Item description for Land Administration and Practice in Hong Kong by Roger Nissim...
Hong Kong is frequently acclaimed as being the most open and business user-friendly environment in the world. However, it is often forgotten or overlooked that this paragon of capitalism is founded, and indeed underpinned, by a socialist leasehold land tenure system. As the government is landlord to virtually all land, it plays a pivotal role in the administration of this scarce and therefore valuable resource. The purpose of this book is to explain both the historical development and the current practice of land administration.
Since publication of the book in 1998, it has been welcomed by students and practitioners of surveying, architecture, planning and law, and also by the wider business and financial community. In this second edition, the text has been thoroughly updated and should continue to be equally useful and popular.
