CEA seminar to cover buying and leasing property

The Council for Estate Agencies (CEA) and the Consumers Association of Singapore (CASE) will conduct a public seminar this month on topics including buying homes in new developments, leasing property and the potential problems in real estate transactions.

The last of a four-part series that began last August, the seminar on May 24 will be held at NTUC Centre, 1 Marina Boulevard from 10am to 1pm.

Mr Chris Koh, key executive officer of the eponymous property consultancy Chris International will guide home buyers through the process of purchasing properties in new developments. Seminar participants will find out how much they can rely on a developer’s sales brochure, learn what is strata void area and what to look out for when taking over a new property.

Dr Tan Tee Khoon, key executive officer of KF Property Network, will cover the topic of leasing residential property — who is eligible to rent what type of property and whether short-term leasing is allowed.

Mr Yeap Soon Teck, deputy director (Licensing) at the CEA, will talk about the common problems encountered in property transactions and how to avoid these pitfalls. The CEA handles more than 1,000 complaints a year, often over unprofessional or poor service from real estate salespersons.

The admission fee is S$10. Call 6461 1842 or email to [email protected] for details.
