Promote “Hong Kong people’s flats" Let 80% of the public own property
The social climate has not yet eased. The Solidarity Hong Kong Fund announced yesterday that it has proposed ten housing policies.

Buying units at 25% discount, and new public housing can refer to the “rental and buy" model of Singapore HDB flats. The fund also recommended that the land price of the subsidized units be locked at the current level, no longer floating in the market, and it is recommended to substantially relax the second market restrictions.

The tension and tears caused by the anti-reforms have not improved
The Solidarity Hong Kong Fund, led by former Chief Executive Tung Chee-hwa, held a seminar yesterday to make recommendations on ten housing policies. Deputy Director-General Huang Yuanshan said that in order to increase the turnover of public housing and as a means of poverty alleviation, the Government should re-push the optimized “rental plan 2.0″ to allow existing public housing units to purchase at an average market price of about 25 percent. The units should also learn from the lessons of the previous rental schemes, deal with problems such as maintenance and boundary, and suggest that a platform should be set up to allow residents to handle the relocation.
It is recommended to relax resale restrictions
As for the newly built public housing estates, the Fund considers that the Singapore HDB mode can be used. Prospective tenants are free to choose to rent or purchase flats. They can also “rent before buying". It is believed that the change of public housing to “rental and purchase" will not have much impact on the waiting time of public housing. However, considering that the waiting time is now 5.4 years, he suggested that the Government can provide rent to some of the waiting parties. Allowances, and with the increase in overall supply, convert more private housing land into public housing.
In order to increase market supply, the fund proposes to lock the unsettled land price of the subsidized unit to the unit sale date, no longer fluctuate with the market, and proposes to substantially relax the resale restrictions of the second market. Second, the market is “flat for the building".
The fund also believes that the second market should be fully open for purchase by all white-listed households and public housing applicants. The annual limit will not be set up. The potential supply flats will cover nearly 800,000 unpaid land premiums. House unit.
For those who have exceeded the income of HOS, the fund proposes that the Government draw 20% of the annual land sales revenue to provide up to 30% interest-free loans to first-time home buyers under the age of 40, and to purchase units of up to $8 million. Together with the bank loan, the first-time person only needs to pay at least 10% of the first period to get on the train. Ye Wenzhao, director of fund land and housing research, said that there are 200,000 people eligible, and the annual quota can reach 10,000. The Director-General, Mr Andrew Li, also pointed out that the Government needs to think about how to resolve the deep-seated contradictions in the present community. The Foundation believes that a comprehensive amendment to the existing housing policy will enable 70% to 80% of the people to have permanent production and long-term stability and narrow the gap between the rich and the poor.
