MOP Rules Revised for purchasers of Sers Replacement HDB

As per the recent rules, HDB owners who bought their Sers (Selective En Bloc Redevelopment Scheme) flat will only be allowed to resell their houses after five years from the key collection date. This rule will be first implemented in the Sers flats that are found in the Ang Mo Kio Site.


If we talk about the previous regulations, homeowners were allowed to sell their units seven years counting from the day they selected their unit at a specific replacement site. Either way, they can also sell their houses five years counted from the key collection date. It clearly means that the owners who purchased SERS flat could sell their houses even before the completion of the five years duration. This is likely to provide them an edge over Sers owners that are investing in flats at some other sites by using Sers rehousing benefits with SBF (Sale of Balance Flats), BTO (Built to Order) schemes, or via open booking, which they are allowed to sell their flats after completion of the five years span.
