Once Temporary Occupation Permit (TOP) is issued and you have paid the progress payment due upon TOP, the developer will inform you of the procedure to collect the key to your unit.

After collecting the key, you can inspect your unit, housing project and common property or limited common property and report any defects to the developer to carry out rectification works.

Delivery of Vacant Possession
The developer is required to deliver vacant possession of the unit to you no later than:

  • The date as specified in the Sale and Purchase Agreement (S&PA); and,
  • 21 days from the date of receipt of the payment of 25% of the purchase price. This payment is due when TOP has been issued, and the roads, drainage and sewerage works serving the housing project have been completed (item 3 of the payment schedule).
