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

Once the Power of Attorney is duly deposited at the High Court of Singapore, we will send the original Power of Attorney to you in accordance with the “mode of collection” indicated by you. Additional charges may be incurred if the mode of delivery is by courier, hand, or registered post.

Your lawyers will also write a letter to HDB to confirm that they have used one of the prescribed HDB Power of Attorney formats, and render HDB a copy of the Power of Attorney.

After the receipt of the original Power of Attorney from us, you or your Attorney may then proceed to the relevant HDB Department at the appropriate time:-
