This is a discussion on how to appeal for a flat and welfare aids? within the HDB, DBSS, Executive Condominium Discussion forum, part of the Home Planning Forum category; Originally Posted by tinkerball my flat is currently 3 room. however i dont see that as my ideal permanent home ...
However for her case, paull, her purpose is as what I see, to rent out tht Extra room for extra income to finance the house etc.. Alot of ppl are doing his but they need to think of the contingency plans eg what if the room is not occupied for a period? Would yr financing be a risk?
I learnt a lesson when i was staying with my ex-landlord. Their case is that they do not have the ability to support the 4rm flat despite renting out to ppl n in the end HDB forced them to sell their house n live with some other ppl on a 3rm flat. What's more the 3 room flat isn't theirs, it belongs to hdb. They are just so called "renting" the flat together with other ppl.
All in all, it still depends on your financial ability & important planning

thanks ar, so concern for me =) sigh now still applying for bto, still cant get now punggol and seng kang also apply ..hope can get a flat, location and how many bedrm also nvm ..
yeah i did apply, but that time i apply for 4 rm, so did not get..i'm waiting for the sale of balance flat thingy to launch, but when i call up hdb to ask they say this year dont have ..
Actually before 2010, HDB always have Quarterly sale of balance flat but ever since oct 2009 they are not doing it regularly & I also checked with them. They said that it will be based on HDB's decision whether to launch sale of balance flat at any point of time.
btw, you can subscribe to HDB email notifications of any launch of BTOs & sale of balance flats
