Progressive Payment Schedule for Commercial Properties Under Construction in Singapore

Sale and Purchase Agreement

Under the standard Sale and Purchase Agreement, buyers are required to make portion instalments of the purchase price of the property, commonly alluded to as progressive payment, as and when the developer finishes the different phases of development of the project.  Instalment payments up to the issues of Temporary Occupational Permit or when the keys are issued to the owners of the purchased unit are to be paid into the Project Account which the developer is required to keep up with a bank or monetary organization.

Singapore Housing Developers Act

Developers are regulated under the Singapore Housing Developers (Control and Licensing) Act (Chapter 130) (the “Act”) and use the standard form of the sale and purchase agreement 2 (the “SPA”).

The developer similarly passes to the purchaser the risks of ownership such as a progressive instalment payment schedule that is designed to progressively match and pay for the contracted purchase price of the uncompleted property unit as the construction progresses. The payment schedule as specified in the standard SPA is also systematically aligned to the stage of completion certified by a qualified person as defined under section 2(1) of the Building Control Act (Chapter 29)
