2 things to take note of
Due to the nature of the initiative, all successful purchasers are advised to take note of 2 clauses that separate its properties from other properties in the market.
- Firstly, the properties are subjected to a 10-year moratorium. To put it simply, you will NOT be able to sell or transfer your PR1MA property to another party without prior approval during the said period.
- Secondly, the property must be owner occupied. If you own one, you have to stay in it, without exception. So, forget about earning some extra cash by renting it out.
