5A resale flat with a budget (without ID)

Recommended Posts

Lately I noticed there’s dark water flowing 2B8D2E3A-D8C1-4271-8F33-F77055B3078F.jpeg.5bb2a078b741430a0de8866d385af05f.jpeg

down the sanitary pipe area. Didn’t bother much before but somehow this morning I decided to check. 

Found a small crack. Called town council and they arranged for a plumber to come in the afternoon.

Hello !

Bought  a 4a resale from his dad. 20 over years old unit pretty low price, but in very bad condition. Almost all will need a revamp. 

After many IDs & contractors visits we settle for this Contractor. Quite reasonable. 

Here are some before pictures.

Reno completed in a month ✔️ Doesn’t mean early completion is a major red flag. Very hands on Pakcik was here every day. (Well, he’s not really that old lah.. maybe early 50s?)

Within budget ✔️

No gst ✔️

No delay ✔️

Plumber came to rectify the crack. Was informed this normally happen due to wear and tear of an old hdb flat.

Plumber also informed me that he suspect above unit is leaking. So i told him to look at the ceiling outside the toilet window panels. Then he went like, “Aiyoh! Confirm upstair leak. Call hdb faster faster.”

I’ve already called and emailed hdb but still no follow up. It’s been a month plus. Keep telling me someone will arrange for an appoinment. Kind of frustrating. 

So plumber told me he will help to get Town Council to call the hdb officer in charge directly. And voila! One hour later, someone from hdb called! 

Hdb officer came down in the afternoon. Did a test on service yard, kitchen and toilets ceiling and confirmed upstair unit is leaking. Sigh! 

 

* anyway, my messenger is working now

Okay, this was what happened yesterday...

I thought the sanitary pipe leaks again. Called Town Council, the same plumber came.

He touched the ceiling and showed me his palm. It was wet! He then told me to on all the lights. He started pointing on the ceiling. That’s when I realised there’s water mark stains.... and some on the kitchen! 

So this morning, the HDB officer called to update that he had checked the above unit. He mentioned something about their washing machine pipe.

So since its connected to my pipe, I will need to pay $150 max. HDB 50%, another 50% split between both party. 

The above unit also has agreed to hack off their two toilet. This I do not need to fork out any cent. But they want the work to start only after hari raya. And hari raya is ONE MONTH! So I requested if they can have their pipe fix first on a weekday. 

Hoping they’re okay with that, don’t tell me there will be guest coming everyday

So in the end did I get to archieve that clean white look that I’ve always dream of? 

NO! :D All thanks to my husband who’s more of a dark colour person - Black study sliding door, black quartz, black fridge, black stove, black chimney hood, no white sofa... 

With that, wishing all Muslim selamat hari raya and the rest happy long holiday :)

Hi Hanna,

Selamat hari raya! I saw what you did to your house and just have to create an account here to request for your contractor's contact as well. We just bought a resale flat and is on a tight budget as well. Hope to hear from you soon! Thanks in advance. :)
