Facilitating Seamless, Efficient, & Secure Property Transactions

The Digitalised Property Transactions Workgroup is driving initiatives to enable the real estate industry to streamline and digitalise property transaction processes.

Roll out enablers to automate checks

Government agencies will progressively make available Application Programming Interfaces (APIs) on property-related government data.

The industry can then tap on these APIs to automate due diligence checks (e.g. property ownership, validity of passes for foreign tenants) and compliance without compromising data privacy. 

With automated processes, parties in the transaction can be assured that due diligence checks have been carried out using government-verified data. Property agents can also save time and focus on higher-value work.

Streamline property transactions

The DPTWG is developing digitalised standardised contract templates for and identifying the steps involved in residential property transactions.

The industry can develop new or enhance existing portals/platforms by building in the set of action steps to offer seamless and efficient transaction processes.

Property agents can expect to enjoy greater productivity and efficiency. In addition, interests of all parties involved in the transaction are protected as terms in the contracts are designed to be fair to all.

The workgroup has completed the checklists for renting of HDB flats and private residential properties
