Second phase of Residential Properties (First-hand Sales) Ordinance exhibition set to launch
     The Sales of First-hand Residential Properties Authority staged the first phase of its roving exhibition to promote the Residential Properties (First-hand Sales) Ordinance at five locations in December 2016 and January 2017. The second phase of the roving exhibition, which has been well received by members of the public, will be launched next week and will be held in West Kowloon, Tuen Mun, Tsuen Wan and Causeway Bay.

     The Ordinance, which commenced full operation on April 29, 2013, aims to enhance the transparency and fairness of the sale of first-hand residential properties, strengthen consumer protection, and provide a level playing field for vendors of first-hand residential properties. The Ordinance sets out detailed requirements in relation to sales brochures, price lists, sales arrangements, register of transactions, show flats, viewing of completed residential properties, advertisements, and the mandatory provisions for the preliminary agreement for sale and purchase and agreement for sale and purchase for the sales of first-hand residential properties. It also provides for prohibitions against misrepresentation and the dissemination of false or misleading information.

     Visitors to the exhibition will gain a better understanding of the protection brought about by the Ordinance to purchasers of first-hand residential properties. Publicity videos on the Ordinance will also be shown and visitors will receive souvenirs by participating in a quiz game during the exhibition.

     Admission to the exhibition is free. Details are as follows:
