I assume you are talking about buying a new EC. If that is the case, you must have a family nucleus.

She may need to remove her name in the HDB flat.

It will be good if you can write to gavin.ng@orangetee.com for further information.

Dear Sir/Mdm!

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

You will not be able to purchase the EC unit directly under your name alone. As your wife name is already under andother HDB flat, she will also not be able to own the EC unit.

Will you be looking at getting a private property instead. All the above problems will not be valid if it is a private unit instead of EC. As for private real estate, you will be able to own it under your own name.

Allow us to arrange for an appointment for me to share with me other options that you might have. There are also many private developments that are currently priced very attractively for your consideration.

Hear from you soon.

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

I assume you are referring to new EC and there is a SC in the application. If so, she has to remove her name from the flat ownership and apply with you for the new EC and form the family nucleus. They may not need to sell the hdb if the parents finances are equipped enough to take over the ownership of the hdb.

I have assisted clients on similar cases. 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! :)

You and your wife must be the applicant for the EC.
Thus her name has to be withdraw from the current flat.
You may approach HDB 1st floor to get this done. All owners of current flat must be present for this.

Pls note that latest EC, Rivercove has only left with 20% available. Do act soon so as not to miss this.

The next and final EC is expected to be at least 20%~25% more expensive than this.

Hope the above answer to your main concerns, but if there are more queries, please feel free to contact me at 90110636, or email: ling.ck7@gmail.com if more information is needed.
I'll be glad to assist.

Hi Sir,

In order to qualify to purchase a new EC, you will have to be joint-applicant together with your wife.

Latest 6 months upon the TOP of the EC, she has to remove her name from the HDB flat. There is no need to sell the HDB flat if her parents can settle the finance part, i.e refund to her the CPF+Accrued interest that she paid towards the HDB flat.

Should you need any further assistance in matters relating to property, please contact me at my mobile 9748 6305. I will be happy to assess and share with you the possibilities for you and your partner in the current market.

Thank you.

Best regards,
