Hi, I would like to check whether is it possible to sell a property under construction?

Can any one advise me on this?

So it means that if the developer does not allow it then there's no way that the owner could sell the property until the completion of the property.. So that means I have to speak to the Developer or check the S&P for further clarifications...

Yes, check with Developer... because they are the one to holding the title now (Master).. some developer ok but some they would suggest sell only upon VP, then u have to approach your Developer... 2nd, you have to pay bank penalty for early / half way redeem loan ...

This is an interesting scenario especially if your buyer is taking a bank loan. How would the bank treat this transaction especially since it is partial drawdown and you cannot assign your rights since the property is yet to be completed.

In my limited legal knowledge, I think the best way would be for a conditional SPA where the buyer will pay the vendor an agreed deposit and to draw down only after the assignment can be done.

Thanks everyone.. have check with the Developer and they do not allow any transfer of ownership during construction but we still can have sub-sale on the side and the new owner will only pay us 10% and the balance upon completion and hand-over of the key... so I guess not much difference if I sell it after completion of the property..

Thanks again...

I believe most developers won't allow buyers do that coz it will affect their sale on left over units as well as next phase in the project!

As what I have said above, you can go into a conditional SPA like what the developer has told you. There is actually a difference whether you sell it now or later. Prices might go up and prices might go down. If prices go up or if you forecast prices to go up, then better wait. But if you think prices might drop, then you can get the person to sign now and if they refuse to buy after the prices go down, then at least you earn yourself a neat 10%.

i think it's a big difference cuz usually the price hikes after completion of the property
