SINGAPORE Housing Policies: interim rental flats


Dear Prime Minister Lee of Singapore,

I'm sending this email as either you, or your admin has blocked me on social media.

My name is Han Hui Hui, mother of two Singaporean sons named Justice 义 and Magnanimous 倜.

I'm concerned about the housing policies in Singapore as I do not want my family or my future generations to be homeless.

On 5 April 2021, Singapore's Parliament announced that 43,000 households will get the keys to their Build-To-Order (BTO) flats late owing to construction delays that are due to manpower shortages and supply chain disruptions.

For the first time in Singapore's history, home buyers affected by Build-To-Order (BTO) construction delays may be able to cancel their flat booking without penalties.

In July 2021, Singapore public housing resale prices rise for the 12th straight month with 19 million-dollar flats sold in June 2021 because of the delay by the Singapore government.

On 3 August 2021, after months of campaigning about public housing, with the focus on interim rental flats, the Singapore government has decided to have an additional 800 interim rental Housing Board flats to be set aside for families affected by Build-To-Order (BTO) construction delays.

This may seem like good news, and Singapore's propaganda machinery claimed that the government doubled up.
The fact is, there are around 840 existing units under the scheme, the additional 800 will make it a total of 1640.
However, the HDB had received 2,350 applications under the PPHS compared with 1,370 in 2019.
The scheme has supported only 3,000 families since it began in 2013.
The supply that the government is providing is less than the demand, resulting in Singaporean families having no choice but to seek shelter in the resale market, paying more money and driving Singapore's GDP up.

Is this sustainable in the long run?

Please feel free to forward this email.
