Need some help and those chaps at HDB can't help very well...

I am looking for a re sale flat for my own accomodations. I am > 35 and wish to reside alone.

What is the income limit if any? I get so many differing responses from HDB, its beginning to become annoying.

Anyway, anyone have some nice tips on where to begin hunting and things to look out for.

I prefer a bigger unit for all my stuff and for friends to visit when they come over from other countries.

Thanks.

Oh: Since I work near the Science Parks, somewhere around there is best.

Thanks for the info, thats the bit I need.
I get all sorts of differing info from HDB on income limits.
I just want to get a flat, and they don't seem to like singles.

So any flat on the open market is game, I assume?

Cheers

base on what I know , pls verify with a property agent or go down personally to the HDB Hub and talk to a officer.
1)to buy a resale HDB , there is no income limit
2)to get the housing loan from HDB then there is an income limit (not sure what the limit for a single). Oherwise you have to get the housing loan from a bank
3)to apply for housing grant (for 1st time buyer or for living near parents). then there is an income limit (not sure what the limit for a single)

No income limit cap at $3k if you are taking the 11k grant, Hdb loan wif subsidise rate.

No limit if u are not taking the grant n hdb subsidise rate or/and taking bank loan or not taking any loan.

Calling HDB is like that one... ie. different officers, different ans....already use to it! :bsmilie:

I remember there is a household income (per month) limit for buying flat from HDB. Something along the lines of..

$5000 for 3-room
$8000 for 4/5-room
$10000 for EC

As for re-sale I don't think the limit applies at all.

Ok

I finally got a reply from HDB:

If you are a Singapore Citizen, you can buy a resale flat in the open market under the Single Singapore Citizen Scheme. For more information on the eligibility conditions under the Single Singapore Citizen Scheme, please click on the following:

http://www.hdb.gov.sg/fi10/fi10201p.nsf/WPDis/Buying%20A%20Resale%20FlatEligibility%20Scheme%20-%20Single%20Singapore%20Citizen%20Scheme?OpenDocument&SubMenu=Eligibility_Schemes

There is no income ceiling under the Single Singapore Citizen Scheme. However, if you wish to request the Singles Grant of $11,000 or Higher-tier Singles Grant of $20,000 for living with your parents, the income ceiling of $8,000 is applicable. For more information on the Singles Grant, please click on the following:
