The En-Bloc List of Developments Sold, Tendering, Ongoing, and Failed

There's been interest, ironically not by Singaporeans but by expats, on which developments are going en-bloc, simply because (a) they do not want to be hoodwinked by dodgy landlords or agents into a place to stay only to have to move out again if the en-bloc goes through (b) they do not want to stay near an en-bloc property because of noise levels. I guess this would apply to locals as well. So from the papers and from various sources, here's a list of..

  1. En-blocs that are confirmed - Sale has been secured, which means it can be anything from 6 mths to 1 year (but typically not exceeding 15 mths) before people get evicted. This is definitive and sourced from the papers.
  2. En-blocs that just tendered - Developments that have gained the 80% (or close to 80%) majority vote required, and have begun the tender or expression of interest (EOI) exercise. I've included dates so if you don't see this development in the 'confirmed' list in a mth's time, it means the tender was not successful (often not reported in papers). EOI usually indicates that the development has not reached the required 80% mark.
  3. En-blocs that are ongoing - Developments that have either begun talks, or have begun the collection of signatures for the Collective Sale Agreement, which means they have 1 year to collect 80% or the whole thing collapses. This is sometimes reported in the papers and can also be sourced from various internet forums, blogs etc or from marketing agents' presentations. Take this list with a pinch of salt. I'll indicate where they come from so you can gauge for yourselves.
  4. En-blocs that are confirmed unsuccessful - Reported as not achieving the reserve price.
I will update the list as I get more updates. Prices indicated for the confirmed list are their sale price, and for the tendered list prices are their asking or reserve prices. For the ongoing list, prices are asking/RP or what numbers have been discussed at owners' meetings or in their CSAs.

Very ineresting list. My apartment tower is now on the list of confirmed en blocs. As a newcomer to Singapore I wanted to ask if there is any legal recourse for someone like myself who is renting an apartment. My 2 year contract expires in April 2008 however I have heard that the developer wants everybody out by Nov this year. Would I normally be able to claim some form of compensation if forced to move out or not?

Hi anonymous

you might want to check out the Expat Singapore Forum where quite a number of tenants are facing similar situations like yours.

http://www.expatsingapore.com/forum/index.php/topic,5525.180.html

The short answer is "no" - rental law is rigged in the landlord's favour and in all likelihood your tenancy agreement will have a clause that states that the landlord can cut your contract with 1 or 2 mths notice (which means he'll notify you in, say, Sep 07).

Some tenants were able to include into their agreement a 'moving out' clause which means if the apartment they're staying is successfully en bloc'd, and they have to leave before their contract expires, the landlord has to pay for moving costs.

You'll need to check when is legal completion for your tower; if it's before Nov 07, you may be subject to unnecessary noises and pollution as developers move in to do pre-construction work.

Try posting your query on the expat forum discussion on en blocs :)

I think these are already enbloc-ed:

Thanks for the update... Can confirm that Grangeford was just sold, and Silver Tower last year. I couldn't find any further information on Jin Fu, Rich East, and I'm almost certain Holland Peak hasn't started collecting signatures yet. Let me know if you've evidence otherwise - enblocsingapore@hotmail.com. In the meantime, will update the list sometime next week!

Faber garden condominium at Jalan Angklong just completed an EOGM on 19 May to appoint a Sale Committe and also an agent and lawyer as well. Close to 50% of owners attended the meeting held at the Yio Chu Kang grassroots club. The EOGM is not required by law but the pro tem committee insisted on having one and risked a quorum not being achieved.

K Shong said...

Another statistic on the EOGM. Final tally was 61% of the owners showed up for the EOGM at Faber Garden

I have a lease with no such clause about the landlord cutting the contract with 1 or 2 months notice. My lease expires in May 08, but I may have to move out March 08. A lawyer has told me that I can sue for the remaining two months.The landlord may have to pay your rent for those two months at the going rate in the area where you live. My lease looks like a standard one, so I assume most people are in the same boat.

