    Buyer of units at The Suites gets a break

    Six-month extension for 51-unit purchaser comes with price of $500,000 a month of which the first has been paid

    By UMA SHANKARI


    KEPPEL Land yesterday said that it has granted a six-month payment extension to a buyer who purchased 51 apartments in its 157-unit The Suites @ Central project.

    The buyer purchased the units in an en bloc deal for an average price of $1,806 per sq ft under the deferred payment scheme (DPS) in June 2007 - at the height of the property market boom.

    Keppel Land, which jointly developed The Suites @ Central with Chip Eng Seng, did not disclose the buyer's identity.

    Upon the execution of sale-and-purchase agreements, the buyer paid 20 per cent of the purchase price, with the balance of $1,445 psf due after the project obtains its temporary occupation permit (TOP).

    Units at the fully-sold The Suites @ Central have been progressively handed over to purchasers since TOP was obtained.

    The buyer of the 51 units has since asked to extend the due date to arrange funds for payment. Keppel Land and Chip Eng Seng have agreed to a six-month extension that started yesterday.

    But the extension is subject to the purchaser paying $500,000 a month during the extension period. The first payment of $500,000 has been received, Keppel Land said.

    The Suites @ Central was developed by Devonshire Development, 60 per cent owned by Keppel Land and 40 per cent by CEL Development, the property arm of the Chip Eng Seng group.

    Last month, it emerged that a China investor that bought 20 units in MCL Land's The Fernhill condo failed to pay about $30 million that was due when the project received its TOP.

    As a result, MCL Land booked first-quarter profit from only five units in the 25-unit freehold project for which buyers have paid the outstanding balance by the due date.

    The investor, Concordia Overseas, subsequently managed to re-sell 19 of the 20 units.

    Market watchers have said that developers who sold projects on DPS at peak prices in 2007 and early 2008 may have reason to worry if buyers do not pay up as the projects are completed in the coming months.

    Such developers may have to sue buyers to get them to complete the purchase at the contracted price, or agree to a payment extension.

    Developer says: time to pay up Buyer says: give me more time

    51 units in luxury condo bought under deferred payment

    By Fiona Chan


    ANOTHER buyer who purchased luxury condominiums in bulk under the deferred payment scheme is now having trouble paying up.

    Keppel Land said yesterday that an Indonesian investor who bought 51 units at The Suites @ Central in Devonshire Road has asked for more time to cough up the final payments.

    The investor paid $1,806 per sq ft (psf) for the freehold apartments, which were bought in June 2007, Keppel said in a filing to the Singapore Exchange. It would not disclose the total price of the units or whether the investor is an individual or an institution, such as a company or a fund.

    But a check of the Urban Redevelopment Authority's (URA) Realis caveats shows that a series of 51 units were sold at that time for a total of $127 million. The units were not bought in a single block and do not appear to make up entire floors, but span the second to the 33rd floors.

    The units were bought under the deferred payment scheme. This means the buyer made a downpayment of 20 per cent of the purchase price and then deferred the rest of the payments until the apartments were completed.

    The Suites @ Central was completed in February, but the buyer failed to pay up on time.

    Two other buyers, both Singaporeans, also missed the payment deadline, Keppel said. One had bought two apartments in the fully-sold project; the other had bought three.

    Keppel has received payment for the other 101 apartments in the 157-unit project, which is a 60-40 joint venture between Keppel and Chip Eng Seng.

    The Indonesian buyer has asked for an extension of the payment deadline in order to 'arrange funds for payments', Keppel said.

    The developer has agreed to a six-month extension starting from yesterday, but is requiring the Indonesian buyer to pay $500,000 per month during the extension period. The first payment has already been received, Keppel said.

    Other developers have also recently reported problems collecting payments for units they sold under the deferred payment scheme.

    MCL Land ran into trouble last month with the buyer of its Fernhill condominium off Stevens Road. The buyer, reported to be a company called Concordia Overseas controlled by a Hong Kong resident named Chan Ki, had purchased all 25 units in the project and managed to resell five soon after.

    But when the time came to make payment for the 20 units it still owned, Concordia missed a few deadlines. It subsequently managed to resell 19 units in time to meet the final deadline, but reportedly at a loss.

    The price Concordia paid for the units was $1,410 psf, but the Business Times reported that it fetched only $1,180 psf for the 19 units it resold.

    Market watchers said that if the Indonesian buyer of the 51 units at The Suites @ Central has to offload the apartments in a hurry, it may end up making a loss.

    The average price of apartments at the project has fallen to about $1,470 psf, according to five caveats lodged for units that have been sold so far this year.

    More buyers with payment problems could surface in the coming months, as the property slump coincides with the fallout from the deferred payment scheme, which was scrapped in October 2007.

    Some 29,250 homes planned for completion between last year and 2013 were offered with the deferred payment scheme, the URA revealed last year. Analysts have estimated that about 14,000 were actually sold under the scheme.

    But even if a handful of buyers default, it may not be statistically significant, noted Mr Nicholas Mak, director of research and consultancy at Knight Frank.

    At CapitaLand's RiverGate, about 2 per cent of buyers have missed payments since the project was completed in March, the developer said on Thursday. Most of the project's buyers had opted to take the deferred payment scheme.

    'Two per cent is not an alarming figure,' said Mr Mak. 'Once in a while you get cases like a single buyer unable to pay for 51 units but, if you look at the bigger picture, it may just be a small proportion.'

    But he added that next year will be the time of reckoning, as many projects that were sold during the height of the market - in the second half of 2007 and early last year - will be completed then, with the bulk of their payments due.

    the catch is loan % .. smaller loan quantum maybe 70% still can break even
    but now asking psf has shot up to ove 1700psf

    How you get $4k pm instalment? Loan $992k at 1.6% interest for 35 years, instalment only $3086 pm wah!

    Even if consider 2.5% interest, instalment only $3546 pm! Housing loan interest rate unlikely to go up much with so much paper money floating around looking for higher yield as bank interest is <1% p.a. (so much of these have overflown into properties where yield is still at a decent 3.5-4%).

    Loan $992k for tenure of 35 years at 1.99% interest rate (fixed for 3 years), instalment only $3281 (cheap wah and good deal some more! Hard to find such good deal, thus I doubt it will last).

    i maybe wrong about the rates

    but at 1.99 pct $3280 a mth + maintenance , say 250 .. that $ 3530 .. and renting out at 4.3k ...meaning $770 for keep a mth ?

    risk /reward not very good ..

    and my friend sign 2 yr contract ..according to him ..the landlord is second owner ..so i am not sure what psf he paid ..

    and even if price continues up ..he leases it out for 2 yrs...can he chase my friend out ? if he decides to sell ?
    would anyone buy with a tenancy of 4.3k by which time ?

    Why not? Getting a net profit of $770 pm after interest for 2 years to get over this low rental period and by then rental would have gone up when subject to renewal and price would have gone up as well. Investing in investment property is all about price appreciation. If buy for own stay, as long as a person is comfortable and like the place and can afford, any price is OK.

    not everybody can borrow up to 35 years also...meaning potentially, the monthly payments are higher, maybe much higher...

    Now Andy, this is more like it...more realistic than the Centro @ AMK posting. Assuming this goes for 8k, how can Suites @ Central be worth more than $2000psf?

    yup, i know you are not the above andy. When I went to view it 1 or 2 months back, the agent selling for the 50+ unit Indo buyer who defaulted, quoted me 2000psf leh. I think now whittered down to around 30 units or less but not sure if they have lowered their asking prices.
