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 offences, on conviction, can lead to a fine of 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.
