Lawyer and secretary experience and knowledge with regards to property decoupling

4 Star

We spoke to both the legal secretary in charge for decoupling property and the lawyer specialising in decoupling property.

Both parties were very professional and knowledgeable. We spoke at length about the intricacies of decoupling, addressing the questions commonly asked by our clients.

Here are some example of questions we asked

  • What is the shortest time frame in which one can purchase a second property without ABSD when decoupling ?
  • How to ensure property payment trail when decoupling to prevent any legal complications ?
  • The appropriate time buffer to set for cash and CPF to flow back into the owners account to purchase their second property.

Both parties are very experienced and very well versed in their knowledge with regards to this topic.

But what’s notable is their ability to communicate it in a manner that is very easy for our clients to understand.

The overall experience was very reassuring and insightful.

Friendliness and willingness to share knowledge

5 Star

In the process of decoupling your property, you would have quite a few questions that you will like to clarify with your lawyers. So it is important that you select a lawyer that not only has the legal expertise to guide you but also is willing to spend some time to explains stuff and share their knowledge with you.

Advent law corporation performed really well in this aspect. Interestingly the firm is structured in such a way whereby you get to have direct access to speak to the decoupling lawyers.

And the lawyers were very open to share their knowledge and clarify your questions.

Timeliness and speed to response to questions

For issues related to property conveyance for both sale and purchase of property, time is of the essence.

When you come across an opportunity that you would like to act on, you like to clarify any legal related questions with your lawyers quickly.

4 Star

Advent law corporation response time to any question is relatively fast and efficient. We put in our enquiries over the phone, within 15 mins we receive a call back from a lawyer.

This is pretty impressive as we had experience of lawyer taking days to answer a pending question possed to them.

“Rui Ying provided excellent services when it came to the transfer of ownership of my home, especially since my case wasn’t as straight forward. She went the extra mile at times and I truly appreciate her eye for detail. Very meticulous and quick to respond the entire process.”

Jereld Xu

“Excellent service and reasonably priced for purchase of my new home. Many thanks to Ruiying and team, who were always responsive and ready to go the extra mile to assist. Especially impressive as its during these post covid times when we faced multiple uncertainties in the development and administrative delays from the developer.”

Kah Meng Ong

5 stars
“Excellent service from Shirley Hoo of Advent Law! Without her professional knowledge and advice on the whether to proceed or not with exercising of the OTP of a private property purchase where the property does not have a CSC could end up in a length court case! Her persistent and determination sticking with me throughout the ordeal has helped me to get back my 1% and rescind the OTP so that I can look for a better property! Really take my hat off to Shirley for staying back in the office until 9pm to help with the negotiation with the unreasonable seller who insisted me to exercise the OTP and settle their problem of not having a CSC despite them living in the property for over 5 years if I were to exercise the OTP!”
