Property Buying Regulations
It gets somewhat more precarious with regards to landed properties, for example, porch houses, lodges and so forth. For the most part, nonnatives are not permitted to buy such landed properties, unless obviously they’re ready to get extraordinary assent from the Singapore Land Authority to do as such. Such authorization is just allowed where the candidate can demonstrate that they make a ‘sufficient financial commitment’ to Singapore – a fairly shapeless in any case, as usual, commonsense standard.
This confinement does not, nonetheless, apply to landed properties that are:
part of a bigger townhouse (for eg. bunch houses or townhouses); or
situated along the selective and rich Sentosa Cove.
