Public Consultation on
Review of the Building Management Ordinance

Ownership of private properties comes with both rights and responsibilities. The Building Management Ordinance (BMO) (Chapter 344) provides a legal framework for owners to organise themselves to discharge their building management responsibilities. To cope with the changing needs and circumstances of building management, the Government has established the Review Committee on the Building Management Ordinance (the Review Committee) to conduct a comprehensive review of the BMO.

In the light of the Review Committee’s recommendations, the Government would like to consult the public on a number of legislative and administrative proposals which may help address the main concerns raised by the public in recent years, including the disputes arising from large-scale maintenance projects, use of proxies at owners’ corporation meetings, appointment and remuneration of deed of mutual covenant managers, etc.

Members of the public are invited to give their comments on the issues and proposals set out in the consultation document, as well as other suggestions on whether and how other provisions of the BMO could be enhanced. Comments can be sent in writing to Home Affairs Department on or before 2 February 2015
