As a tenant of a Parenthood Provisional Housing Scheme (PPHS) flat, you are required to abide by the terms and conditions stated in the tenancy agreement. You should take note of these for your stay in the PPHS flat.
If you would like to carry out minor renovation works in your flat (such as the installation of window grilles), please submit your request to the HDB Branch managing your flat before starting renovation works.
You will also have to comply with the guidelines and general conditions of the installation of air-conditioning in your PPHS flat. Call our toll-free branch service line at 1800-225-5432 to check your block’s electrical loading. If required, please apply for an HDB permit to install new 15Amps power points.
Cancellation of sales application
The PPHS provides an affordable temporary housing arrangement for eligible households who are waiting for the completion of their home ownership flats. If your homeownership flat sales application is cancelled, you will have to terminate the tenancy within 1 month of the cancellation date.
Change of tenancy
The PPHS tenancy is dependent on the household listed in the homeownership flat sales application. However, we can consider a change of tenancy due to unforeseen circumstances such as the death of a tenant or a change in family structure from a divorce. Only the party who is allowed to retain the homeownership flat sales application will be allowed to take over the tenancy.
Transfer to another PPHS flat
As a tenant of the PPHS flat, you will not be allowed to transfer to another flat.
Withdrawal of sharing household
If a household that co-shares the PPHS flat moves out, the remaining household will have to take over the entire flat until an eligible replacement is found. The rental deposit will only be refunded at the point of tenancy termination, after the vacant PPHS flat is returned to us.
Termination of tenancy
You can return the keys to the HDB Branch managing your flat to terminate the tenancy of your PPHS flat. You will have to ensure that the flat:
- Is cleared of occupants and belongings
- Has all the utilities discontinued
- Is reinstated to its original condition
