The Government has set up the Task Force in 2020, to carry out feasibility study of tenancy control of subdivided units (SDUs) in Hong Kong. The study will be completed and the result submitted to the government this year.

In order to promote understanding and discussion on SDU Tenancy Control in the social service sector, the Council is going to organize a policy seminar on ‘Tenancy Control on Subdivided units’, by inviting speakers to offer different analyses or suggestions on the subject. The policy seminar will discuss the market situation of the grassroots tenants, the possible impacts on the SDU rental market, supply and quality of SDU housing, as well as the advocacy strategies within and outside of the LegCo.
