About Us

The Independent Checking Unit (ICU) is set up directly under the Office of the Permanent Secretary for Transport and Housing (Housing). The ICU is delegated the authority by the Director of Buildings to exercise building control on the sold properties of the Housing Authority (HA) under the Buildings Ordinance (BO), including the properties sold under the Home Ownership Scheme and Tenant Purchase Scheme, and the properties in public rental housing with divested retail and car-parking facilities. The ICU also exercises administrative building control on the HA’s new development works and existing buildings in line with the BO and the Buildings Department’s practice.

If you search for information on properties that are not included in the above building types, e.g. other private buildings not developed or owned by the Housing Authority, you may access more information on the website of the Buildings Department.
