Is she a Singapore Citizen above 55 years old? If she is, then it is possible to do so. Otherwise, she will have to wait for 15 months after the sale of EC before she is eligible to purchase a resale HDB of any size. Hope this helps!

I have been in the real estate business since 2009, with more than 14 years of experience serving the Singapore real estate market.

I am very active in the residential segment of Singapore real estate market, having transacted hundreds of deals from HDBs to private condominiums and landed properties in Singapore, and have handled many unique cases in sales and purchases as well as rental deals.

Over the years, I have also established a network reaching out to more than 9,400 expatriates, bringing my market presence to both in and outside of Singapore. This has created an additional exposure when I manage my client's portfolios, on top of the conventional on and offline platforms, where other estate agents are relying on. This has allowed me to consistently convert leads into results.

With an evolving market, where change is the only constant, I have also been investing in upgrading of my knowledge and skills sets to improve myself and meet the demands of current and future market.

Hi,

It depends on the age of the woman. If she's above age 55, then yes, she can purchase a resale HDB flat after selling off the EC. Else, if she's below age 55, she will need to serve a 15-month wait-out period after selling off the EC to be eligible to purchase a resale HDB flat.

However, she may wish to appeal for this, citing financial difficulties in supporting her child. Approval to purchase a resale HDB will be on a case-by-case basis. Do let me know if you need further assistance in this, I will be able to assist.

I am experienced and well-versed in both HDB and private transactions. I will be able to assist you in your property plans. Please get in touch with me for a more in-depth discussion.

Should you need require further assistance in matters relating to property, please contact me at my mobile +65 97 48 63 05. I will be happy to assess and share with you the possibilities for you in the current market.

Thank you.

Testimonial from Satisfied Clients
-- My husband and I wish to commend the sincere attitude and good customer service rendered by
your staff Jenny, who handled the sale of our 5R HDB flat early this year. We have met several
agents but none as genuine as Jenny. Being a seller agent, she took our interest at heart in handling
the sale, unlike other agents who are self-interest. Jenny is punctual and prompt in the whole
dealings and we were convinced that such an agent is hard for find nowadays. Jenny is a
trustworthy, honest, sincere and hardworking agent. We are happy with her service and would
gladly recommend her to our friends in future. Jenny is an asset to Propnex and the organisation
should value her. Thank you Jenny for her efforts--
Mr and Mrs Soo (HDB seller)

--Jenny is very committed and responsive to her clients and she has spent hours updating them and
looking out for great deals and even tailor-made property proposal geared towards their needs. Will
certainly refer her to others and will definitely approach her again in her future--
Nick and Kim (New launch buyer)

--Jenny did a great job helping my wife and I sell our unit. She took active steps to walk our
neighbourhood to understand what she was marketing. During the marketing period, she managed
potential buyers and provided timely updates and recommendations so we could stay on top of the
process. Overall, Jenny was professional and helped us to achieve a positive result which we are very
thankful for--
Aaron ( HDB seller)

--Jenny was very passionate and went the extra miles to help. Thanks to her professional advice and
recommendations, I had finally found my dream home--

Yvonne (New launch buyer)

--Appreciate Jenny's clear and prompt communication style with us and other stakeholders. She was
also patient and client-centered throughout the process of finding a home that met our criteria. As a
first-time home buyer, we appreciate how she went out of her way to explain the process and
answer questions we had--

Hi Mdm,

For your case, you may not be eligible to purchase a resale HDB flat immediately after selling off the EC if you are under the age of 55 years old under the current rules and regulations. There is a wait out period of 15 months after the disposal of a private property before you are eligible to buy a resale flat.

However if you have special reason to proceed with this move, I will recommend that we make an appeal to HDB to waive the waiting period. Please feel free to contact me so that I can understand your situation better so that I can assist you further!

Testimonial from Satisfied Clients
“We have the privilege to work with Nick on our recent house purchase and we are extremely grateful for all the help he rendered to make the purchase a seamless experience!

Nick is attentive to all the requirements we have for our purchase and in the short span of time, he was able to provide us with potential shortlisted units that meet our criteria. (A big lifesaver for family with young kids and limited availability!) When conducting a viewing, Nick is highly proactive as he can be seen taking notes, asking questions, checking the conditions (that we missed or never thought of) and etc.

Overall, Nick remains reactive and portrays professionalism in this entire process. We would definitely recommend him to our friends and family who are looking for their next home/move opportunity.”

Jeannie & Victor (Buyer)

“Nick provides a delightful customer experience from day one when I engage him as my agent to look for a flat of my choice to the completion of the deal. He is competent, resourceful and has a pleasant manner to work with. He is the Agent of my choice in dealing with properties and I would highly recommend him to others who would appreciate an agent that takes care and can give the customer a peaceful mind.”
Susana (Buyer)

“Nick is very pro-active in helping us to resolve whatever questions and problems that we encountered. All the issues are settled even before us having to request or ask for a second time. He was very frank and transparent with all the details, limitations and advantages that we wouldn’t have known. I think this is the most important virtue to be successful in this line. I will surely recommend him to anyone who needs his service because I trust that they will be equally satisfied!!”
Mr and Mrs Chan (Sold and Bought a property through Nick)

“We are very grateful to Nick for his extensive marketing efforts. With his comprehensive marketing plan, he helped us to achieve a record selling price within 2 weeks of listing our property for sale! We highly recommend his service to anyone who is keen to sell their properties.”
Mr & Mrs Wong (Property Seller)

“Nick has conducted himself ethically and professionally when handling the sales of our property. Thanks to his patience and perseverance, we managed to secure a sales price beyond our expectations.
We are very happy and satisfied with his services and will definitely recommend him to our friends and family in the future.”

Yes, a divorced woman with an 18-year-old child can generally buy a 4-room resale HDB flat after selling off her EC, but there's one key factor to consider: her age.

Age Eligibility:

Above 55: If the divorced woman is 55 years old or above, there are no restrictions on the size of the resale HDB flat she can purchase after selling her EC.
Below 55: If she's below 55, she will need to wait 15 months after selling the EC before being eligible to buy any resale HDB flat, regardless of the size (including a 4-room flat).
Reason for the Wait:

This 15-month wait-out period is implemented to ensure a balance between allowing some EC upgraders to return to HDB ownership and prioritizing flats for young families.

Additional Considerations:

Child's Age: The child's age (18 years old in this case) doesn't affect the eligibility for flat size, but they will need to be included in the application as part of the household.
EC Minimum Occupation Period (MOP): Ensure the EC's MOP has been fulfilled before selling it.

Hi,

1) Yes, a divorced woman with an 18-year-old child under full legal custody, care, and control is eligible to buy a resale HDB flat.
2) The only restriction is to meet the 15-month wait-out period after selling the EC.
3) This is because EC is been categorized by the HDB as a private property.
4) You have to wait for 1 year and 3 months before able to get an approved HFE from the HDB before being allowed to buy a resale HDB flat.
5) You may find the type of flat available in this article addressing your situation.
