Hi HanSiong, thanks for writing to us on AskGuru.

You are not eligible to apply for a flat from HDB. However, you may buy a resale flat from the open market but without the CPF Housing Grant. You may be eligible for the Proximity Housing Grant of $30,000 if you live together with your parents. You may be eligible for the Proximity Housing Grant of $20,000 if you live near to your parents.

If you buy a resale flat, you will have to dispose of your interest in the private residential property within six months of the flat purchase.

Hope this answers your question.

Best Regards,

Hi Han Siong,

As overseas property are also considered a form of private property, you will need to appeal to the authorities for the housing grant and they will review on a case by case basis. Similarly to application for BTO flats application, there is a sit out period of 30 months before home buyers who have previously disposed off a private property will need to observe before being eligible.

Housing grants are also subjected to household income and other eligibility criteria, on top of the ownership of private property.

I have been in the real estate business since 2009, with more than 10years of experience serving the Singapore real estate market.

I am very active in the residential segment of Singapore real estate market, having transacted hundreds of deals from HDBs to private condominiums and landed properties in Singapore, and have handled many unique cases in sales and purchases as well as rental deals.

Over the years, I have also established a network reaching out to more than 9,400 expatriates, bringing my market presence to both in and outside of Singapore. This has created an additional exposure when I manage my client's portfolios, on top of the conventional on and offline platforms, where other estate agents are relying on. This has allowed me to consistently convert leads into results.

With an evolving market, where change is the only constant, I have also been investing in upgrading of my knowledge and skills sets to improve myself and meet the demands of current and future market.

Hi Sir
Yes you are right. According to the regulations, you are only eligible for first time grant 30 months after disposingg your overseas properties. However you can submit an appeal on it as HDB is known to give lenient discretion in extraordinary cases. I have encountered HDB approving appeal even when the buyer did not dispose off their overseas properties. Do contact me at 93375051 for a non obligatory discussions on thia.
