Q:

What is a Form CR109 (Notice of New Letting or Renewal Agreement)?

 
 

A:

Under the Landlord and Tenant (Consolidation) Ordinance, a landlord of a domestic tenancy must lodge with the Commissioner of Rating and Valuation (CRV) a notice (Form CR109) within one month of signing of a new tenancy or reaching agreement on a renewal. A fee of $310 will be payable in case of late submission. The landlord shall not be entitled to maintain an action to recover the rent unless the notice is endorsed by CRV.
A Form CR109 may be submitted online. Alternatively, it may be downloaded and submitted to CRV by post or in person.

Q:

What is a Form R1A (Requisition for Particulars of Tenements)?

 
 

A:

The Commissioner of Rating and Valuation is empowered to collect by requisition rental particulars for the purpose of carrying out the provisions of the Rating Ordinance, the Government Rent (Assessment and Collection) Ordinance and the Landlord and Tenant (Consolidation) Ordinance. A Form R1A seeks to collect up-to-date tenancy particulars to facilitate RVD in conducting the annual revaluation and compiling statistics. It can be used for reporting tenancy particulars to RVD.

Q:

After completing the application for stamping of tenancy agreement, which form should be used for reporting tenancy particulars to RVD, a Form CR109 or a Form R1A?

 
 

A:

For a domestic tenancy, submit a Form CR109 which, upon endorsement by CRV, entitles the landlord to maintain an action to recover the rent under the tenancy. If a Form CR109 is submitted to RVD, there is no need to submit a Form R1A.

For a non-domestic tenancy, submit a Form R1A to report the tenancy particulars.
