Home Affairs Department launches free pilot Building Management Dispute Resolution Service
     The Home Affairs Department (HAD) today (April 20) launched a two-year free pilot Building Management Dispute Resolution Service (BMDRS) to provide parties in building management disputes with an effective and efficient way to resolve their disputes.

     The BMDRS will be steered by a retired judge/judicial officer with relevant experience in dealing with building management cases.  Ms Tracy Chan Ling-ling, who was a Presiding Officer on the Lands Tribunal from April 2013 to December 2016 before her retirement, has been appointed as the Convenor of the BMDRS for a term of two years from April 20, 2018, to April 19, 2020, to steer the BMDRS.

     Under the BMDRS, depending on the wishes of the parties involved in the dispute and the circumstances of each case, the Convenor will assist the parties in identifying issues in their dispute, exploring and generating options, with a view to reaching a settlement of their dispute.  In the process, the Convenor may provide opinion and assessment, based on her experience and expertise, to enable the parties to better assess the strengths and weaknesses of their cases.  The Convenor may be assisted by mediators if necessary.

     The target beneficiaries of the BMDRS are owners, members of the management committee of owners' corporations or owners' committees, and persons acting on behalf of property management companies.

     The guide and application form for the BMDRS are available at the Home Affairs Enquiry Centres or can be downloaded from the HAD's dedicated website on building management.  To learn more about the Service, please contact the District Building Management Liaison Team of the respective District Offices.
