Hi Zubair Arfan, thanks for writing to us on AskGuru.

HDB flats built between 1974 and 1989 will have a remaining lease of 52 years and 67 years respectively.

HDB flats with a remaining lease of less than 60 years will be subjected to a pro-rated CPF usage. This will limit the pool of buyers should you wish to resell your HDB flat later.

Hope this answers your question.

Best Regards,
