Hi Ms Jo Chong, thanks for writing to us on AskGuru.

No, you can buy a resale HDB flat with your grandparents. HDB's rules state that you must form a family nucleus with 1 of the following groups.

Spouse and children
Parents and siblings (if you are a single SPR buying with parents, at least one of your parents must be an SC or SPR)
Children under your legal custody, care and control (for widowed/ divorced persons)

You can refer to HDB's link here: https://www.hdb.gov.sg/cs/infoweb/residential/buying-a-flat/resale/eligibility

You may wish to wait till you are 35-years-old under the Singapore Single Citizen Scheme instead.

Hope this answers your question.

Best Regards,

Hi Jo, I'm sorry you can't purchase a resale hdb with your grandparents. You could purchase with either your fiancé or as a single when you hit 35 years old.

Hello Ms Jo!

Good day to you!
I’m Daniel Tan from Huttons.

As explained by Aaron, you are only eligible to puchase a HDB with your spouse/fiance now or under the single / joint single scheme when you reached age 35.

Will you be open to purchase of private apartments where there are lesser restrictions as compared to the HDB?

Please do share with me some of your requirements and expectations so as to better assist you.

Any other queries?
Please always feel free to contact me for a non-obligated discussion on how I can assist you with your real estate needs.

Have a great day ahead.

Best Regards
