HONG KONG, 11 FEBRUARY 2009 The Hong Kong government has today launched the 24 hour Property Information Online service for open browsing of the city's domestic properties.
Offered by the Rating and Valuation Department Hong Kong, the online property service offers information of 1.5 million domestic properties. Available property information includes saleable area, age, zoning and the aligned property address reference of the Land Registry.
Users can search properties by entering the name(s) of the developer, building, street or village, building number, lot details, the department's assessment number, or the land registry's property reference number.
The search fee is HK$12 (US$1.5) per record. Frequent users can apply for subscriber accounts at HK$25 (US$3.2) per month for one login ID and supplementary login ID at HK$10 (US$0.1) each per month.
The 2009-10 valuation list and government rent roll, to be declared in March, will also be added to this new online platform and will be displayed up to 31 May.
The service is accessible through the Rating & Valuation Department's website.
