    Subletting period
    The minimum subletting period for each subtenant must be 6 months per application. You are not allowed to sublet your flat or bedroom on a short-term basis as it may disrupt the living environment and pose security concerns for our residents.

    The subletting period is indicated in the approval letter, up to a maximum of 3 years if all the subtenants are Singaporeans or Malaysians. The maximum is capped at 1.5 years for non-Malaysian non-citizen subtenants. Non-citizens refer to Singapore Permanent Residents and foreigners. You are required to reapply for approval each time you sublet your flat or renew the subletting application.

    Oh, I meant the current cap of Max 9 tenants in HDB... Maybe down to 6 soon like Private?

    The new rule will also affect home-sharing such as Airbnb. The URA is studying the option of creating a new category of private homes that will allow short-term rentals.
    The logic behind the move if consistent should already outlaw airbnb.
