From 1 January 2018, resale flat sellers must register their intent to sell via HDB Resale first.
Sellers must have met the Minimum Occupation Period (MOP) before granting the OTP to Buyers.
The MOP is calculated from the date you collect the keys to the flat. It excludes any period that the flat is not occupied by the flat owners, such as when the whole flat is rented out or when there is any infringement of the flat lease.
