Buying a Flat under TPS

Buying a Flat under TPS

The Tenants Purchase Scheme (TPS) was introduced by the Hong Kong Housing Authority (HA) in 1998. In 2002, the Government reviewed its overall housing policy. In support of the Government's repositioned housing policy, the HA terminated the TPS after the sale of TPS Phase 6B in 2005 / 2006. According to prevailing policy, sitting tenants in TPS estates can still opt to purchase their flats.
