yeah yr friend need to verify what did the court ruling said and what actually can be done. It is better to make a trip to Toa Payoh Hub , get a Q no and talk to the customer service officer.
Actually handling the buy sell procedure of a HDB flat is not difficult as it is so regulated by HDB. The agent is more useful for the marketing of the flat to find a buyer. Remember you need to pay 2% + GST of selling price as a seller for his commission. That is a few thousands dollars even for a 3room flat.
Thanks for all the responses!
He has (or actually I did... on his behalf) written a letter of appeal to HDB, requesting for HDB's permission to buy over his ex-wife's share of the flat, instead of him having to sell, buy, and then move, incurring unnecessary and heavy costs along the way.Originally Posted by megaweb
They replied that this deal is agreeable with them, provided all the necessary paperwork (OTP, bank credit letter, etc) is done.
Yes will bring him down to HDB Branch Office first to see what can be done. Thanks!Originally Posted by zguy
oh.... that's going to be a bother...
ok thanks will inform him about that.
It appears from HDB letter that they agree to him buying over the part-share of the flat.
Anyway, they've also requested him to consult a solicitor with regards to the conveyancing matter, as they do not want to get involved (for whatever reason).
Any solicitor to recommend?
spoke to a solicitor over the phone, and she mentioned the ex-wife needing to engage her own solicitor to act in this case.
am so confused!
