Letting Scheme for Subsidised Sale Developments with Premium Unpaid 2019 - Hong Kong Housing Society

The Hong Kong Council of Social Service

The Hong Kong Council of Social Service (“HKCSS”) is the partner of HS under the Scheme. HS will issue a “Certificate of Participation – Organisation” (“Organisation Certificate”) to HKCSS.  Under the relevant terms and conditions, HKCSS can rent subsidised sale flats with premium unpaid from owners holding valid Owner Certificate (“Owner Certificate Holders”) for the purpose of HKCSS’s “Community Housing Movement” and permit valid holders of Tenant Certificate (“Tenant Certificate Holders”) to use and occupy the said flats with premium unpaid (or certain bedroom(s) therein) under the terms and conditions of the Scheme. If the Flat belongs to HA’s subsidised sale developments, HKCSS must obtain the relevant “Nomination Certificate” issued by the HA for the Flat before entering into tenancy agreement with the owner.

HKCSS may arrange the relevant subsidised sale flats with premium unpaid (or certain bedroom(s) therein) to be used and occupied by Tenant Certificate Holders directly by way of license agreements.

For instance, HKCSS may collaborate with those non-governmental organisation (“Service Operators”) approved by HKCSS and HS, such that HKCSS and Service Operators (“HKCSS Group”) may permit Tenant Certificate Holders to use and occupy the relevant subsidised sale flats with premium unpaid (or certain bedroom(s) therein) as licensees by way of license agreements. However, Service Operators shall not enter into license agreements with Tenant Certificate Holders on their own.

In the event of any controversies or disputes amongst the owner, HKCSS, HKCSS Group and/or the Tenant Certificate Holder regarding the tenancy arrangement (including but not limited to the terms and conditions of the tenancy agreement and license agreement), it shall be handled by the respective parties of the agreement(s) on their own.
