The condominium is one of the most common type of private estate in Singapore. Compared to public housing, it is recognized by its provision of common facilities such as private swimming pools, tennis courts, gym and the presence of security guards on duty.
Condominium is pretty similar to what an apartment estate consists of, the key difference lies in the total land area of a condominium development which needs to be at least 4,000 square metres or larger. There is also a lack of facilities(or less) compared to the condominium.
In terms of eligibility of purchase, there is little difference between the two and no restrictions on foreign ownership.
Landed property tenure is tied to the land title, thus the definition. Most landed properties are freehold although there are some 99 and 999-year leaseholds in the market as well.
