REQUESTS FOR VALUE OF FLAT
Buyers who are financing the purchase of the flat with CPF savings or a housing loan from HDB or bank/financial institution must submit a Request for Value to HDB to determine the value of the flat which forms the basis for their CPF usage or bank loan.
Only buyers who have been granted an Option to Purchase shall submit a Request for Value. Buyers must (by themselves in the HDB Resale Portal or through their agent via the e-Resale System or Estate Agent Toolkit) submit the Request for Value by the next working day* after the Option Date. Scanned copies of page 1 of the Option to Purchase must be attached with the request.
They will need to pay a non-refundable processing fee of $120 (including GST) to HDB.
HDB will decide whether a valuation of the flat is required to determine the value of the flat. If HDB requires a valuation of the flat, HDB will assign any of the private valuation firms on HDB’s Panel of Valuers to conduct the valuation.
If the valuation of the flat is required by HDB, the sellers must, within three (3) working days* after the day the buyers submit the Request for Value, allow the HDB assigned valuer to enter and inspect the flat for the valuation.
The buyers can check the status of the Request for Value from the HDB Resale Portal. HDB will inform the buyers via email once the value of the flat is available in the HDB Resale Portal.
The value of the flat is only applicable to the specific Option to Purchase and is not valid for use in another resale transaction. The buyers of the flat as stated in the Option to Purchase, Request for Value and resale application must be the same.
Buyers under a different Option to Purchase for the same flat must submit a new Request for Value.
The value of the flat will remain valid for a period of 3 months from the day it is made available in the HDB Resale Portal. If the buyers do not submit a resale application within the 3-month validity period, they will have to submit a new Request for Value. In this event, the housing loan amount to be granted by HDB or bank/financial institution and the use of CPF savings for the purchase of the flat will be based on the value of the flat determined via the new Request for Value.
