Hi there, thanks for writing to us on AskGuru.

To be eligible for the temporary extension, the seller must:
- Have committed to buy a completed property (can be another HDB flat or private residential property) in Singapore at the time of the resale application, i.e. exercised an Option To Purchase or signed a Sale and Purchase Agreement
- Not be renting out the whole flat at the time of resale application
- Be the contra party if the transactions are under the Enhanced Contra Facility

1. The seller must have committed to buy a completed property before applying for the Temporary Extension of Stay.

2. Since the seller has not bought a completed property, it is not likely HDB will approve the Temporary Extension of Stay.

3. You can check your My HDBPage if the extension is granted or not.

Hope this answers your question.

Best Regards,

I actually believe that your representing agent will be able to answer these questions, if not the seller's agent will be able to answer these questions, unless both parties are unrepresented.

This is just 1 of the incident where the agents always say, if you have engaged the services of us, we will be able to take care of such issues for you.

In such a scenario above, apart from conforming to the regulations applicable in the form of extension requirement, if you are ready to extend this extension agreement to the seller in the first place, if seller does not proceed to purchase another HDB to qualify for this extension, are you still agreeable to proceed with this extension if seller is ready to move out at the end of this 3 months extension?

Rules are rules, however, if we do not understand the circumstances on ground, it will be difficult for us to make a right decision. I'd really suggest you to speak to the sellers or their representative directly to find out about the situation and make a judgement call on what you should do after knowing the situation and listening to the various opinions here.

I have been in the real estate business since 2009, with more than 10years 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.
