As the penthouse is purchased using a trust, the acquisition has to be built totally in cash money beforehand, consisting of the 65% additional buyer’s stamp duty (ABSD). The 65% ABSD measures up $4.875 million and also comes on top of the 6% in purchaser’s stamp duty, which amounts to $450,000, carrying the total cash money payable upfront to $12.825 million.

Situated on Cairnhill Roadway, simply off the prime shopping section of Orchard Road, Cairnhill Nine has a prime District 9 address. It is directly connected to Paragon shopping center on the 2nd level using an air-conditioned expenses bridge across Bideford Roadway, simply off the prime Orchard Road.

“The trust structure is actually for the cash-rich since you can’t get financing for these acquisitions, and you need to be prepared to pay for 65% ABSD in advance in addition to the property’s acquisition price,” according to Lee.

A real property title search shows that the 3,186 sq ft penthouse at Cairnhill Nine is carried by Zico Trust (S) Ltd, a separate trustee as well as fiduciary services company regulated by the Monetary Authority of Singapore.

Cairnhill 9 is part of a 99-year leasehold, mixed-use property development that consists of Ascott Orchard Singapore, the 220-suite, deluxe serviced apartments. Ascott Orchard Singapore has a mix of studios to two-bedroom suites.

Cairnhill Nine was finalized in late 2016, while Ascott Orchard Singapore opened in 2017.

The IRAS is going to assess whether or not the refund issues are met, as well as the process takes about 2 to 3 months, claims Lee Liat Yeang, senior partner in Dentons Rodyk’s property practice team. If the receiver is a Singapore citizen without any other residential property, the complete 65% can possibly be refunded, he adds.
