Hi Sharon, thanks for writing to us on AskGuru.

If you are divorced, you will have to wait for the outcome of your final judgement from the court before you can buy an HDB flat.

You can either buy a resale or Built-To-Order (BTO) HDB flat under the Public Scheme as long as there is a Singapore Citizen in your flat application with a child under your custody, care and control.

If you are buying solely under your name, you can apply under the Single Singapore Citizen Scheme.

There is also one Priority Scheme that you may qualify called the Assistance Scheme for Second-Timers (Divorced/ Widowed Parents) (ASSIST) where a portion of 2- and 3-room BTO flats is set aside in non-mature estates for divorced/ widowed parents with children aged 18 and below.

Hope this answers your question.

Best Regards,

Good morning,

I am assuming that you are looking to purchase a resale HDB.

Have you apply for loan assessment (HLE or IPA) yet?

Once we work out the budget based on your loan assessment and CPF OA funds on hand, you will have a better idea whats your affordability and choices in the resale market.

Hope my sharing helps in aiding in your enquiry. May I know how can I value add further in your property needs?

Best regards,

YT Tan

Hi Ms Ling
I have assisted various clients with desperate housing needs to secure a resale. I understand with the rising prices of HDB resale, it can be a very challenging experience for those looking for a resale. In order to advise further, I need to know more on your situation and circumstances. Do contact me at 93375051 for a free and non obligatory discussion on this
