Good afternoon Eric,

You have to seek approval to rent out the whole unit from your HDB branch office before you can do so.

It will be based on a case by case basis.

Do take note that an owner must physically stay in a flat and fulfil the minimum occupation period of 5 years before you can rent out the whole unit.

If you are worried about the appeal, probably you should consider private property as an alternative.

Hope my explanation helps!

If you need any assistance or advice in your property purchase, feel free to contact me. Cheers!

Warmest Regards,

Hi Mr. Lee,

For subletting of whole units within MOP, you need to apply to appeal to HDB for approval. Approval will be on a case by case basis. Thanks and may I assist with your housing plans further?

Warm Regards,

Hi Eric, I have encountered such a case like this. As this is a very P&C matter of another client, I will not reveal the details here. But I must just tell you, you may not rent out your HDB, and you will be required to stay in the HDB during your 5 year MOP period.

If you want more details, why it is not permitted, you can whatsapp me at 82884499
