What if the seller does not turn up for the First Appointment?
Firstly, consult the HDB in charge of your case. If the seller does not turn up, the resale transaction will usually be cancelled. The First Appointment date may also be pushed back. After it is cancelled, HDB generally takes a hands-off approach. However, the buyer may still have a legal remedy. Prior to the First Appointment, the buyer and the seller would have an option-to-purchase (OTP) agreement. The buyer may be able to sue the seller for the breach of this contract. You would have to consult a lawyer regarding the specific merits of your case.
