30-year lease (HDB studio apartments)
60-year lease (private housings)
99-year lease (executive condominiums, private housings, all HDB flats except for studio apartments)
103-year lease (private housings) (Theses houses sit on freehold land owned by private developers.)
999-year lease (private housings)

*A land at Jalan Jurong Kechil is your initial 60-year-lease plot to be sold (on 15 November 2012) for residential development; thus 60-year-lease homes are going to available in a short time.
Most housings in Singapore either in the latter group freehold or 99-year lease, with disorderly making increase the bulk.
A 999-year lease will be equivalent to freehold.
While 30-year-lease HDB studio apartments are available short supply and basically meant for elderly owners.
Private developments with a 103-year lease period (the lease period is according to the developer) on freehold land are few and between. At the expiry from the lease, the non-governmental land owner delivers the right to re-acquire dirt (i.e. reversionary right), sell the freehold tenure or extend the lease of a price.
Residential properties with 60-year lease aren’t available yet, but is in several years’ time when development on the very 60-year leasehold residential land plot at Jalan Jurong Kechil is done.
Homes in Singapore are predominantly 99-year leasehold given that the government sells most lands on 99-year tenure due to land scarcity in this country. At the end of the lease period, the state can obtain the land any kind of compensation to the home individuals. Currently, the government doesn’t offer freehold land parcels for sales anymore, aside from the sale of remnant State land to the adjoining landowner whose existing private land is already held underneath a freehold 7steps.
However, topping up on the lease of leasehold private housings is allowed.

The granting of extension is on the case-by-case basis and tend to be considered when the development is actually in line with Government’s planning intentions, maintained relevant agencies, and just ends up with land use intensification, mitigation of property decay and preservation of community. In case the extension is approved, a land premium, decided along with Chief Valuer, will pay. The new lease will not exceed the original, visualize new and different will be the shorter of the original or affinity serangoon the lease in accordance with URA’s planning intention.
In addition, near finish of the lease period the State may need the land with regard to returned in its original types of conditions. If so, demolition of buildings, land fillings, etc. will have to be borne coming from the current lessees.
For HDB flats, legally the flat will be returned to HDB in the end from the lease. HDB does canrrrt you create to make any monetary compensation, or offer a replacement flat to your owners. Owners may be required to get any fixtures fitting.
