Ah Gong says,
"Non-owner occupied residential properties may be condominiums, HDB flats or other residential properties. The owner does not live in ("occupy") the property and, therefore, owner-occupier tax rates do not apply."

Ah Gong doesn't care whether you rent it out, keep it as storage or otherwise.

Correct. I confirm that is true, because I received the letter about higher property tax rate once I moved out + changed my address.

After moving out then I had time to clean up the place and get the agent to advertise and arrange viewings. The flat was vacant for ~6 months before we even found a tenant. Higher property tax still applies.

The tax which does not apply until a tenant moves in is the income tax - a completely separate tax.
