This chapter examines the factors that impact on an individual homeowner’s decision to participate in the management of their multi-owned property in Hong Kong, China. Based on a structured questionnaire survey of multi-owned property (MOP) homeowners, an analytic model was tested using a path-analytic technique. The results show that apart from perceived value of good housing management outcomes, individual homeowners’ perceptions of self-, group- and proxy-efficacies are all significant determinants of their participative behaviour. Moreover, proxy-efficacy belief was found to exert a strong mediating effect on the relationship between group-efficacy belief and participative behaviour. This tripartite system of efficacy beliefs may have important implications for the promotion of resident participation in MOP management.
