Navigating in Singapore's New Residential Landscape

The Singapore government's concerns around the increase in private home prices seen in the first half of 2018, especially with rising interest rates and significant pipeline supply, led to a decision to intervene in the private residential market.

On July 5, 2018, the authorities raised the additional buyer’s stamp duty rates and lowered loan-to-value limits for residential property purchases “to cool the property market and keep price increases in line with economic fundamentals”.
