OpenGov is recognising HDB of Singapore for the new online HDB resale portal. The new portal was launched on 1 January, 2018 to streamline the resale transaction process for public housing in Singapore. The portal minimises the need for manual entry of data. The personal details of the buyers and sellers are auto-populated in the application forms from the Government’s MyInfo service.
All eligibility checks are integrated on a single platform. Flat buyers are also able to view their eligibility for housing grants and an HDB concessionary housing loan through the portal. The entire transaction time, from submission to completion of the resale application, is being shortened by up to 8 weeks from 16 weeks previously.
