Selling a Flat

Home Ownership Scheme (HOS) / Tenants Purchase Scheme (TPS) flat owners, from the third year onwards from the date of first assignment, may sell their flats in the HOS Secondary Market to tenants of rental housing estates of the Housing Authority (HA) or the Housing Society (HS), authorised residents of Interim Housing managed by the HA, holders of Green Form Certificate issued by the Housing Department (HD) or holders of the Certificate of Eligibility to Purchase (White Form Status) issued by the HD without payment of a premium to the HA.

Flat owners may obtain application form of Certificate of Availability for Sale from District Tenancy Management Offices and the HOS Secondary Market Scheme Unit.

The completed application form should be submitted to the District Tenancy Management Office concerned together with an application fee and a copy of the Deed of Assignment.

The application fee shall be paid in the form of a crossed cheque / cashier order payable to the "Hong Kong Housing Authority" (existing charge is $810). A Certificate of Availability for Sale will be issued to the HOS / TPS flat owner after the HD has verified the application.

Ex-owners who have sold their flats, and their spouses are not eligible to join any of the subsidised housing scheme administered by the HA (including public rental housing, HOS, Private Sector Participation Scheme (PSPS), Home Assistance Loan Scheme (HALS), HOS Secondary Market Scheme, TPS) and any subsidised scheme administered by the HS.
