Loan-sharking activities prevention

Flat owners to register subletting of rooms with HDB From February 1 this year, flat owners who sub-let rooms in their HDB flats will have to register with the Housing & Development Board (HBD) within seven days. They will also be required to notify HDB when they renew or terminate the sub-letting of rooms, as well as of any changes to their sub-tenants' particulars. However, there is no need to seek prior approval for sub-letting of rooms. HDB said that the new rule will support the Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA)'s on-going efforts to eradicate loan-sharking activities, and will better protect HDB residents. Through this, HDB will be able to capture the particulars of those who rent rooms in HDB flats. The requirement will apply to both new and existing cases of room sublets. For tenancies that commenced before February 1, owners will be given a six-month grace period from that date to register. Meanwhile, for sublets from February 1, owners will have to register with HDB
