Hi there, thanks for writing to us on AskGuru.

You may browse our listings and connect directly with agents who may have such units that suit your budget and requirements:: https://www.propertyguru.com.sg/singapore-property-listing/hdb

Do note there are strict HDB rules and regulations that you must adhere to when renting a flat. You must register your particulars with HDB. The minimum rental period for each tenant must be 6 months per application.

Persons who wish to rent HDB flats must be any of the following:
- Singapore Citizens
- Singapore Permanent Residents
- Non-citizens legally residing in Singapore who are holders of Employment Passes, S Passes, Work Permits, Student Passes, Dependant Passes, or Long-Term Social Visit Passes. These passes must have a validity period of at least 6 months as at the date of your application
- Work Permit holders from the construction, manufacturing, marine, and process sectors must be Malaysians
- Tourists are not allowed as tenants of HDB flats

Do note, the maximum number of tenants for a 1-room and 2-room flat is 4 and for a 3-room and bigger flat is 6.

A landlord is required to check original NRIC or FINS of the tenants and occupiers for forgery and make copies. check photographs on NRICs or FINS against the actual persons to confirm identity and verify the validity of the passes with MOM database and/or ICA database. As an added due diligence, they may also ask for letter of employment from employer. This is to deter illegal immigrants or vice activities. This is required by the Council of Estate Agencies for compliance with the Immigration and Women's Charter.

Hope this answers your question.

Best Regards,
