CPF Housing Grant

With new Executive Condominiums’ prices increasing, those eligible may apply for additional CPF Housing Grant to cushion the effect. Regardless of not applying for the CPF Housing Grant, even if you qualify, you will still be considered as applying for subsidised housing. So you might as well apply for it if you qualify.

⚠️ Did you know?

CPF Housing Grant that is disbursed will accrue 2.5% interest per annum. Depending on how long you are holding on to your property, you will return the principal plus accrued interest to your CPF account when you sell your property.

Conditions (After Owning EC)

  • There is a Minimum Occupancy Period (MOP) of 5 years which is the same as HDB rules. You can sell or rent the whole unit at the end of MOP.
  • During the MOP, the Applicants and Essential Occupiers cannot procure any private residential property locally or overseas. So what if you do right? Well, it will be on you if HDB finds out. 🤫
  • If you buy another subsidised housing after selling your EC, you must pay a resale levy of S$55,000. This applies to the 1st Timer if you plan to buy another EC or an HDB flat later. It doesn’t make economic sense, though, as the resale levy could be used more effectively elsewhere.
