    From Lawhub:

    "The Residential Property Act defines a "foreign person" as any person who is not a citizen of Singapore, a permanent resident and any foreign company or converted foreign company. Any person or entity falling under this category is totally restricted from owning landed residential property unless approval is obtained from the Controller of Residential Property."

    It would seem that a local company (perhaps with only shareholders who are Singapore citizens) is excluded from the restricted list and should be eligible to buy any landed properties in Singapore.

    Not sure how realistic to pool the money from the forumers to buy a GCB. With the new formula for minister salary, I see GCB will be the only investment grade property in Singapore.

    Thanks,

    Default Form Our Own Company

    If we are aiming at a GCB mainly for capital gain purpose, can we form our own company?

    Let's say we need S$50M in total, what is the leverage allowed? LTV 40%? Then we need S$20M owner's capital.

    So we need 20 - 100 people to form this company.

    What is the legal structure? Limited Liability Parteners?

    Any serious takers? I truely believe the new ministers' pay structure (pegged with the richest 500 earners) will make GCB price fly.

    Thanks,
    Richard

    If I can get $20mil capital and a few JV partners, I would rather buy land and develop. That one can sell 50% of units and then the rest is yours free to rent out. Or you can sell 100% and try another new landed.

    On a side note, the power of the RICH is scary..
    My dad met an indonesian who lives in IonOrchard. My dad went up to view his apartment of around 3000sqft and he bought it around $11mil(according to the guy). According to my dad, the condo is only for family members to come for holidays stay. Rest of the time, it is empty. And the guy is not in a hurry to dispose his property, talk about holding power....

    Anyway, my dad sour grapes..hehe.. He said nothing special abt the place except got lotsa marbles...

    Who clean the house before they come?
    Hope they dont bring the maids to Singapore.

    I am critical of the way the rich Indonesian Chinese conduct themselves in Indonesia.
    They boast of their expenditure and travel to their employees, maids, servants of native origin. At Changi airport, I overheard one lady telling her maid that she go to singapore like riding a "becak" (trishaw). . Another time, one boss told his employee they spend $1000 on a meal, inclusive of lobster in Singapore. . That employee probably have to work like 3 months to get that amount.

    Hope the rich chinese conduct themselves when amongst the natives.If unrest in Indonesia, they can fly out anytime but common chinese like myself have to bear the consequences of their arrogance.

    Hi hopeful, so far all of the Indonesian Chinese whom I have encountered are all very humble and nice people, although they are rich.
    So I guess these are the rich but not the super rich ones?

    GCB (Good class bungalows) is related to the highest and most precious type of land housing in Singapore. The term "Good Class Bungalow" is actually a URA planning term. There are about 39 other residential areas which we say as Good Class Bungalow areas.
    Only after the destruction there is construction.

    Arrogance is nothing to do with Rich and Wealth. You mean you don not mind when other rich people behave arrogance as long as the are not Indonesian Chinese. Or you really believe that only rich Indonesian Chinese that can behave arrogance and the rest or rich Chinese from other part of the world none of them do not behave arrogance.

    You confuse me
