The Hong Kong Housing Authority (HA) launched the Interim Scheme of Extending the Home Ownership Scheme (HOS) Secondary Market to White Form (WF) Buyers (the Interim Scheme) in January 2013. Eligible WF applicants allocated with quotas may apply for the Certificate of Eligibility to Purchase (CEP) from the HA and/or the Hong Kong Housing Society (HS) for purchase of a flat in the HA's HOS Secondary Market or the HS's Flat-for-Sale Scheme (FFSS) Secondary Market without the need to pay premium.The first round of the Interim Scheme with a quota of 5000 was completed in April 2015. The second round of the Interim Scheme with a quota of 2500 was launched in August 2015 and it was also completed in May 2017. Over 4000 WF applicants achieved home ownership through the two rounds of the Interim Scheme.
The HA endorsed regularising the Interim Scheme as the White Form Secondary Market Scheme (WSM) in November 2017. The quota for WSM 2018 is 2500. The application period is from 29 March 2018 to 11 April 2018. Successful applicants can apply for the purchase of a flat with premium not yet paid in the Secondary Market of the HA or the FFSS of the HS.
