Homeless in Singapore

Singapore is a nation of homeowners, but some people are falling through the cracks.

    Singapore is a nation of homeowners, largely thanks to a comprehensive system of government subsidised housing.

    But despite the system's overall success, the strict rules also mean that some people fall through the cracks.

    For example, anyone selling their government subsidised house is not allowed to rent one within 30 months. That policy has had unexpected repercussions for divorcees, as Laura Kyle reports.
