5 Things in Your HDB Flat

You Might Get into Trouble For Doing These

80% of Singaporeans live in HDB flats, and many of us grew up playing with the stray cats in the void deck and trying to imagine the lives of the people in the blocks opposite.

HDB living is part and parcel of life in Singapore and, for most young couples these days, the only remotely affordable way to become a home owner.

But it does come with a bunch of trade-offs. Here are five things that aren’t allowed in HDB flats:
  1. Owning a cat
  2. Running a business of a certain scale
  3. Renting out any part of your flat to tourists on Airbnb
  4. Playing musical instruments late at night
  5. Smoking in the corridor
