Building Number

The Rating and Valuation Department is responsible for allocating building numbers throughout Hong Kong and ensuring display of correct building numbers. Under the Buildings Ordinance (Cap. 123), the Commissioner of Rating and Valuation is empowered to serve an order requiring the owner of a building to mark the building with the allocated building number.

A person who, without reasonable excuse, fails to comply with the display order issued by the Commissioner of Rating and Valuation under Section 32(2) of the Buildings Ordinance, commits an offence under Section 40(1C) of the Buildings Ordinance, with the maximum penalty being a fine of $2,000 and imprisonment for 6 months.
