The bundling of telecoms services into flat owners' management fees was not endorsed by the property managers' trade group, its president said yesterday. Suen Kwok-lam's comments were an attempt to draw a line between the Hong Kong Association of Property Management Companies and its member Citybase Property Management. Citybase has been including broadband and telephone service charges in its management fees at Cheung Sha Wan's Banyan Garden since last year. Mr Suen said Citybase was the only member of the group doing so. The association represents 88 property management companies, most of which handle private flats. Citybase came under fire this week after a government investigation found it had created an unfair playing field for telecoms providers by granting the service contract to Hutchison Global Communications. Consumer advocates pointed to the risk of Cheung Kong (Holdings) monopolising the market by granting the service contract at its properties to companies under its control - in this case HGC. Mr Suen, who is also executive director of Henderson Land Development, said the association did not support the bundling practice because it would be unfair to residents who did not use the service. The association initiated a meeting with the Consumer Council yesterday to state its position.
