This is a Singapore government based website that provides you with all the information you need to know about buying, renting, subletting and leasing a flat. A 'Flat' is actually a Singapore-based term for public apartment or unit. The lease period for such flat is usually capped at 99 years which means you can only be holding this apartment for 99 years. It is probably enough for one life time, but is unlikely to last till the end of the second generation. Flats come in various sizes and categories - 1 Room, 2 Room, 3 Room, 4 Room, 5 Room, Executive Flat, HUDC (2 Story Flat) and Executive Condominium.
