I am a Singapore Citizen. My grandparents added my name to their HDB flat 3 years ago. I am now one of the owner of the HDB flat. The HDB is 15 years old and is fully paid for. If I wish to buy a private property now, do I need to wait another 2 years to fulfill the MOP?
It is recommended you check with the hdb branch office the flat falls under as they have all the information to advise you. From the looks of it, it does look like you need to fulfil MOP 5 years before you can purchase.
May I have more info and requirements about your plans so to make better recommendations? Thanks and look forward to value-add to your housing plans.

-- HDB BTO 4rm Sellers Mr. Farvin & Ms. Sel --
Ivan was the first agent that we met up with and right from the offset we had good vibes as he has a friendly personal approach, detailed working style and focuses on building the long-term relationship.
Our unit comes with its challenges but Ivan remained positive and had no qualms committing to our plans right from the start. It took only 6 weeks of aggressive marketing for him to secure a good offer which was a pleasant surprise in the end.
Ivan was always responsive and we had no worries to pass him the house keys. The whole process was transparent and hassle free, and he was always thinking from our point of view on how to make life easier for the client. He is a committed professional and has fast execution, so we felt assured that things are done well and we can entrust the sale process entirely to him.
--- HDB Flat Upgraders Mr. & Mrs. Lee ---
We decided to engage Ivan as our agent as we were impressed with how he answered the enquiries on property guru website.
He has helped us to find our ideal unit and also sold our current unit. He was very patient and never pushy when we were looking for our ideal unit. He would tell us that it is always important to find a unit that we really liked.
When it comes to selling of our unit, he was always prompt in arranging for viewings and he also tried his best to arrange and consolidate the viewings due to our time constraints. He is a reliable and prompt agent and is always willing to clarify any concerns and questions that we have.
Thanks Ivan! :) Read More
You may wish to contact the HDB branch office to check on the requirement to fulfill the MOP status. Even if there is a need, you may apply to HDB to waive the requirement if there is a valid and strong reason.
I have assisted my clients to seek the waiver of MOP successfully before. Please feel free to contact me so that I can understand your situation better and provide you with further assistance!

Because my grandparents wanted me to inherit their HDB, so they added my name. My grandfather has since passed away last year while grandmother stays in the HDB.
None of my CPF was used to finance the HDB, it has been fully paid since 10 years by my grandparents. So since I am an owner of the hdb I cannot purchase another hdb and therefore thinking of buying a private property for investment.
