Thinking of buying and staying in a condominium? The roles and responsibilities are different from staying in an HDB flat or landed property. It is important for first-time condominium buyers to fully understand the considerations of owning a condominium unit, before purchasing one.
Whether you intend to purchase a new condo from a developer or a resale condo from an existing homeowner, it is important to be well informed about both the unit and the estate before making the investment. Any unwanted surprises later could mean additional costs for you.
This checklist aims to guide you through the various aspects of condo living before deciding to stay in one.
Do note that this list is non-exhaustive. You may wish to request for more information from the developer, seller, or real estate agent where needed and consider seeking independent legal advice.
