Conditions for the Engagement of the Contractors

aThe list of repair contractors serves as a guide for flat owners who need help to engage a contractor. It is not meant to be exhaustive or an endorsement of the contractor’s performance. Flat owners may wish to consult other sources such as the Yellow Pages and check for other contractors or service providers.

bFlat owners who wish to engage any of the repair contractors from the list will have to negotiate the price and extent of the work with the contractors on a private basis. HDB is not privy to this private engagement.

cFlat owners are to ensure that the contractors they engage exercise due care and diligence when carrying out the necessary repair work.

dThe rates quoted for the items listed in the above Tables are only for services provided during office hours, ie from 8.30 am to 5.00 pm on weekdays, and from 8.30 am to 1.00 pm on Saturdays. If flat owners require these services during Sundays, public holidays or after office hours, they can negotiate the rates with the contractor on a private basis. However, the rates are expected to be higher than those listed in the Tables.

eThe rates quoted are inclusive of transportation charge and GST. The repair contractors have indicated that they will provide a 6-month warranty period for works involving installation of new parts/products/materials.

fIn the event that the flat owners decide not to carry out the repair work after the contractor has attended to a site inspection [at the owners' request], they are required to pay a transportation fee of $10 to the contractor if the inspection is carried out during office hours. Flat owners are advised to negotiate with the contractors on the amount of transportation charges they will have to pay for inspections carried out after office hours.

gPayment has to be made directly to the contractor upon completion of the work. Flat owners are advised to check the work before making payment. Upon payment, the contractor will issue an official receipt.

hAll services rendered and payments made are strictly viewed as private arrangements between the flat owners and the contractors. HDB assumes no responsibility or liability for the workmanship, materials replaced or any other unsatisfactory service by the contractor.

iThe rates, contractors and transportation charge listed here are subject to change without prior notice. The latest information can be found on the HDB InfoWeb.
