HDB Inheritance with Existing Private Property

HDB Inheritance with Existing Private Property

Question: Can I inherit an HDB flat if I already own a private property?

Answer: The ability to inherit an HDB flat while owning a private property depends on when the original HDB flat was purchased. If the HDB flat was bought before 30th August 2010, you can retain both the inherited HDB flat and your existing private property. However, if the HDB flat was purchased on or after 30th August 2010, you would typically need to sell one of the properties, usually the HDB flat.

Key Considerations and Steps:

  1. Ownership Timeline: Identify the purchase date of the inherited HDB flat to determine the applicable inheritance rules.

  2. Eligibility Criteria: Ensure compliance with HDB regulations regarding property ownership eligibility for both HDB flats and private properties.

  3. Selling Strategy: If required to divest one property, strategize the selling process to align with personal and financial objectives.

Summary and Highlights:

  • Timeline Check: Verify the purchase date of the inherited HDB flat to understand the inheritance regulations.

  • Eligibility Confirmation: Ensure eligibility to own an HDB flat while also owning a private property.

  • Selling Planning: Strategize the sale of one property to comply with HDB regulations and personal goals.
