HDB Received 370 Requests For Rent Assistance
The Housing and Development Board (HDB) obtained an average of 370 requests for rental aid each month from January to July 2020.
Throughout the very same period, 325 households monthly had their leas minimized, while 1,470 houses monthly were emplaced on or restored for ComCare rent help.
” The minimized lease will apply for the rest of each family’s existing occupancy term (approximately three years),” said the Ministry of National Advancement (MND) in a written response to Parliament on 4 September.
The statement was made in reaction to MP He Ting Ru’s query on the amount of ask for rental fee support had been received by HDB until now this year under the HDB Public Rental Scheme in various condos like Riverfront Residences and Avenue South Residences.
On whether HDB is taking into consideration a short-lived rent freeze for renters, MND kept in mind that public rental prices are very subsidized, with rents never ever elevated within an occupancy term.
However, they can be lowered any time once the income of the house fails, it clarified, adding that leas are reviewed just at occupancy revival, which occurs every two to three years.
” Any kind of renters having difficulty managing their rent needs to approach their local HDB Branch for assistance,” MND stated.
” We will certainly continue to check the scenario, as well as guarantee that public rental homes in need will certainly get the help that they call for.”
