INSPECTION BY HDB Technical Officers
A date will be fixed for the HDB Branch to inspect the resale flat. The sellers will be informed of the inspection date in HDB’s notification of the acceptance of the resale application. HDB’s approval of the resale will be withheld if the flat is not inspected by the HDB Branch.
The purpose of the inspection by the HDB Branch is to check for unauthorised renovation works in the resale flat which may damage the common property or other flats in the building and affect the structural stability of the building. The inspection is not to ascertain the value of the resale flat, the condition and safety of the renovation works or whether the renovation works comply with the requirements imposed by other competent authorities.
The sellers must regularise/remove any unauthorised renovation works found in the resale flat before completion of the resale transaction.
