HUDC estate at Hougang Ave 7 privatised

Only two HUDC estates in Singapore still yet to be privatised

SINGAPORE: The HUDC estate at Hougang Avenue 7 has been privatised under the Land Titles (Strata) Act, after it obtained the required 75 per cent majority support, the Housing and Development Board (HDB) said on Friday (June 13).

This means that the Aljunied-Hougang-Punggol East Town Council is no longer responsible for managing and maintaining the common properties of the estate, which comprises 286 units of flats at Blocks 344 to 350 Hougang Avenue 7.

The Management Corporation Strata Title Plan No. 4013 will be constituted to take over the management and maintenance of the estate’s common properties. Individual owners in the estate will own their respective strata units, as well as the common property such as car parks and open landscaped areas, as tenants-in-common, the HDB said in a statement.

Among the 18 HUDC estates in Singapore, 16 have completed the privatisation process. For the remaining two estates, Potong Pasir is currently undergoing privatisation, while Braddell View has just obtained the support level for privatisation.
