File a Notice of Transfer

Lawyers generally submit the Notice of Transfer on behalf of the seller/transferor of the property using the online services provided by IRAS.

Obligation to File Notice

When any property is sold or transferred, the seller or transferor shall, within one month after the sale or transfer, give notice of the sale or transfer to IRAS.

Multiple Transferees

Where there is more than one owner, all correspondence relating to property tax matters will be addressed to the first name stated in the Notice of Transfer. Hence, lawyers are advised to confirm with the new owners on the name of the addresses before filing.

Online Filing Services

Lawyers are able to file the Notice of Transfer on behalf of the sellers/transferors via e-Notice of Transfer (e-NT) system in at no cost. To provide greater convenience, we have simplified the form (available from 30 Jul 2015) to make it easier for lawyers to file e-NT.

Information required for filing includes:

  1. Sale and Purchase Agreement;
  2. Name and identification number of the transferor; and
  3. Name(s), nationality and identification number(s) of the transferee(s)*

*For correspondence and payment, IRAS will correspond with the owner who is listed first in the e-NT.

Once your Notice of Transfer has been transmitted via the e-NT, you will see an on-screen acknowledgement.
