The Rental market in Hong Kong

Unfortunately, the IUT does not have any active member organizations in Hong Kong. Here, as a service to anyone interested, we have collected facts and information about the housing market in general, and rental market in particular. Most of the publications and links are based on other sources, and the authors themselves are responsible for that information.
