Hi All,

Need help. I have selected 2 contractors for the renovation of my home, one of them is not in the HDB list of the approve contractors.

I need advise on what is the difference between a non-approve HDB contractor and HDB approve contractor?

As from what i know the non-approve HDB contractor can also apply permit from HDB.  What is the consequence of getting

the contractor which is nonHDB approve. Thanks

I would go for HDB licence contractor as HDB have strict requirements to get the licence.  If the contractor do not have experience in the private sector, they do not give it to them and I know HDB have a banker guarantee or bond according to HDB site.  So if anything got problem like hack wrong wall, water proofing problems, they go after the licence holder which is an individual.    If you use a non-licence contractor the owner bear the consequences if got problems after a few years.  It is not after a few months as some like to tell you.  Most of the time, when ID or  contractor tells you it is ok to use them as they borrow the licence for wet works, it is because they do not qualify for the licence or worst got banned by HDB which gives demerit points to compliants.  Too many demerit points, I am sure HDB will suspend their licence or banned them.  If so easy to get licence, then everyone, Singapore, Malaysian and China contractors with experience or no experience or any junior or even senior interior designers will get the licence already.  When I get quote from the few contractors and ID that I shortlisted, the first thing I ask them is if they got HDB licence for wet works.  I think if they are not even licence holders personally themselves, that say so much about their experience levels,. And there are so many licence holders to select, probably in the thousands, so why take the risks.  And I check the individual name of the contractor with HDB and not just company name and make sure it is not a borrowed licence which they will say it is related companies and more often than not it is not true.  Don't be mislead lah.
