2 Things to Take Note Of When You’re a PR1MA Home Owner
Due to the nature of the PR1MA initiative, all successful purchasers are advised to take note of 2 clauses that separate PR1MA properties from other properties in the market.
Firstly, PR1MA 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 from PR1MA during the said period.
Secondly, PR1MA properties MUST be owner occupied. If you own one, you have to stay in it, without exception!
