(3) status and tenure (whether if the property is freehold or leasehold),

(4) area and built-up size of the land, and

(5) any other conditions which could potentially affect the use of the property.

You can always hire a lawyer to conduct the above mentioned search on the relevant land or subsales property if you have no idea of where to search online for it.

Most importantly, always ensure all the financial matters related to the subsales property, such as the up-to-date utilities payment, assessment rate and more, is fully disclosed to you.


Before making the decision of purchase, always bear in mind to have professionals go over for inspections on potential problems. 5 main problems which you should take extra precaution on when performing an inspection:

(1) always look for sign of water or moisture damage inside and outside, clogged drains, fresh cement or pain hiding in the property’s pipes and plumbing system,

(2) check for broken tiles or leaking roofs,

(3) look around for signs of termites or decay on wooden doors and window frames,

(4) check if there is any mold or mildew in the corners, cupboards and damp areas of the property and,
