Part IVA of the Landlord and Tenant (Consolidation) Ordinance - Regulated Tenancies of Subdivided Units
Part IVA of the Landlord and Tenant (Consolidation) Ordinance (“the Ordinance”) has taken effect on 22 January 2022. Each regulated tenancy is for a term of 2 years. Unless under the circumstances specified in Part IVA of the Ordinance, the landlord cannot terminate the tenancy before the expiry of the term. A regulated cycle of tenancies for a subdivided unit (SDU) is to comprise 2 consecutive regulated tenancies (i.e. first term tenancy and second term tenancy) for the SDU. A tenant of a first term tenancy for an SDU is entitled to be granted a second term tenancy of the regulated cycle, thus enjoying a total of 4 years (first term of 2 years + second term of 2 years) of security of tenure.
