05 May Jordi’s HDB Defects Checklist (Free download)
Congratulations on getting the keys to your new home. The most important thing to do after collecting your keys is to ensure that there are no defects to the basic structural and renovation fittings. Many interior design companies do provide free HDB defects checking but it is equally feasible if you would like to do it yourself.
In the link below, you can download a copy of Jordi’s HDB defects checklist for your reference when doing the defects check. This defects checklist is useful for both HDB BTO and resale owners.
Time frame for reporting of defects (For BTO only)
All newly completed HDB flats are covered by a warranty within the 1-year Defects Liability Period (DLP). The DLP for new HDB flats is effective from the date of key collection.
It is necessary to inspect your new flat once you have collected your keys. Any items that require rectification should be reported before either 7 days of receiving the key or commencing renovation work.
