HI,

Regardless resale flat or BTO, all buyers will need to fulfil the Minimum Occupation Period of 5 years which during this period, owners are not allowed to rent out the whole house. Rental of rooms are allowed and current owner must also be residing in the house.

Do note that if anyone suggests to you that you can lock up one room and rent out the whole unit, this suggestion is actually against HDB rules. HDB do conduct checks on houses and sometimes complains from neighbours will also attract checks from HDB.

Hope this answers your question. Cheers!

Best Regards,

Hi,

Unfortunately no, you need to met the Minimum Occupation Period of 5 years before you can rent out the HDB. There is no such ruling for private property.

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.

Warm Regards,

-- EC Sellers, Private Property Buyers Dr. Chan & Ms. Xie --

I would like to compliment Mr Ivan Ng for his professional work and effort.I sent my first post in Jan 2019 and Ivan replied promptly, so I have decided to contact Ivan for follow up. My EC was not ready for sale due to MOP (another 3 months from Jan) at that time and Ivan was able to give me advices on how to proceed from there. Initially we have decided to try to write to HDB for early sale but since it was only 3 months left, eventually we waited for another 3 months while we looked for our next property. Ivan was able to arrange for new property showroom appointment at a timely manner while helping us to list for our EC for sale. We were a bit worried when our EC sale time was longer than expected due to trade war, but Ivan was able to reassure us that our EC would sell. By November, he managed to secure a buyer for our EC. Thank you.

I would like to express my appreciation to Ivan Ng for his excellent work. Ivan is a dedicated, client-focused, patient and sincere agent. Throughout the whole process of selling and looking for our next property, he has always acted very professionally that makes my wife and I feel at ease and assured. Ivan is not a pushy and hard sales agent. Ivan listens and understands our needs and carefully guided us through. We are fortunate to have Ivan as our agent. Thank you Ivan. Read More
