hey there. neeed some advise on a story:-

say my gf and i are planning to buy a house and get married within the next 3 years. but she's already an owner of a HDB and staying with her dad. the dad has no income so it's solely dependant on her.

in cases like this, is it possible for us to own 2 hdb? 1 transferred to her dad's ownership but she continues to help him pay, whilst the other is under our name? or is private really the only way out. unfortunately, we're rather stuck in the middle income group where condo's too pricey and on the verge of not qualifying for hdb anymore.
There r few similar cases in the thread ..pls chk with hdb for any restrictions. .better get it sort out 1st or it will disrupt ur plan later on.

As long as you put back principal plus accrued withdrawn, the excess you keep. But if you above 55, you only need to top up your min sum and medisave required amount from the said principal plus accrued withdrawn.

W"hatever CPF which was used must be put back into the CPF ordinary account.

And if the person is 55yrs old and above, then the CPF which he can used for the next flat will be any access which is above half the minimum sum (according to his age).

HDB or CPF will not ask the owner to use his cash proceed/profit from selling his existing house to top up the CPF minimum sum.

Cash back= selling price minus cpf use+interest..tat is suppose to be..correct info chk with cpf
Wrong.

Cash proceed / profit = Selling price minus (cpf used + interests) , and minus HDB outstanding loan amount if any (usually there is outstanding loan unless owner had paid fully for the flat)

Put it in a simple layman term:

Cash proceed = Selling price - (HDB outstanding loan + CPF used with accured interests)

Just need to know that you CAN'T put in more than what you take out. Even if you want to, they wont allow except by way of voluntary contribution which has an annual limit.

From my pt of view, that’s the dumbest thing to do. U will not see a penny of it ever.

Cold hard cash should be use to do investment, plan for yr retirement.

If u still think yr CPF can cover u for old age, u are in la la land n I wish u best of luck.
So any investment ideas u had which can guarantee min 2.5% interest?

I believe many would also like to know what investments can guarantee min of 2.5% yield with no risk. I got more than enough to pay fully a 4rm flat by CPF and would be willing to dump all into such investments.

A valuation report is not required in a purchase and sale transaction.

If the seller wants it as a guide to decide on his selling price, he should pay for it.

If the buyer wants it because he is required to produce it for purpose of borrowing from HDB or bank, he should pay for it.

Actually last time I ever heard some agents who offered to pay for the valuation report cost if you let them sell your unit.

Not many buyers can actually afford to pay off one lump sum in full without taking a loan like yourself.

So 99.99% of the time, a valuation report is required.

A fair value as deem by the HDB Valuer is given on the Valuation report,
and it will guide buyer on his selling price, and of course let a potential buyer know the COV which he have to pay if he commits to the price after negotiating with the seller.

Usually its the seller or seller's agent who pays for the valuation report to be done first. When a buyer comes along , they will usually buy over the valuation report and submit it to HDB or the bank to apply for their housing loan.
