Buying Property

When buying a private residential property, ensure that it does not have any unauthorised works and extensions or is currently not used inappropriately. Otherwise you may be liable for them after taking over the property.

  1. Ask the seller for a copy of approved plans, or
  2. Submit DC15 - Requisition of Planning Records to URA to obtain a copy of the approved plans.

If you are planning to renovate or redevelop after buying the property, you should also check what the approved plans are.
