Can I keep my HDB flat in a divorce?
Divorced with children
If you have custody (and care and control) of your child, you can retain the flat if eligibility conditions are met. (Divorce must not be due to non-consummation of marriage or annulment.)
Divorced without children
If you have no children from the marriage, you can only retain the flat under the Single Singapore Citizen Scheme if:
- You are a Singaporean Citizen
- You are at least 35 years old
- Your matrimonial flat is a resale flat purchased from the open market without the CPF Housing Grant for family.
When can you sell your HDB flat
If you wish to sell your flat in the open market, you must have satisfied the MOP by the divorce completion date.
