Complete Property Market Updates of Singapore

Give singles a shot at rejected flats

Filed under: General,HBD Reviews — Propertymarketupdates @ 3:20 am

THE Housing and Development Board (HDB) should be stricter on frivolous applicants for its new flats (’HDB targets frivolous applicants”, last Friday).

The HDB should also allow singles over 35 years of age to apply for flats rejected by successful applicants. Single Singaporeans will probably not be as fussy as the others.

Currently, singles are limited in their choices when buying an HDB flat.

Allowing single Singaporeans the chance to buy rejected flats may also ensure that such flats are not left vacant for years, flats such as those in Jurong West, Punggol and Sengkang.
