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.
Yes.. by right once u see grant approve with amount. by next 2-3working days u can see the amount credited into yours or your spouse CPF account. then confirm can start chasing HDB for appointment on keys collection already.

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.

Precisely. I cannot understand too. I told them if the whole project do not have any leftover tiles(which they usually purchase more, much more) I dun mind having other tiles from other project which they can charge to my buying price accordingly. Here's their reply.


We refer to you email of 22 Jun 2018. We also refer to our conversation of 28 Jun 2018.

2 We have considered your appeal to include floor finishes for the booked 4-room flat at XXX XXX XXXXXXXX XXXXX #XXXXXX. but we regret to inform that we are unable to accede to it as we are unable to accommodate further changes at this stage of construction of the flat.

3 We wish to clarify that the option to opt for floor finishes (bedroom/living/dining areas) under the Optional Component Scheme (OCS) is only applicable for new flats offered during initial sale launch under the Build-To-Order (BTO) exercise. For balance flats subsequently sold under our Sale of Balance Flats (SBF) or Re-Offer of Balance Flats (ROF) exercise, the OCS option will no longer be available. This is so as our building contractors would have ordered the materials and made provisions to install the flooring finishes so that there would be no delay in the completion of the flats. Hence we are sorry that we are unable to provide the floor finishes to your new flat.

I don't want to chase when i paid deposit, they told me keys will be by this year and need to produce marriage certification upon signing of agreement. I asked on appeal - they say fairly subjective.

Did more research and most couples usually did not have any problem once they give proof such as banquet invoice. But also depends on your CRM lor, especially if you take grant or not also.

Me and SO in tricky situation because we not having banquet. Doing mosque wedding and they only allow bookings to be done 3 months in advance. So I got no proof as my wedding planned to have it in February and can only book in December (which is the worse time to do anything since everyone is on leave). After I book mosque and confirm the venue then I can book others things. Better stay quiet for now

I thought want to hack everything. Don't think I would be so keen on HDB's design. Can probably close one eye if can overlay but I went to this renovation talk last week - they did tell me some problems with overlay. So now not too sure what to do.

We can still take out the sink/toilet/shower head and replace it right? No need ask HDB permission for it?

Usually houses completed faster mah. You went and take a look already to see if the building 3/4 up or 1/2 up?

What I read was that most houses now use PPVC method. They comes standard with sanitary fittings but no flooring for bedroom/living/dining areas. Likelihood is that they have completed payment or fixed a sum with contractor and it will be a hassle on their end with the paperwork for one person's request bah.

We also thought that should be the building department that doesn't approve our appeal. Went to see so many times liao. Latest update is until 21 storey high. Total floor is 25 lvl. Still very raw, not painted. Nothing at all. Just have to wait now. My previous owner chose the unit without kitchen partition and flooring. Nothing much I can do

Hdb auto tell me, they take note of my request for early keys collection. But actually I just emailed to ask about flooring & when can I collect keys lor.

My unit keys available. Flat up already. I also think, no grants faster. So weird, they credit the grant in my cpf quite fast lei.

Did u appeal for early key collection?

Ya.. It's blank. I've been logging in & out hdbpage. Kiasu right. You mean, I can just call up hdb hotline instead of calling my CRM?

Quite high liao. I think internal finishing mostly completed. Still need to allocate time for checks, paints etc which might contribute to their decision though.

All the best though. If not, welcome to big spenders club la hahaha
