1. Void area counted and priced into sale price... this is a norm.
If the couple is contesting this... case close.

2. CDL and agent conceal/mis-lead the couple on the size of unit before OTP was exercised.
This one will depends on how the marketing materials are worded and also the agent words against what the
couple heard.
My instinct tells me that unless the developer/agent is sloppy, otherwise this is a easy case for CDL.

Exactly!
In this case, CDL would spotted its mistake and paid up already.

This has a huge implication for a lot of small projects. Eg small projects penthouses (eg telok kurau area) where the roof area is non strata area, but buyers still have to pay for it.

Anyone with views on this?

Classified as common area , under MCST.

Thats like HK and PRC. Developers there make you pay for common area.

Qn: In SG, If penthouse rooftop area is considered common area by MCST, then how MSCT segregate the area?
Can other owners go to MCST to say they want to BBQ at penthouse owner rooftop since it is common area? haha..

Though those are common area, only the penthouse owner can use?

Some development called those area "double volume", and is part of the floor area in the marketing brochure. And yes, owner have to pay extra for the air space. But the developer get it free.

There is no void in the floor plan. However, the living room is having a high ceiling. So, this area will need to double count to get 161sqm?

Wonder if it is allowable to build an upper floor above the living room just like a SOHO unit.

Do such penthouse usually build the access to the open terrace through the kitchen? Seems a funny design to me...

NTL,
yes, it's ok to double count.
Although a particular developer choose not to double count but charge a higher per Sq FT price.
In fact, it broke the historical highest psf.
