jumbo flats can be found in any estates..predominantly mature estates with adjacent 3 room units..some said it must be a corner unit with a next-to-corner unit..but 2 of my friends managed to buy one with 2x corridor units

as long as these 3 rooms are joined together living room to living room, it can be converted to Jumbo when the buyer buys over the other 3 rm. Not necessarily a corner with a corridor unit.

you can adjoin any 2x3rm flats. but the rule of thumb is, the halls must be joined together.

to a layman, a converted flat may be considered jumbo, but to hdb, it's may only be considered as EA flat. i've encountered such a case where 2x3rms were combined, but the valuation report states it's only considered as an EA flat. so if you really want a true jumbo flat, i suggest you look at woodlands.

i think to be considered a true jumbo flat require the floor area to be at least 150sqm and not the number of rooms.

I agreed with U on the flr area thingy..................however
, I did 4 case where 2x3rms is just a 5 room but on paper is a Jumbo....
those tat u r refering in Woodlands r HDB built....& they are typically 3rms combined & so call Jumbo Flats....
What I'm referring here is besides the HDB built....there are some around that r converted when they buy over they unit next to them.
