I am a first time house buyer. Recently after obtaining the SPA I proceed to change the ownership title of the property from the Management and also to apply for the various access cards (car park, lift access, etc). The Management wanted me to settle the maintenance fees of two months first (commencing from the date after I signed the SPA) before allowing me to do so and I agreed.

When my lawyer found out, the clerk contacted me and said this is a serious matter and proceeded to question why I did what I did. I explained that I just wanted to settle those things sooner so that when I get the key I am able to just move in ASAP. The clerk doesn't seem to trust me.

Roughly a month later the Seller managed to approach me (via a friend) and threatened to not sell the property to me because of what I did and stated that "a lawyer letter will be issued" to the property's Management.

I would like to know how serious this matter is? Should it still be any of the Seller's business regarding what I do since I've already obtained the SPA copy signed by both parties?

Any reply will be much appreciated.

Yes, of course it is the seller business because it is his house.
The SPA already stated that it is his house until handover.
If I were the seller, I will also cancel the SPA.

Whether you like it or not... the Property is NOT YOURS YET even though S&P is Signed... you have to wait until the Seller receives Full Payment of his property from you or your Financier... then a proper handover of the property to you will follow... you need patience and don't do things in a rush...!!