Well, as of a few days ago, Pender Court has finally been sold to the wonderful tune of $80M. The rumor is that no one wanted to sell their units until a certain board member started bullying everyone to sell their units. I don't know if the other owners wanted to sell because they needed the money or just wanted this old man to shut up. Sad sad sad. It's a wonderful place. Huge units- right close to town. Windy. And really- by the time they buy their next apartment- how much of that will be left? I just think this whol en bloc frenzy is all based on speculation- false hopes on how the economy will be once the new Sentosa opens or the Marina resort sprouts up. So now where will everybody go while they are all kicked out? Didn't anyone really ever think of that? Your list of en bloc apartments is scary- displacing that amout of people- that's difficult.

Now I have to look for a new place to rent. What's worse, I can still see people moving in Pender Court- and I know the rent is even more expensive. Greed kills. And it will kill the Singapore economy with all this speculation. After the bubble bursts and the people who sold their places to en bloc will realize their dollar isn't stretched the way they hoped to be, they will regret their decision.

What's happening to Farrer Court enbloc....I have an old aunt who rents an apartment there....could you please advise me as to when she should look for another flat....Thanks you.

Dr Minority said...

Re Farrer Ct,

Last I heard, they were applying for leasehold top up and have yet to apply to STB although that should be soon. Because they have not achieved 100% for the sale, it can take a few mths with STB (anything from 3-6 mths). After that, it should be 3 mths (thereabouts) to legal completion and then 6 mths to vacant possession. In all, your aunt should be able to continue staying there for at least 6-9 mths until legal completion at the least. BUT all these are subject to your aunt's landlord not terminating the rent (which the landlord may do if they want to money by completion).

When STB approves the case, that will be the clearest time for your aunt to contact the landlord for when they want her out. That would be when she starts to look for alternative accoms but bear in mind that a good majority of FC owners may be doing the same as well. It might make better sense for her to terminate the rent and leave now when there are still rentals available in the nearby area, at still-decent rates (imagine when the 600+ FC owners start to look for rentals or sales). Decision is ultimately up to your aunt and her arrangement with the landlord.

Think the unsuccessful enbloc list is too eager to place properties into it. Example like Pacific Mansion, the enbloc process is still on going as the CSA is valid for up to a year. Only that the open tender did not have any bidders. The marketing agent is still working on other ways to sell it enbloc. Only if the property could not be sold when the CSA expired then it should be regarded that the enbloc exercise being unsucessful.

Hi,

I am about to sign up a 1-yr lease for Promises Gdn. Agent has said that it has just been confirmed en-bloc. I like to know how long i would normally be allowed to stay in there before i move out? There is a exit clause for the owner to give 2 mth's notice to vacate the place. I certainly do not want to be caught moving again in 3 mths or worst still have to bear with construction works. Pls advice urgently.

Lakeside Apartments. Any chances of En-bloc? Thinking of getting a unit.

Hi, I saw Welkin Mansion on the En-Bloc Sale notice in the Classified page C29 today 11 Jan 2008. So this development has indeed crossed over.

This so helpful we are looking for somewhere new to rent and would prefer somewhere older with space, but don't want to be turfed out in a year. How often do you update the list?

Dr Minority said...

I have not had the chance to update it since my break, but someone's been helping me compile newspaper cuttings of enbloc ads, so once I get these, I should be able to update the list... hopefully this week!

Hi glad to have come across this blog, very informative.

Would anyone have information on Jubilation Apartment on #2 Akyab Road? On the list above it's in Tendered En bloc. Would you know if it has been moved to Confirmed?

I am currently renting an apt here but the owner has not given any info. There's been a lot of rumors going around with the other residents though. Help! And thanks in advance =)

Am wondering whether The Bayshore has en bloc potential ? Many owners there, it seems, are absentee ones. SO unlikely that these owners will be displaced. Thanks.
