Flats sold under the Home Ownership Scheme (HOS) / Private Sector Participation Scheme (PSPS) / Buy or Rent Option (BRO) / Mortgage Subsidy Scheme (MSS) and Melody Garden in the Middle Income Housing Scheme (MIH) since the launch of HOS Phase 3B in May 1982, flats sold under the Tenants Purchase Scheme (TPS) since launch of its first phase in 1998 and flats sold under the Green Form Subsidised Home Ownership Pilot Scheme (GSH) launched in 2016 are subject to alienation restrictions under the Schedule to the Housing Ordinance (Cap. 283). Owners must first pay a premium to the Hong Kong Housing Authority (HA) for removal of the alienation restrictions before they can sell, let, assign or otherwise alienate their flats in the open market.
