Tenancy Matters

The Rating and Valuation Department (“RVD”) administers the Landlord and Tenant (Consolidation) Ordinance (Cap.7) (“LTCO”). LTCO concerns matters relating to landlords and tenants, tenancies and related matters.

The Landlord and Tenant (Consolidation) (Amendment) Ordinance 2021 which has taken effect on 22 January 2022 is to regulate tenancies of subdivided units (“SDU”s). The main provisions are in Part IVA of LTCO. Other parts of LTCO in force include Part III which concerns distress for rent; Part IV which applies to domestic premises; and Part VI which relates to small tenements recovery.

RVD provides the following services: free advisory and mediatory services to landlords and tenants on tenancy matters; endorsing the Notice of Tenancy and processing forms; handling complaints about tenancy matters; and taking enforcement action against the offences under the provisions. For assistance, you may contact RVD or use RVD’s service on tenancy matters at the Lands Tribunal and five District Offices.
