The Housing & Development (Renovation Control) Rules 2006 require flat owners to engage an HDB Registered Renovation Contractor to carry out renovation in the flat.
The following are offences, upon conviction, could lead to a fine up to $5,000 and other penalties:
|Flat owner||Engage a non-HDB Registered Renovation Contractor to carry out the work and/or breach HDB's renovation rules/guidelines. |
|HDB Registered Renovation Contractor||Breach HDB's renovation rules/guidelines|
|Non-HDB Registered Renovation Contractor||Carry out renovation or hold himself out as an HDB Registered Renovation Contractor|
The Housing & Development (Composition of Offences) Rules allow HDB to compound offences committed under the Housing & Development Rules. If the offenders fail to pay the composition sum, they will be prosecuted in Court.
