Members of the public can obtain up-to-date information on pre-sale consents for uncompleted residential developments issued for the last six months, and cases pending approval as at the end of October, by calling the Legal Advisory and Conveyancing Office's hotline (2147 5475) or by visiting the Lands Department website (www.landsd.gov.hk). 

Intending purchasers are advised to carefully study details of the development and sales procedures, through information available from public advertisements, sales brochures and price lists released by the developer, before making a deposit for a purchase.
