Here is a typical progress payment schedule for a condo unit.

You must ensure that all payments due to the developer are made promptly according to the payment schedule (click here, Form 4 for landed housing; Form 5 for condominium/ executive condominium) in the S&PA.

Installment payments of the purchase price have to be made at the completion of each stage of the project construction. Prior to that, the Qualified Person (a registered architect or professional engineer) engaged by the developer will issue a copy of the requisite certificate at each stage to certify the completion.
