    First, the ownership of your HDB will be distributed in accordance with the Intestate Succession Act should you pass away without a valid Will. Under the Act, for owners who are single with deceased parents and no spouse and children, 100% of the ownership of the flat will go to the owner's sibling(s). Subsequently, if your younger brother sells the inherited flat, he is entitled to the full proceeds of the sale.
