Subdivision of a Flat . Common types of Unauthorised Building Works (UBWs)

Subdivision of a flat into the commonly-known "subdivided units"

It generally refers to the subdivision of a flat as shown on the approved plan of a building into two or more individual units. If the building works associated with the subdivision of a flat are carried out in contravention of the requirements of the Buildings Ordinance (BO), these unauthorised building works (UBWs) may affect the fire safety and structural safety of the building, and endanger the life or property of the occupants. If you are an occupant of a "subdivision unit" or intend to rent a "subdivided unit", you should recognise the irregularities found in a "subdivided unit" which contravene the BO to enable you to secure a safe and suitable unit to live in.
