Each piece of landed property – whether it is a piece of land or a flat – has its own unique characteristic and history. Sometimes, this may sometimes cause difficulties for the parties involved in the transactions.
Whether commonly heard, or personally experienced, you may have come across with:
Unauthorized Building Works / Illegal Structures
Unclear Delineation of Common Areas
Easement and Right of Way dispute
User Restriction and Town Planning Control
Lost, missing or improperly executed title deeds
Onerous terms in Deed of Mutual Covenants
Lands held by T’so, T’ong, Clan or Family
Establishment of Incorporated Owners in village houses
Creation of Deed of Mutual Agreement in village houses
Stamp Duty Assessment
In particular, land in the New Territories is a highly specialized area due to a different land administration system in the past. The implementation of the “Small House Policy” has been a problematic area of law and may pose various risks to potential owners.
No matter it is your dream house for the first time ever, or yet another landed property in your investment portfolio, from the very moment of negotiation, there are already many issues which require careful analysis and quick decision-making.
