What is MOP period for EC ?

To set the context, minimum occupancy period (MOP) is a HDB stipulated time frame in which the first owner of an EC needs to fulfil before he or she can resell the EC in the open resale market.

For EC, the first owner would need to fulfil a 5 year MOP period. Within this 5 years, owners will need to adhere to the following restriction.

  • Owners will not be able to resell EC in the open market.
  • Owners will not be able to rent out the entire EC, while renting out of rooms is permitted.
  • Essential occupiers in EC are not permitted to be listed as occupiers or applicant for another HDB or EC.
  • Both owners and occupiers are not permitted to invest in another private residential property before fulfilling the 5 year MOP period.

After fulfilling the 5 year MOP period, EC owners are eligible to resell their units on the open market for sale to both Singapore citizens and Singapore permanent residents. And options such as decoupling EC becomes available to EC owners as well.

After fulfilling a 10 year occupancy period, EC owners will then be eligible to resell their unit to foreigner and corporate entities.
