Maintenance of buildings

20. How often do I have to paint my building?

Building owners are required to paint the external walls of their buildings at intervals of not more than five years. However, if the paintwork on your external walls is still in good condition after a period of five years, you may write to the Commissioner of Buildings for approval to delay the painting.

BUILDING MAINTENANCE AND STRATA MANAGEMENT ACT 2004 (ACT 47 OF 2004)

4. Every owner of any building, common property or limited common property shall ensure that ––

(a) the external walls of the building are neat and tidy in appearance;

(b) the painted external walls of the building are painted to the satisfaction of the Commissioner at intervals of not more than 5 years or such longer interval as the Commissioner, in any particular case, may determine; and

(c) the exterior gates and fences (including wall fences and railings) are repaired without delay when damaged and, if painted or to be painted, are painted to the satisfaction of the Commissioner.
