About 1,700 Flats Surrendered To HDB In Last 5 Years, Says MND
Approximately 1,700 public housing were given up to the Housing and Development Board in the prior 5 years, expressed SM of MND Sim Ann in Parliament on 2 Mar.
Coming from the numbers, roughly one-half were two room public housing, 1 out of six were three room units, and also 1/3 were 4 room as well as much bigger flats, Sim Ann stated.
Sim put together the announcement in action to MP Gan Thiam Poh’s question on the amount of HDB units re-selled to Housing and Development Board, the reason the flats were re-selled and if HDB may look at extending these units on its public booking procedure.
Sim documented that roughly 1,000 of the surrendered public housing were on short hire and also makes up studio apartments, 2 room Flexi units acquired during a quick hire in addition to flats whose property owners chose LBS.
” Owners of quick hire flats who no more liked to keep their flats or who had actually ended up being unequipped to accomplish so, are obliged to submit their public housing to Housing and Development Board. These individuals are not even allowed to sell these units on the open market,” she stated.
The other 7hundred flats get surrendered mostly due to modifications in the situations of the proprietors in their MOP. These kinds of owners were not at all approved to offer their HDB flats on the market as these people had certainly not fulfilled their MOP.
” Some of the most common factors for cessation of flats were divorce, separation of fiancé-fiancée couples, and also annulment of matrimony,” shared Sim
Housing and Development Board compensates owners of surrendered flats and resells these units via the Sale of Balance Flat activities.
“If the public housing remain unselected after the SBF exercise, they may subsequently be made available under open reservation,” further mentioned Sim.
