It may be possible to get a public housing apartment called HDB (Housing Board Development), It is important that you rent an APPROVED HDB apartment as there are many unapproved ones.

To tell whether the HDB apartment is approved or not, ask the agent or advertiser. If the "agent" tells you that "one room is locked" that means you cannot use that room. The Singapore Government presently disallows renting of the whole unit, without its approval in writing.

Laws breached if you rent unapproved HDB apartments are:

The HDB lessees or tenants will have breached the Agreement for Lease as well as the Housing & Development Act, Section 61(1). You will probably have to vacate at short notice and await surprise "checks" by the HDB officials if there are complaints.
