Legal Matters Concerning Property

Divorce Case (Retaining Flat Ownership)

Source: HDB

Under the HDB’s prevailing policy for divorce (not due to non-consummation of marriage or annulment or break-up of Fiancé / Fiancée relationship), a divorced party who has the custody of the child (including care and control) is allowed to retain the flat subject to the eligibility conditions.
If there are no children from the marriage, the divorced party (flat owner) may retain the flat under the Single Singapore Citizen (SSC) Scheme, provided:

 

  • he / she is a Singapore citizen
  • he / she is at least 35 years old
  • the matrimonial flat must be a resale flat purchased from the open market without the CPF Housing Grant for Family.

If the matrimonial flat is bought directly from HDB (including resale flats bought with the CPF Housing Grant for Family), the 5-year minimum occupation period (MOP) must be satisfied before the divorced party is allowed to take over the flat under the SSC Scheme. Click here for more…

Bankruptcy

Under the Housing & Development Act, so long as one of the flat owners of the HDB flat is a Singapore Citizen, the HDB flat (of any type) will not vest in the Official Assignee (“OA”) in the event of bankruptcy of any or all of the flat owners; that is, the flat owners would not be compelled to dispose of their flat. However, notwithstanding the above, if the purchase of the flat has been financed with a mortgage loan from a bank or the HDB, then the flat may be sold by the bank through a mortgagee sale, or compulsorily acquired by the HDB in the event the owners default in the mortgage repayment and run up mortgage arrears.
The Official Assignee’s consent is not required if a bankrupt flat owner wishes to sell his or her HDB flat which does not vest in the Official Assignee. This applies to bankrupt flat owners who belong to Singapore Citizen households. Click for more details.
