Hi, are you listed as an essential occupier? Meaning, if without your name in the property, is your parent still eligible for the purchase of the unit? If you are, you will not be able to rent a private property.

Hi, hopefully you managed to get your doubt or query answered. If so, then congrats! Hopefully you are doing well now.

    Hi, since you are not an essential occupier, your name as occupier does not have any impact on the property or HDB, you can just ask your parents to remove your name online by logging into HDB via singpass and do so. Essentially it is optional for your name to be included in the list and can be done without. It is simply put there to show you are staying in the unit.

    oh.... it disappeared somehow. must have misclicked. i shall type again:

    Hi. Thanks for your reply.

    i have told my parents to put me as Occupier. not Co-owner. not Essential Occupier. just Occupier.

    Since i am not affected by MOP as an Occupier and i can rent a studio unit at a condominium, do i need to update the form and/or HDB to exclude my name (as Occupier) from the HDB flat before i rent? And then after my 1 year rent, when i shift into the HDB flat, i have to update them again to include my name (as Occupier)?

    i told my parents to not put me as Co-owner or Essential Occupier. just Occupier. since as an Occupier (not Essential Occupier) i am not affected by MOP and lets say i do plan to rent a studio unit at a condominium before moving into the HDB, do i need to update the form and/or HDB to first exclude me as an Occupier? And then after my 1 year rent is over, when i move into the HDB flat, i update them again to include me as an Occupier? do i need to update them both times?
As long as you are not listed as an essential occupier, you need not observe the MOP. If you are, then you will be required to do so. By being listed as essential occupier, it means that 1 of your parent require your name to be in the household in order for him or her to purchase the resale HDB, otherwise they will not be able to do so.

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.
