Event overview

As a result of the dramatic increase in property prices in Hong Kong, there has been significant increase in land disputes in recent years, in particular in the form of adverse possession cases.

Hong Kong is also unique in the sense that there is a clear demarcation of categories of land in the form of rural land and multi-storey properties which has culminated into distinct branches in case law and authorities in the context adverse possession cases.As adverse possession, by its nature requires parties, deal with evidence that spans many years there has been a greater need for land survey expert evidence in the Hong Kong Courts.

In this seminar, basic principles of adverse possession will be discussed with analysis of recent case law and highlighting the Hong Kong Court’s approach to land survey expert evidence, including the use of aerial photos, survey sheets and evidence of cultivation.

We will also be discussing tactics and strategies commonly adopted by legal teams to undermine land survey evidence and the proper way to deal with such methods. Further, how land survey expert is best presented to support or resist a claim for adverse possession will also be dealt with.
