I'm a recent divorcee and only returned to SG after being away for 10 years. I had recently taken custody of my son from my ex-wife due to personal reasons. Plus I currently live in a single room with my son right now so it's not good for him. I was also actually short of 1 month to fulfil the 12 months continuous working history needed to apply for grants.

I wasn't actually planning on applying for the Feb RoF because I technically didn't qualify. I decided to try because I desperately need a place to stay for my son and myself.

I went down to enquire about my case and they encouraged me to try balloting. Managed to get a decent number and the officer helped me appeal for early collection and also appeal for the grant. They were really helpful, going the extra mile to help me. I am truly grateful.

My advise is be friendly and polite, request and don't demand. If you treat people with respect and courtesy, they tend to reciprocate. I worked in service and customer service for over 10 years, I always appreciate it when clients and customers treat me with respect and understanding.
Noted with thanks! Did they do a 2nd assessment for you?

Sorry one more question, for CPF statement & Contribution history, for nov 2017 application, when they say latest.. we submit 2016 statement or 2015 statement? confused...
Mine was Feb ROF. I printed my 2017 & 2018 contribution history and 2017 statement.

They want the 12 months from application so should be Nov 16 to Nov 17 contribution for you i think. For statement I would print both 2016 & 2017 to be safe.

No, I applied for my HLE at the begining of Feb 2018. My selection date was on the 12th of April and still valid on key collection. Plus my salary status no change.

Ya. I called hdb. Is a must the parents attend to sign a letter of undertaking to confirm they wonít moved within 5 years from the date you collect keys.Alternatively, you can arrange the hdb officer to come your hse to let ur parents sign. But to do that u can tell the officer on the day when u select the unit. Then u arrange a day u go down to hdb and accompany the officer to ur hse let your parents sign the undertaking form

Hi all,

I have been given an appointment date for the Nov SBF.
However, both my fiance and i wont be in singapore during the whole of this period.
I understand that we will need to have the authorisation form to appoint an authrised person to book on our behalf.

We were wondering, do we have to also provide the authorised person with all the documents such as the appointment letter (annex 1, 2), as both of us are already overseas and unable to provide the some of the signed documents in original.

  1. 508A YISHUN AVE 4 10-86
  2. 508B YISHUN AVE 4 10-74
  3. 672B YISHUN AVE 4 09-534
  4. 675C YISHUN AVE 4 09-792
  5. 508B YISHUN AVE 4 08-54
  6. 509A YISHUN AVE 4 08-12
  7. 502C YISHUN ST 51 07-444
  8. 672C YISHUN AVE 4 07-576
  9. 507A YISHUN AVE 4 07-108
  10. 672B YISHUN AVE 4 06-550
  11. 672B YISHUN AVE 4 06-548

Is anyone before her in the queue getting these units? Would be great to let her know in advance so she can choose other units?

You do know that not all the balloters for yishun are on this forum right? Your friend needs to check the available flat balance on the website by herself when it comes to her turn for the remaining flats available.

No, no grant. I believe grantn will take longer time to process, speed can be one month plus as knowing from this post.

Hi. I applied for the same. No appt yet. Donít quite have hope on being able to select a unit. Any idea when the selection starts? Fingers crossed on drop out rates so that i get a chance. Woodlands pasture seems like a very nice estate with more options

Hi, may I know how did you manage to get such a quick key collection? I also no grant and asked for early key collection at flat booking. It's now been 21 days since.

No, no grant. I believe grantn will take longer time to process, speed can be one month plus as knowing from this post.
