What is a Landed Property?

4 Oct, 2021

Landed property is what we call the land and the building on it. The term “land” in a Singapore context means not just what you can see but what lies beneath it, such as the earth’s surface including what’s underground, what’s under the sea and what’s aboveground. For example, a house with a garden would be called landed property because there is both the house and there is land to grow crops. In Singapore, landed properties are usually sold by developers or builders to individual buyers who will then occupy them.

What is a Landed Property?

Landed properties, according to the law, are properties that are directly attached to the land that you purchase. These properties may have different tenures and rules than their non-landed counterparts in the private and public sectors – flats under the Housing Development Board, for example (HDB).

What are the benefits of owning a Landed Property?

  • Owning a landed property is an investment
  • Landed properties are usually sold by developers or builders to individual buyers who will then occupy them
  • Singapore government regulates what can be built on the land so it’s not just what you see but what lies beneath it, such as what’s underground and what’s under the sea
  • Landed properties are usually priced higher than HDBs because of their size and location
  • The government restricts how much space can be used for residential purposes in order to maintain a balance between commercial and residential areas
  • In Singapore, owning a landed property means having more privacy because there is no one above you or below you living in close proximity

What is the difference between Freehold and Leasehold Properties?

You own your property outright if you have a freehold for an indefinite period of time (term). A leasehold, on the other hand, means that you only own the property for a set number of years. The property reverts to the freeholder at the end of the term. This can be a costly distinction – and one that you should be aware of before you commit to purchasing a home.

What is a Land Title?

A land title, also known as a certificate of title, is a formal document that outlines the rights that a person or people have in a piece of property. While a title is commonly used to confirm property ownership, it can also assist prospective purchasers and land owners in learning more about existing liens, usage rights, easements, natural resource rights, and other rights. If your name is not listed on a property title, another party may legally own the property.

All property records in a given county are kept in the clerk’s office at the county courthouse. All legally recognized land rights and ownership transfers are recorded in the clerk’s office. In land disputes, recorded documents take precedence over informal ones.

What will be my monthly expenses for owning a landed property?

Terraced houses, semi-detached houses, detached houses, and bungalows are examples of landed properties. Because of Singapore’s small land area and large population, landed property is no longer very common and, as a result, quite expensive to rent. The average monthly rent for detached bungalows in prime locations is close to S$18,000. A high-end luxurious bungalow (four bedrooms, 1,400 square meters of land, and a large garden) can cost up to S$35,000 per month. Terraced and semi-detached houses are less expensive and can be rented for S$8,000 to S$13,000 per month.

Conclusion

Landed properties are what we call the land and the building on it. The term “land” in a Singapore context means not just what you can see but what lies beneath it, such as what’s underground, what’s under the sea and what’s above ground. For example, a house with a garden would be called landed property because there is both the house and there is land to grow crops. In Singapore, landed properties are usually sold by developers or builders to individual buyers who will then occupy them.    =>Owning a landed property has its benefits: more privacy since no one lives below you or next door; higher valued; often cheaper than renting an HDB once all expenses (mortgage/rental deposit) are factored.
