Product description

Butterworths Hong Kong Building Law Handbook (3rd Edition) provides an authoritative guide to the latest developments in the rapidly evolving area of Building Law and practice in Hong Kong. This handbook makes available in a convenient form the full text of the Buildings Ordinance (Cap 123) together with section-by-section annotations. The annotations include amendment notes, carefully researched case authorities, expert commentary and other authoritative material presented in a concise and succinct style. In addition, cross-references are made to subsidiary legislation and to tables and forms where necessary.

The third edition also includes the Subsidiary Legislation Cap 123A - Cap 123O. This handbook is the most informed and handy guide available to the area of Hong Kong building law and lays out all information ever likely to be required on the Ordinance. This series has been cited with authority in numerous court cases in the Hong Kong Court of First Instance, Court of Appeal, and Court of Final Appeal.

Since the last edition of this book, the Buildings Ordinance (Cap 123) has been amended with changes made to Sections 2, 2A, 3, 4, 5, 5A, 5AA, 7, 8, 8A-8D, 8F-8G, 11, 17, 24C, 27A, 29A, 36, 36A-36I, 38, 39A-39B, 40, 46, 53E, 53H-53J, Schedule 4 and Schedule 5 of the Ordinance. These amendments are incorporated in this edition so that it will serve as the most up-to-date reference guide for practitioners, legal advisers, students, and anyone interested in the laws governing the planning, design and construction of buildings and associated works in Hong Kong.
