Just be honest and direct with your agent regarding every single meticulous detail from the condition of your property to the pricing you have in mind etc. and leave the rest to them.

Sign on the Dotted Line:

Once a price has been agreed and a contract/Form F signed by both parties, the sale documents are prepared, which include Purchase Sales Agreement, an original title deed, floor plans, and location map. This is how it goes next:

The seller and buyer sign a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) through the real estate agent and the buyer pays a 10% deposit held by the broker. If financing is involved, the buyer’s bank conducts an independent property survey to determine the buyer’s loan amount, and to ensure the sale price is at a fair market level – a property assessment is required before transfer. Following the assessment, the buyer’s bank issues a final offer letter (not required for cash buyers).


In case the Property is Mortgaged:

The scenario switches a little if the property is mortgaged. In this case, the seller obtains a liability letter from their bank (cash sellers will not need this step), valid for 15 days. Once the liability letter is received, the buyer’s bank pays off the seller’s mortgage. The seller may be required to sign some documents, as advised by the buyer’s bank or mortgage consultant. After mortgage settlement by the buyer’s bank, the seller’s bank issues clearance documentation, around 5 days after the loan has been cleared. The buyer’s bank must settle the seller’s mortgage, prior to No Objection Certificate (NOC) application — which is the developer’s consent that the property is free of debt, ties or liens and can be transferred.

All parties (buyer/seller/agent/conveyancer) meet at the developer’s office to apply for a NOC. The property also requires clearance for any outstanding service charges. The NOC is submitted to the buyer’s bank, which then prepares the final transfer documentation. All parties (buyer, seller, buyers bank or mortgage consultant, agent or conveyancer) meet at a RERA approved transfer center (or developer’s office for property still under construction) to issue the buyer or buyer’s bank a title deed with new ownership details.
