What happens after my Power of Attorney for HDB Flat is registered in High Court?

Collection of POA #

After our successful depositing the Power of Attorney (POA) at the High Court of Singapore, collect the original document from our office.

Reasons for Collection in Person #

We no longer send original documents via registered post due to manpower constraints, non-collection, and delivery issues with SingPost.

After receiving our email confirming the POA deposit at the High Court, collect the following from our office by yourself, your attorney or your authorised representative:

  • Our original letter to the donor and attorney
  • Original POA with the High Court’s cover page

  • Our original letter to HDB confirming POA preparation based on HDB’s prescribed format, and with enclosed a copy of the POA with the High Court’s cover page.

Please note that if the original POA documents are not collected within one month following our notification, we shall not be responsible for any loss, destruction, or non-availability for any reason whatsoever.
