If my parents file for divorce, is transferring the flat ownership to my mother and I the only way to retain our HDB flat? Does that mean I will not be able to apply for a BTO with my fiancé? Or can my mother retain the flat under the Single Singapore Cit

    Your mother can retain the flat under the Single Singapore Citizen Scheme if she is a Singapore citizen and at least 35 years old. Additionally, the HDB flat must either be a resale flat purchased from the open market without the Enhanced CPF Housing Grant (Family Grant), or the 5 year minimum occupation period must be satisfied if the flat was bought directly from HDB or if it was a resale flat purchased from the open market with the Family Grant.
