Hi Ms. Low,

If you are SC and HDB is more than 5 years, yes you can stay in one and rent out either hdb or condo, not an issue.

Thanks and may I understand your housing plans further so to make better recommendations? Look forward to hear from you.

Good evening Lilian,

The minimum occupation period has been met already and as long as your household has one Singaporean, you can rent and stay in either one.

Hi Lilian,

The minimum occupation period of a HDB is 5 years from the date of purchase. Once you have fulfil these 5 years, you may rent out the unit completely. It will make more financial sense for you to rent out the whole unit instead of doing room rental in the long run. Renting out the whole unit is also more hassle free for you.

You may choose to stay in the condo or HDB and rent out the other property as there is no restrictions. Please feel free to contact me so that I can understand your situation better and provide you with further assistance.

Hi Ms Low,

Yes, you'd be able to do that as long as the HDB flat has at least one Singaporean Citizen owner. Renting out the entire unit would be less troublesome for the long-run, or if you are exploring the option of selling, I could help you with the current market analysis.

For a quick one, you can log on to http://propertytracker.sophia-ng.com and you're just a few clicks away from the latest rental value and sale value of your properties.

All in all, I'm sure I'd be able to assist you regardless what your option may be, so contact me anytime! :)
