Submission of Resale Application
 

All resale applications will have to be submitted online either via the Estate Agent Toolkit or the e-Resale system. Buyers and sellers (or their salesperson) will also have to submit their respective portions of the resale application separately.

Either the buyer or the seller may submit his portion of the resale application first. Once the first party has submitted his portion, the second party will have to do so within 7 days. If not, the submission by the first party will lapse and they have to re-start the process.

A resale application is deemed complete only when HDB receives both portions of the resale application. The second party can then book the First Appointment.

Upon receiving the complete set of resale application, HDB will assess the buyer's eligibility to buy and the seller's eligibility to sell the flat as at the date of submission by the second party.

Buyer and seller should ensure that they meet all the prevailing eligibility conditions and resale requirements on the date the second party submits his portion of the resale application.

How to submit resale application?


You can submit your application either using the Estate Agent Toolkit or the e-Resale system.

- Only for salespersons from estate agents that have signed up for the Estate Agent Toolkit, to submit applications on behalf of their clients (buyers or sellers).

- For DIY buyers or DIY sellers (those who have not engaged the services of a salesperson).
- For salespersons to submit applications on behalf of their clients (buyers or sellers).

The buyer's and the seller's portions of the resale application need not be submitted using the same system.

Important Note
  • As a seller, if your spouse is not a co-owner/occupier of the flat, your spouse needs to endorse the Resale Application Form, since your spouse is an integral part of the family nucleus.
  • Your spouse must attend the first appointment and sign the Spouse Consent To Resale form in the presence of our Resale Officer.
  • If your spouse is not in Singapore or residing overseas, we will require your spouse to sign this form in the presence of a Notary Public.

When must the resale application be submitted?


Buyer and seller (or their salespersons) can proceed to submit the resale application after the buyer has exercised the Option to Purchase (OTP).

There are two timeframe requirements that buyer and seller need to observe when they submit their application.

(i) 7-day timeframe for second party to submit his portion of the application

Either the buyer or the seller can submit his portion of the resale application first. The second party must submit his portion within 7 days after the first party has done so. If not, the submission by the first party will lapse and they have to re-start the process.

(ii) Clause 11 of the Option to Purchase

Under Clause 11 of the OTP, the buyers and the sellers will agree on the timeframe to submit their resale application as shown below:-

Clause 11 of Terms and Condition for Sale and Purchase:
The Seller and Buyer will within ________ calendar days from the date of exercise of this Option, jointly apply to the HDB for its approval for the sale and purchase of the Flat.

This is a contractual agreement between the buyer and the seller. The time frame can be extended with mutual consent.

Who has to submit the resale application?


Buyers and sellers will have to submit their respective portions of the resale application. If they have engaged the services of a salesperson, the salesperson may submit the application on their behalf.

What are the information and documents to be provided and the payment involved?

In the application, you will have to provide information relating to their sale of your flat as well as your personal particulars.

You will have to provide the serial number of the Resale Checklist you have earlier submitted.

Booking of First Appointment


The second party who submit his portion of the resale application can book the First Appointment. The appointment date must be mutually agreed upon by both parties as stated in the resale application.

Buyers and sellers may refer to the Enquiry on Available Dates for Resale First Appointment e-Service to check on the available dates and time slots. They are advised to discuss and agree on the appointment date before making the submission.

Subsequent changing of the first appointment can be done online via buyers' or sellers' MyHDBPage (with consent of both parties). Buyers and sellers can change the first appointment only after they have received the First Appointment letter from HDB.

Once the first party has submitted his portion of the application, both parties will be notified via their MyHDBPage.

Both parties can monitor the application status and view the date booked for the First Appointment.
