To avoid all the security issues that might pop up as a consequence of selling the flats, The Rivercove Residences Project has adopted the EC conditions of purchase. The Rivercove Residences, being such a big project cannot afford to take up any kind of inconvenience. If you are planning to apply for an EC, then here are few schemes that you have to follow and apply accordingly:

Under the public scheme, you will have to be one of these families:

  • For widows or divorces applicants, children should be under your care or custody legally.

You should see to it that you are strictly following these conditions and you are not mixing up any of these conditions. If the rule says parents and sibling, it should be that way and you should mix it up with spouse and sibling. It is a must that you take great care when you are applying.
