KEY FACTS OF REAL ESTATE ACQUISITIONS UNDER SINGAPOREAN LAW -
There are two systems of land registration in Singapore: registration under the Registration of Deeds Act, known as “unregistered land”, and registration under the Land Titles Act, known as “registered land”. Currently, most land in Singapore has been converted and brought under the latter registration system. As such, most of this article will be concerned only with land registered under the Land Titles Act. The entity overseeing the land registration in Singapore is the Singapore Land Authority (“SLA”).
Other relevant legislation governing real estate law in Singapore include the Land Titles (Strata) Act, the State Lands Act, the Land Acquisition Act, the Planning Act, the Residential Property Act, and the Housing and Development Act.
