What is a suppressed title under the Paperless Titles Scheme by the Singapore Land Authority (SLA)?

A suppressed title refers to a property title that is no longer issued in paper form under the Paperless Titles Scheme implemented by the Singapore Land Authority (SLA).

Starting from 1 June 2017, as part of the Scheme, SLA ceased the printing of paper title documents for properties that are charged or mortgaged to Monetary Authority of Singapore (MAS) – licensed financial institutions (eg. DBS, OCBC, UOB) and Central Provident Fund Board (CPF Board). Instead, these titles are managed electronically and are termed as “suppressed” because the physical documents are no longer produced.

Accordingly, if your property is still charged or mortgaged to a bank and/or CPF Board, no paper title of your property will be issued to you.
