Advice for Flat Buyers

Applicants are strongly advised to apply for a BTO flat in non-mature towns to enjoy a higher chance of success in securing a flat. Though SBF flats have a shorter waiting time to completion, the number of units in each town is small and is likely to attract high application rates.

Regular updates on the number of applications submitted for the various flat types/towns will be published on the HDB InfoWEB. Applicants are advised to check for updates before submitting their application. . Application for May 2014 BTO and SBF Exercises

Application for new flats launched in the May 2014 BTO and SBF exercises can be submitted online on the HDB InfoWEB from today, 22 May 2014 (Thursday) to 28 May 2014 (Wednesday). Applicants can apply for only one flat type/category in one town/estate under either the BTO or SBF Exercise.
