But first, let’s take a step back and understand HDB MOP rules.

What is HDB MOP?

The MOP is when you must physically live in your flat after collecting your keys. During the HDB MOP, you cannot sell the flat or rent out the entire unit. But you can rent out your spare rooms. For BTO flats and HDB resale flats bought from the open market, the MOP is usually five years; for upcoming Plus and Prime BTO flats, the HDB MOP is 10 years.
Typically, those who sell their freshly MOP-ed HDB flat on the open market can fetch a sum considerably higher than what they bought their homes for.

The HDB Flat Portal provides information on the purchase or sale of a flat, allowing you to make an informed decision before purchasing. The HDB Flat Portal is updated daily, and you can refine your search based on the HDB town, flat type, or resale registration date.
You can also use the HDB Map Services to see the exact lease start date of the HDB flat.

Financing Your HDB Flat Purchase

Once you decide which freshly MOP-ed HDB resale flat, financing your HDB flat purchase is the next step. You can choose between an HDB loan or a bank loan.
The process of applying for an HDB-granted loan is relatively straightforward. There is only one loan to choose from, and the interest rate is pegged at 0.10% above the current CPF OA interest rate; the current interest rate is 2.6% and has not changed since 1999.
But bank loans are a little more complicated. You have to cross-compare and choose a home loan package from various major banks in Singapore. Several loan types – fixed, floating or hybrid mortgage packages – each with different lock-in periods. You can use our home loan comparison tool to browse the mortgage packages available.

The MOP is calculated from the date the homeowners collect the keys to their flat. This excludes any period where they do not occupy the flat, such as when the whole flat is rented out or when there has been an infringement of the flat lease

Yes you can. You must be at least 35 years of age and a Singapore Citizen. However, do note that there are different requirements for BTO flats released under the Prime Location Public Housing (PLH) model.
