Appointment at HDB
Appointment with HDB
With the streamlined resale process, buyers and sellers are required to attend only 1 resale appointment at HDB. You will need to be present for the resale completion appointment if you have engaged HDB solicitor to act for you. If you have engaged your private solicitors to act for you, your solicitor representative will attend the resale completion appointment on your behalf.
Flat inspection by HDB Branch
After buyers and sellers have submitted their resale application, HDB will arrange for Technical Executives from the HDB Branch to inspect your flat.
The purpose of the inspection is to check if there are unauthorised renovation works in the flat that may damage HDB property and affect the structural stability of the flats/ building. The inspection is not to ascertain the value of the flat, the condition and safety of the renovation works, or compliance with any legislation in respect of any installation of fittings/ fixtures in the flat.
You will be informed of the inspection date in the letter of HDB’s acceptance of the resale application.
Resale Completion Appointment
The resale completion date is tentatively scheduled as 8 weeks from the date of HDB’s acceptance of the resale application, and indicated in the letter of HDB’s acceptance of the resale application. We will notify you (via SMS) on the actual date and time of your resale completion appointment once the resale completion is scheduled. You can also check the completion date and time from the HDB Resale Portal.
Legal documents which require “wet ink” signature will be signed by the buyers and sellers at the completion appointment at HDB Hub. If you are unable to attend the resale completion appointment, you contact your Customer Relations Manager (CRM), who will advise you accordingly. Details of your CRM can be found on the HDB Resale Portal.
Temporary Extension of Stay for sellers
After the sale of the resale flat is legally completed, you have to move out of the flat. If you are unable to do so immediately, you can arrange with the flat buyers to extend your stay temporarily in the flat, for a period of up to 3 months after the legal completion.
If you would like to apply for the temporary extension of stay, you must seek your buyer’s agreement and indicate your request when you submit your resale application.
