Building Maintenance Grant Scheme for Elderly Owners
 
Building Maintenance Grant Scheme for Elderly Owners 
In May 2008, HKHS accepted the invitation of the Government to implement Building Maintenance Grant Scheme for Elderly Owners (BMGS).  BMGS provides financial assistance to elderly owner-occupiers to repair and maintain their buildings and improve building safety.  Eligible applicants, who passed the means test, may get a maximum grant of HK$40,000.  The grant can also be used to repay the outstanding loan(s) with the Buildings Department, the HKHS or Urban Renewal Authority (URA) in relation to building maintenance.

Integrated Building Maintenance Assistance Scheme
Integrated Building Maintenance Assistance Scheme
Starting from April 2011, HKHS and URA have consolidated their respective schemes and rolled out a new one-stop Integrated Building Maintenance Assistance Scheme (IBMAS) jointly, which allows building owners to receive more comprehensive financial and technical support.  In response to the 2011 Urban Renewal Strategy which stated that building rehabilitation is one of the URA’s two core businesses, HKHS has gradually devolved its rehabilitation service boundary to URA starting from April 2013.  From 1 July 2015, URA has taken up the role to handle all new IBMAS applications over the whole territory in Hong Kong.  And HKHS continues to process the IBMAS applications received on or before 30 June 2015.

With effect from 9 July 2018, the URA had been fully responsible for handling all new MBISS applicants, including the areas originally served by HKHS, therby extending its service area for MBISS to cover the whole of Hong Kong.
 
Voluntary Building Assessment Scheme
Voluntary Building Assessment Scheme
In July 2012, HKHS developed and introduced the Voluntary Building Assessment Scheme (VBAS) with an aim to encourage building owners to properly manage and maintain their buildings on their own initiative.  Buildings certified under the VBAS will be recognized by the Building Authority for having fulfilled the requirements under the MBIS and Mandatory Window Inspection Scheme (MWIS) (in respect of windows in common parts only) within the respective inspection cycles.
