The ninth edition of the Hong Kong Conveyancing Law re-examines “property” in the traditional sense as assets become computerised and digitised. While land continues to be a fundamental part of property transactions in the world of conveyancing, traditional property principles, such as equitable relief against forfeiture of a licence, have been revisited and even revived.
Land Law in Hong Kong has, over the years, become the leading book on the subject. The new edition continues to explain key concepts of property law and the conveyancing process, and cover all essential topics, including major forms of land acquisition, protection of land ownership or interests, leases, licences, easements and mortgages.
