FEHD terminates tenancy of market stall in Southern District

‚Äč     The Food and Environmental Hygiene Department (FEHD) said today (October 8) that it has terminated the tenancy agreement of a market stall at Stanley Waterfront Mart in Southern District as the tenant breached the tenancy agreement by subletting the market stall, and the market stall was resumed today.

     An FEHD spokesman said, "The tenancy agreement concerned stipulates that a public market stall tenant 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 tenant concerned had sublet the stall. Hence, the FEHD terminated the tenancy agreement according to the above-mentioned clause and the market stall concerned was 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.
