Buying HDB as a single who's married overseas

Dear all, as above... Can I buy a HDB under the 'singles scheme' if I'm married overseas?

Why would you want to buy as a single? Doesn’t it give you more choices in terms of location and size to buy as a married couple? Hmm only reason I could think of is that you don’t want your other half to have any ownership of the house or your other half will cause you guys to exceed the income ceiling if you combine income. Anyway I think you will have to declare you are not married and are single when you buy it and you would be making a false declaration if you go ahead

That is cheating. Just don't get caught.

You should know the consequences and be prepared to bear them if caught.

Even in sg, ROM is not linked to hdb

If you get marry in sg and you never inform hdb, you and wife still can each buy your own hdb

Only 2-room BTO flats in non mature estates.

Considered 2nd timer. MOP applies for the first BTO.

No, because you are not single anymore, regardless of where your marriage is solemnised. In the same way if you are married in Singapore you will not say you are single the moment you leave Singapore, right?
