Assessment of Premium for Flat Sale of Housing Society / Housing Authority
At the end of 80s', the Hong Kong Housing Society (HKHS) started to develop “Flat-for-Sale Scheme” and “Sandwich Class Housing Scheme”. The completed flat units are sold to the tenants in public housing estates and others who are eligible for applying for “Home Ownership Scheme” (HOS) at a discount rate. The Housing Authority (HA) formally established the “HOS Secondary Market Scheme” (HOSSMS) in June 1997. It enables public housing tenants and ‘Green Form Certificate' holders to purchase flats sold under HOS / “Private Sector Participation Scheme” (PSPS) / “Tenants Purchase Scheme” (TPS) (hereinafter collectively referred to as HOS flats) with the date of first assignment from the third years onwards. Alienation of Restriction, which is similar to those of HOS flat units, exists on assignments of these types of flats. The owners of such flats should first settle the premium payment to the Housing Society in order to sell their flats in the open market. Our Registered Professional Surveyors provide premium assessment services for the owners applying for sale in open market.
