Homes sold as leasehold tenures on freehold sites

Uncommon approach to selling The Shore Residences has pros and cons
Owners of The Shore Residences may be unaware that they are part of a small group to have bought units sold with leasehold tenures, though the developer owns a freehold land title.
The 408 units condominium in Marine Parade got its temporary occupation permit in January.
Its developer Far East Organization in 2009 took the rare step of selling units with a 103-year lease even though the land is freehold – a scarce commodity in Singapore.
the shore residences

 

Experts say the move allows a developer to retain the freehold land for redevelopment later, rather than selling away the title.
Experts estimated that freehold home could command a premium of about 15 to 20 per cent over similar leasehold units, so developers who sell such homes do not get the land’s full value. The units are more affordable, as a result.
As younger buyers become more receptive to properties with shorter leases, these units are attractive their lower prices means a higher rental yield compare with freehold units.
But buying such a property could become thorny, noted Century 21 chief executive Ku Swee Yong, as any eventual en bloc sale requires the land owner’s consent. Even if  green light is given, he is not obliged to extend the tenure, and the fees require to do so would be at his discretion.
Such development strategy is preferred by family-owned businesses, who are less concerned with delivering results to share-holders, as opposed to listed firms. They can possess freehold land through collective sales or in-heritance.
