FEHD terminates tenancy of market stalls in Yuen Long
     ​The Food and Environmental Hygiene Department (FEHD) said today (October 31) that it has terminated the tenancy agreements of two market stalls at Tai Kiu Market in Yuen Long today as the tenant breached the tenancy agreements by subletting the market stalls.

     An FEHD spokesman said, "The concerned tenancy agreement stipulates that public market stall tenants shall carry on business as a sole proprietor at the stall and shall not assign, mortgage, charge, demise, sublet or part with the possession of the stall or transfer any of his rights or obligations under the agreement or enter into any agreement so to do. The FEHD may terminate the tenancy agreement for breach of this clause and enter into possession of the stall."

     Detailed investigations and evidence collected by the FEHD proved that the concerned tenant had sublet the stalls. Hence, the FEHD terminated the tenancy agreements according to the abovementioned clause and the market stalls concerned were resumed.

     The spokesman reminded FEHD market stall tenants to strictly observe clauses of the tenancy agreement, including refraining from subletting market stalls, or the tenancy agreement will be terminated.
