Leases running out for these old homes

The reality of an expiring lease is slowly seeping in for an estimated 30 households – out of 190 private landed homes – still living in the Geylang Lorong 3 estate.

Besides Geylang Lorong 3, there are at least three other private residential estates with fewer than 40 years left on the lease. At Jalan Chempaka Kuning in Bedok, a 70-year leasehold property with 17 years left, residents have been asking the land’s trustee to extend the lease at each annual general meeting.

Four private estates with less than 40 years of lease left:

A) GEYLANG LORONG 3

Tenure: 60-year leasehold from 1960 Lease expiry: 2020
