2 room bto after 5 years mop also cannot rent out?

All along i though for 2 room bto for singles with 99 years lease de.

After 5 years mop, the owner can rent out the entire hdb n move out.

Today my cousin who got the 2 room bto. He say the agreement that he sign with hdb says that he "forever" cannot rent out the 2 room bto, after 5 years mop he can sell the hdb to singles or poor families but he cannot rent it out.

Hdb say because the bto is heavily subsidized so owner cannot rent it out.

Is this true?

Hdb flat is for owner occupation. Even if invest in pte property, hv to stay hdb and rent out the pte.

2rm got no seperate room to rent out. So owner stay where? Thats the rationale.

if im not wrong, you can rent out whole unit after you have reached the 5yrs MOP regardless of unit type, provided you are a SC.. PR not allowed to rent out even after MOP.. max occupancy for 1 / 2 rooms flat is 4 paxs .. 3 rooms and bigger is 6 paxs ..

I think after 5 years MOP, can rent out the whole unit but to register the tenants thru' HDB. Or else how tenants' register their WP ids? Property taxes different, and no more GST vouchers, etc. The owners got to stay back at relatives for this sort of income earned. Don' quote me, just do things the legit way.

Eligibility conditions for flat owners
You can rent out your spare bedrooms if you own a 3-room or bigger flat. If you own a 1 or 2-room flat, you are not allowed to rent out your bedroom.

Is this true?
What TS mention is OWNER SHIFT OUT, Rent out the whole 2 room unit, and your cousin mention can't be done (from the agreement he/she read)

Pls ask him to show you the agreement and the clause which states what you mentioned. (maybe there is new rule in 2020, who knows?)

or maybe you prefer to believe this official HDB website :
Pls click : Eligibility to rent out whole unit after MOP

Under <<Eligibility conditions for persons who wish to rent HDB flats >> ,
I can see 1room and 2 room flat being reflected there.

To those who are confused, room rental is definitely a NO NO... as the rational is there is no additional room for extra tenant (if owner is already physically staying there.)

Room rental ,
and renting out whole unit,
is two different issues altogether.

Pls don't lump them together and confuse each other.

For room rental, it's clear 'Only bedrooms from HDB flats that are 3-room or larger can be rented out'

But one is allowed to sublet whole flat after MOP.
