The LCSD emphasises that the licensed stalls are solely intended for the sale and promotion of the permitted commodities. No other activities are allowed within the licensed area. In the event that the LCSD deems any activity conducted by the licensee to be unlawful, immoral, or incompatible with the objectives of the HKFS, they reserve the right to direct the licensee to cease such activities immediately, and the licensee must comply accordingly.

Licensees who successfully secure a stall through the auction must comply with all stipulations and provisions stated in the licence agreement. Failure to do so may result in consequences such as being prohibited from future bidding, receiving a default notice with a deduction from the security deposit, termination of the agreement, and prompt vacation of the stall.
