yokoyoko, i am a proud owner of RP flat! Well....the disadvantage in getting RP flat will be: some of the structures have been change by the previous owner, most are in mature estates, whereby the resale prices are crazy but only thing good abt resale flats is that u can see the interior before u purchase it...but for RP, that is no way u can see the interior unless u book the flat and pay a 2k booking fee. The only advise i have is...u need to have like 15k and more for reno unless the movein condition is pretty good like kitchen wise whereby u can save a big sum of money like 5-8k :D. For me, i am doing basic reno which involves changing my living, balcony, dining, kitchen and 2 toilets wall and floor tiles, doing my kitchen cabinets and 2 toilets w one vanity top, one built-in wardobe and whole house electrical and lights, include changing windows for balcony, dining and kitchen and grilles for whole place. ALL this cost us 30k! Bear in mind, i dun have any features wall, shoe cabinet and divider..and WIW...so more u know more or less what u want and what u need.. good luck!

is there anyway that we can check the previous owner details ? as is why do they sell back to HDB ? migrate, death , house 'not clean' or own loan shark ? i have heard some of the house have murder cases etc..so they hv no choice but to sell back to HDB:p

tweetie76, what i did was i ask the next door neighbour, they told me that my flat was vacant for a couple of yrs..they heard that the previous owners got in suitcase w govt..and therefore it was taken back by govt lor. Anyway, i was staying that area..less than 100m away..so roughly i know is there any "bad" news happened to the flat. Best is..u go and ask the neigbour as they will know the best and when u pay the booking fees, go and have a feel of the flat...sometimes..if u dun feel comfortable w the flat, it is always better to forfeit the money and wait for an ideal flat to come...afterall, u are gog to stay there for at least 5 yrs!

Hi all,

I think HDB had a couple of repurchased flats to offer for matured housng estate... thats y there is a bi-monthly sale of 4 n bigger flats going on.. and i will be attending the appointment tml.

anyone here been to the appointment make by them? or had bought from them?

Any gd n bad expriences and advise to share?

Thanks... :sport-smiley-018:

My gf bought a repurchased flat from HDB. Place was in pretty bad condition, think HDB only changed rivets, taps, and rubbish chute for them. But they asked neighbour and apparently flat has been vacant for 2 years. So they think nevermind, flat has potential and they spend a bomb to redo the place. Then recently they apply for starhub cable, and find out the previous owner owe them a lot of money. And apparently previous owners owe Amex money also (amex sold bad debt to private company to reclaim debt), so they getting letters demanding for money... and have to go through all the hassle of sending parties photocopies of new ownership. So now they have to worry about previous owners still using their IC (not updated one) to borrow from loan shark.

But this is heng or suay ones right?
