    I am a Singapore Citizen (35 years old) and my spouse is a SC too. I am looking to buy a 5 rm hdb where i am the sole owner and he is occupier, i paid all of the down payment and the installment. I will not be getting grant for the hdb.

    If we go through a divorce in 6mths-2 yrs time and I have the full custody of children where he visits them weekly, can i retain the hdb myself?

    I phoned the hotline and they told me it is possible as I am the sole owner but I want to be sure. thanks

    Hi, u r very knowledgeable in HDB.
    Wonder can u help me on e below. Thxs in advance.

    My mom wants to sell part-share of her fully paid hdb flat to me at a mutually agreed price.
    May I know is it possible? If can, what is the procedures?
    Example if she were to sell the partial flat to me at 200k & my cpf only have abt 100k, does that mean I hv to tke up a loan? I m 35 this year and have taken a hdb loan before. Sold my flat 6 years ago due to divorce. So m i still eligible? Pls advise.
