Wow, 2 room rental with 5 kids?!? i got a 2 room rental under my name before i remarried.. moved in with hb and 2 kids after we got married.. we moved out 2 days later.. the unit next door always blast music and sing karaoke!! so unlucky to pick that unit
Same! My nxt door neighbour also every weekends 8am start singing karaoke already. But i got used to it already lah. But her husband 1 day came back home drunk n start shouting n banging on my door. Saying tht my son loud crying he cannot sleep. I didnt open the door of course! But now my son 3yrs old didnt cry anymore lah. My house usually very quiet. My son autistic n didnt like loud sound. So even when we talk..hv to lower our tone. Else it will trigger him.

Same CRM here.... Call her lots of time then she will start to get agitated... I was very aggressive initially but was told off cos i kept calling lol. no choice just play with group mail and hotline....
I emailed my crm this morning also...then i CC Marine parade Grc and CC Mr Goh also. I dun care lah if she wants to be annoyed or not. I more annoyed. When i applied for HLE they asked me for many docs which i dont have. Want my divorced cert,court order. I burnt tht cert 10yrs ago already. Then want credit bureau report.. 1yr bank statement, completion of sale... i go up n down court n hdb to retrieve my divorce documents and previous house sales docs back, reprint my bank statement still hv to pay some more. Do so many things just to get HLE approval then suddenly go selection tell me cannot pay balance using HLE. Wahh not funny already. Appeal to let me use my HLE to pay for balance still wants me to give them documented proof of wat i spent. My poor husband 1st time buying house, wanting to take hdb loan 34k also very hard bcuz of my past. Its been more than 1 mth since i made the appeal still cannot tell me approve or not. My HLE expiring in Aug... i think they want to wait until my HLE expired then tell me my appeal is approved and cn pay balance using HLE. Sigh

I will explode if i have to reapply HLE again.

Eh but mine also resale flat. During selection the officer told me during signing lease must pay levy 20k
Oh. My officer didn't say anything about it. From what I know, unless we buy new unit from HDB and sell it. When we buy new HDB flat for the 2nd time, we will need to pay the levy. I didn't know there's a resales levy

Can understand how you feel. I also encounter problem when applying for HLE. Ask for my husband CRB report, bank statement, etc.... I write big big font and converted into PDF, tell them we do not have such documents. If have any issue, just call me.

Have you ever thought of applying bank loan instead for your case? Some bank loan is kinda low.

Good Morning Everybody. I went to see the MP yesterday. I met up with Mr Chong who is in-charge of our area. He told the volunteer to write the letter and he mentioned that he will sign for it. He don't understand why couldn't HDB approve my appeal too. Anyway, he said he will help. Hopefully can get approval.

The volunteer told me that in case cannot get approval, I can tell the HDB to do floor screeding. The whole house lay with vinyl flooring. Which means I will only pay for the cost for the vinyl flooring which is about $3 per sqf. He did that for his 5 room HDB in Sengkang which cost him $3k plus only.

I understand you. When HDB first told me that i was a second timer and we are only eligible for half grant, i feel like crying cos it was sort of unfair for my husband who is a first timer. We were really depending on the grant amount to cover whatever we lack... Almost wanted to back out during selection cos CSO keep emphasizing. "HALF GRANT.... NOT ENOUGH... FORK OUT CASH... 20K....."

When you login to hdb page, it is still blank under the sign of agreement appointment? I think you should be able to call and check with the CSO on when you can expect keys to be issued. That's what the CSO told me that after grant approval, can call in and get estimated month.

For my side, bathrooms and kitchen floorings are done by HDB, cannot chose. This also includes the bathroom fixtures.
I was actually trying to find out more info on this but not much luck. Some couples blogged saying that it was compulsory and cannot hack for 3 years. Made me wonder how couples renovated their bathroom to make it nicer if its compulsory and cannot change for 3 years.

Found a helpful link after digging through past forums: https://forums.hardwarezone.com.sg/h...#post110501570
