For personal reference only. 
In Singapore, most sales and purchase (S&P) agreements usually incorporate by reference the Singapore Law Society's Conditions of Sale 1999.
 
There are 33 condtions. These conditions are not compulsory but most agreements have reference to them especially those made compulsory by Law under the Comptroller of Housing to be used by Licensed Developers under Cap 130.
 
Special conditions agreed between buyers and sellers shall prevail and override these conditions.
 
The 33 conditions covers the following arrangements:
1)   Biddings
2)   Deposit
3)   Documents of Title
4)   Requisitions
5)   Vendor's Power of Recission
6)   Outgoings, Rents and Profits until Completion
7)   Tax
8)   Late Completion Interest
9)   State of Property as to Repair, etc

The 33 Law Society's Condtions of Sale 1994  were launched by the Council of the Law Society on 1 July 1994 and subsequently amended in 1999. Copies of these 33 conditions are available at the Law Society Office. 
 
Though these 33 arrangements (known as The Singapore Law Society's Condtions of Sale 1999 ) are used or quoted as reference in almost all of the Sales and Purchase Agreements in Singapore and meant generally for "public use", particularily in real estate practice, they are hardly available anywhere - not even on the web! Some lawyers claim that these are copy right materials though copies printed by the Law Society here show no indication of it. Anyway, please ask  permission before making copies for distribution use!
