Hi there, thanks for writing to us on AskGuru.

Under the Conversion Scheme, a single Singapore Citizen who is above 35-years-old can buy 2 adjoining 3-room or smaller flats or 3-room or smaller flat that adjoins your currently owned 3-room or smaller flat.

Hope this answers your question.

Best Regards,

-- EC Sellers, Private Property Buyers Dr. Chan & Ms. Xie --

I would like to compliment Mr Ivan Ng for his professional work and effort.I sent my first post in Jan 2019 and Ivan replied promptly, so I have decided to contact Ivan for follow up. My EC was not ready for sale due to MOP (another 3 months from Jan) at that time and Ivan was able to give me advices on how to proceed from there. Initially we have decided to try to write to HDB for early sale but since it was only 3 months left, eventually we waited for another 3 months while we looked for our next property. Ivan was able to arrange for new property showroom appointment at a timely manner while helping us to list for our EC for sale. We were a bit worried when our EC sale time was longer than expected due to trade war, but Ivan was able to reassure us that our EC would sell. By November, he managed to secure a buyer for our EC. Thank you.

Ivan is not a pushy and hard sales agent. Ivan listens and understands our needs and carefully guided us through. We are fortunate to have Ivan as our agent. Thank you Ivan.

Hi,

Yes, you are open to buying a jumbo flat from the open market.

1) Jumbo flat is a single unit with a single address. Thus considered as a single unit.

2) Under Single Singapore Citizen Scheme, there are nowhere under HDB policy states there are limitations on the type of resale flat a single can't buy.

3) The only restriction is you might not be able to receive any grant to any flat type bigger than 5-rm. Although under "Conversion Scheme" states single grant and proximity grant is open to conversion scheme.
However, when you read carefully under Eligibility, the scheme only illustrates 2 scenarios:
(a) Buy 2 adjoining...flats, meaning buy 2 at the same time.
(b) Buy 3-room or smaller...adjoins your currently owned 3-room..., implied buy your neighbor unit.
None of the above applies to buying a single Jumbo flat. Thus has to follow the rules listed under grant eligibility that only 5-rm and smaller flat is eligible to grant.

Hi

Yes you are eligible to purchase a Jumbo as a single although you might not be eligible for any grants assuming you are a first timer nor eligible for HDB loan. I am specialised in HDB transactions. Do contact me at 93375051 for a free and non obligatory discussion om this.
