Hi there, thanks for writing to us on AskGuru.

Blk 356A Admiralty Drive is a 22-year-old HDB flat.

Under the principle of caveat emptor, the buyer alone is responsible for checking the quality and suitability of goods before a purchase is made.

As a buyer, you must check, investigate and ask questions on the property, before you buy, failing which you must bear the risks and consequences of the purchase. You buy the property on “as is where is” basis.

Therefore, if you did not do due diligence before buying, then you could not recover damages from the seller for defects on the property.

Hope this answers your question.

Best Regards,

1) The commencement of HIP does not solely depend on the age of the flat.
2) The older aging flats will have higher priority to the newer ones.
3) There is an HDB annual budget of each estate, the constituency in each financial year to consider.
4) The RC of that constituency also needs to put up to the HDB for the HIP.
5) After the (2) & (3), there will be voting for all owners in the constituency and this will need at or more than 75% votes to go ahead.
6) After successful voting to go ahead, you have to wait at least another 2~3 yrs before this will materialize.
7) The blocks you are referring to still have no plan announced from the HDB yet.

Hope the above answer to your main concerns, but if there are more query, please feel free to contact me at 90110636, or email: ling.ck7@gmail.com if more information is needed.
I'll be glad to assist.

Best regards
