HOS Secondary Market
The Hong Kong Housing Authority (HA) formally implemented the HOS Secondary Market Scheme (HOSSMS) in June 1997. It enables public housing households and Green Form Certificate holders to purchase flats sold under Home Ownership Scheme (HOS) / Private Sector Participation Scheme (PSPS) / Tenants Purchase Scheme (TPS), later it also includes flats sold under Green Form Subsidised Home Ownership Pilot Scheme / Green Form Subsidised Home Ownership Scheme (GSH) (hereinafter collectively referred to as SSF). The launch of the HOSSMS increases the turnover of SSFs so as to satisfy the society's need of subsidised home ownership. Apart from providing more choices for public rental housing households and Green Form Certificate holders to own a home, more public rental housing can be recovered for allocation to families in need.
Transactions in the HOS Secondary Market are similar to that in the open market. The purchaser and the seller may negotiate on their own or make the transaction through an estate agent. Purchasers of flats in the HOS Secondary Market will assume the liability to pay the premium if they sell, rent out or assign their flats in whatever manner in the open market in the future.
In response to the aspirations of low-and middle-income families to buy their own homes, the HA launched an Interim Scheme to extend the HOS Secondary Market to White Form buyers in 2013 and 2015, and endorsed in November 2017 to regularise the Interim Scheme as the White Form Secondary Market Scheme (WSM) with effect from 2018.
