The authoritative guide to the current practices of land administration in Hong Kong.

This book examines both the historical context and current practices of land administration in Hong Kong. Although Hong Kong has an open and business-friendly environment, it is underpinned by a socialist leasehold land tenure system. The government is landlord to virtually all land and so it plays a pivotal role in the administration of this scare, and therefore, valuable resource. As land administration is governed by private contract law rather than legislation, it is constantly evolving with the courts handing down significant decisions on a regular basis. Government practice has had to respond to this as well as the community’s concern over how best land can be administered. This new edition includes substantial and important updates that will ensure that the book will continue to be useful to both students and practitioners of surveying, architecture, planning, and law, as well as to the wider business and financial community.
