Wah! Titank, you are asking a very difficult question.

Usually, laymen like me won't be privy to such information, and for those who have such information, they are not supposed to disclose anything. :roll:

But, generally, SERS apply to old flats. In addition, look at the shap and structure of the flat, and ask this question - is it possible to add another room? If not, the likelihood for SERS will be higher, I think.

MUP - is it like you get additional lifts and room?

If that's what they did, unlikely for them to demolish the flats in near future

Agree with Full.Cream. The place that my parents used to stay was in the pioneer batch of MUP. They added an " extra" room and its been 10 years since..no news of en-bloc.

Only add lift but there is no room! I heard some estates undergone MUP yet also being selected for SER's. :lol:

If add lift only then it's LUP rather than MUP. My block is more than 20 years old and underwent LUP a few years ago.

If MUP, chances not that high. My dad's flat went under LUP and about 10-12 years later finally SERS. You're talking about few years ago, so hope not that great.

Seems like the main criteria would be whether they need the piece of land the flat is on. if so, congratulations. Else, forget it.

Enjoy living where you are now - the replacement flats may not be good sized (nowadays most flats are TINY), overpriced, or could be in lousy location.

I think another factor is the plot ratio of the current flats. Just look at Pinnacle@Duxton. The piece of land used to only have two blocks of flat with about 12 storeys each. See what it is now? Seven blocks of flats with 48 storeys each! :!:

I agree. If they decide to put my block under SERS, I will be very unhappy cos I chose a resale flat in a (more) mature estate so that my flat will not be tiny and in an ulu place.
