Product description

Building Management in Hong Kong - Third Edition 

Since its first edition, Building Management in Hong Kong has emerged as the leading resource for anyone dealing with this subject. The chapters concentrate on the relationships that dominate in the management of buildings such as those between manager and owners, government and owners, and owner and owner. The text contains a narrative introduction to each relationship, and is designed for laymen as well as lawyers. This is followed by analyses of practical questions and problem areas in which selected areas of legal difficulty are explored in more detail. Updated to include an extensive new section on disputes between neighbours, as well as extensive revision of areas including the narrative on termination of the deed of mutual covenant, indemnity of members of management committees, ‘bid-rigging’, injunctions to enforce covenants.

The third edition of Building Management in Hong Kong will be of use and interest to members of management and owners’ committees as well as housing and estate managers, government officials with responsibility for building management, students, lawyers and other land professionals.


Hong Kong Tenancy Law - Sixth Edition

This popular text book, now more than 30 year’s old, continues to be addressed by all those with an interest in landlord and tenant matters: laymen as well as lawyers, and land professionals. The aim as before is to summarise the law with as much accuracy as is consistent with being intelligible for a wider audience.

For this sixth edition of Hong Kong Tenancy Law, revisions have been made to parts of the text concerning oral tenancy agreements, short leases, registration of leases, the term of the lease, exemption clauses, the tenant’s representative on management committees, repairs, relief against forfeiture, vacant possession and damages. An entirely new section deals with rental levels, in Hong Kong and why they are historically so high.  It also sets out the special features of the landlord and tenant relationship in Hong Kong. Numerous recent court decisions are referred to.

The book explains the law in simple and lucid fashion. Areas of practical importance are emphasised, ensuring that the text is of particular relevance for legal practitioners.
