SINGAPORE : New measures to better protect property buyers and sellers from rogue lawyers will kick in from August 1.
They are part of the Conveyancing (Miscellaneous Amendments) Bill that was passed in Parliament in April and was gazetted on July 8.
The aim is to tighten safeguards for conveyancing money held by lawyers.
Lawyers will no longer be allowed to receive and hold such money in their normal client accounts.
Instead, the money must be held in special accounts, which will be offered by banks appointed by the Ministry of Law.

The fund manager charges this Profit Fee only when generating profits, if there is no profit, then there's no Profit Fee. There is no other rate or charge or Management Fee.
