     Following the ballot for the White Form Secondary Market Scheme 2022 (WSM 2022) drawn on June 13, 2022, the Hong Kong Housing Authority (HA) has completed detailed vetting of the eligibility of the applicants. Approval and confirmation letters for the 4 500 successful applicants (4 050 family applicants and 450 one-person applicants) will be issued tomorrow (November 10).
     "Each successful applicant will be issued with one Approval Letter and two Confirmation Letters. One Confirmation Letter is applicable to the HA's Home Ownership Scheme (HOS) Secondary Market while the other is applicable to the Hong Kong Housing Society's (HS) Flat-for-Sale Scheme (FFSS) Secondary Market. Within six weeks from the date of issue, holders of the Approval Letters may submit the Confirmation Letters to the HA and/or the HS for application for the Certificate of Eligibility to Purchase (CEP) to purchase a flat with premium not yet paid in the HA's HOS Secondary Market or the HS's FFSS Secondary Market. The fee for each CEP is HK$840," a spokesman for the HA said today (November 9).
     "The CEP is valid for 12 months from the date of issue and no extension will be granted upon its expiry. To complete the transaction, holders of the CEP need to apply for a Letter of Nomination from the HA or the HS after they have entered into a Provisional Agreement for Sale and Purchase (PASP). The applicant and the family member(s) listed in the application form must meet the eligibility criteria of the WSM 2022 from submission of the application form up to the date of signing the PASP," the spokesman said.
     The list of successful applications will be uploaded tomorrow to the website for WSM 2022 (
