Hi, what can I do for you?
HKHS
 
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.

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.

Mandatory Building Inspection Subsidy Scheme
Mandatory Building Inspection Subsidy Scheme
To support the Government’s Mandatory Building Inspection Scheme (MBIS) being introduced on 30 June 2012, HKHS and URA launched the Mandatory Building Inspection Subsidy Scheme (MBISS) in August 2012 to provide financial assistance to eligible owners to comply with their statutory requirement in the first prescribed mandatory inspection to the building’s common areas.

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.
