The darken ( shaded ) block is a load bearing wall. We need the front photo as the plan may be misleading ,

It may be the case where there is a load bearing ' beam ' , the wall below the bean can be hacked. You will need ypour Contractor/ ID to take photos and submit plan to HDB to ask for approval

Thanks ARTnLIFE! I am not yet at the stage of engaging an ID. Got hold of the floorplan to help me decide whether to buy the resale flat. I am looking for a flat which allows me to hack between the MBR and the room next to it to form a large bedroom + walk-in closet. As I do not have an ID yet, any idea how I can get a definitive indication on whether it's the whole wall or just the beam that cannot be hacked?

Have seen friends & had customers who had their 20~ 30 odd years unit done that.

 Everyone ( ID, contractor, experienced friends etc ) can say this ar , that ar, but the procedure is thsi

1) your contractor submit the floor plan and form to HDB

2) they will reply can or cannot ( need to wait  for a week+ ?)

3) iF cannot , can appeal ( wait another week + ) and a survyer may/ may not come down to do assessment tp verify or check if got illegally do hacking

 

** beware ** unauthoirized hacking will cause structural damage to building, HDB will do emergency repair to building and the owner / contractor etc will be charged !

Thanks ARTnLiFE. No intention at all to be an irresponsible person and hack without getting the necessary approvals. Just wanted to find out at this stage how I can know for sure whether the wall can be hacked. Kinda sad someone misunderstood my intentions and downvoted my post.
