Asked on 28 Nov 2018
My HDB BTO flat has already reached the 5 years MOP and both of us are equal owners of the flat. I would like to buy over my husband's share for the HDB but I'm below 35 years old. Anyone or have friends has successfully appeal to MP to buy over the flat below 35 years old? Thinking of appeal to MP and they will help me write letter to HDB. What are the appeal reasons that I can appeal to MP?
It is possible to appeal to HDB, but very strong reasons and proof will be needed. You will also have to be very close to age 35. Financial situation is also something that will be looked at. If the property in question is bigger-room and you are financially well, it will be much harder.
One of the case (I heard) that is successful: reasons among her parents' flat is very small and have family issues, property in question is a 3room flat. She is also divorced, childless, and close to age35.
The other option is if u are able to form a family nucleas with your parent? But I think most parents have their name to their property.
Have u considered to delay your divorce? You might want to consider a formal agreement of separation. Discuss with your lawyer. Reach an agreement with your husband now, u could start paying for the hdb mortgage in full first.
Let me know if u require more help or lawyer referral (if u not already have one).
