Introduction

Home Ownership Scheme (HOS) is designed to assist residents to buy their own home. HOS flats are subsidized public housing and the buying, selling and mortgage of these flats are subject to certain restrictions.

However, the Housing Authority accepted the government's recommendation on cessation of production and sale of HOS flats indefinitely from 2003 onwards. In January 2006, the HA decided to offer for sale in phases the unsold and returned HOS flats (collectively known as surplus HOS flats) from 2007 onwards.

In this section, you will be able to read about the purchase and sale of HOS flats, including eligibility and application details. Existing HOS flat owners can also browse for information on ownership and property management.
