Application for Subsidised Sale Flats Schemes
The Hong Kong Housing Authority (HA) has developed an electronic platform for receiving applications for various subsidised sale flats schemes, including the Home Ownership Scheme (HOS), White Form Secondary Market Scheme (WSM) and Green Form Subsidised Home Ownership Scheme since the second quarter of 2019. Citizens can submit applications via desktop and mobile devices, pay the application fee online and receive acknowledgements by email. In addition, with streamlined business processes, white-form applicants can concurrently apply for subsidised sale flats under the HOS and WSM using the same form while green-form applicants can indicate in the application form their consent to carry over their application information to the next subsidised sale flats exercise in case of an unsuccessful application without having to submit an application again.
This streamlining measure under the Programme will bring improvements around the following areas:
Streamlining Business Processes
Reducing Documentation Requirements
Improving Service Channels
