1. Can not buy a existing residence - must be off the plan or in construction.  ( however temporary resident can buy as main resident subject to approval)


2. If it's a brand new construction , and the loan is for the land only, the building must start construction within 24  month


3. Property must be for investing only


4.For redevelopment - you can not rent out the existing building, only the newly built one can be rented out.
