Details :

The legal framework, land system, town planning and property market practice in Mainland China are significantly different from Hong Kong. Land laws and market practice in one city may vary slightly to other city in Mainland China. Hong Kong professional valuers would face various challenge in handling valuation of properties in mainland China.  Valuers have to conduct due diligent work in the course of valuation in order to provide useful professional advice.


This is particularly crucial in our field because, in property valuation, there is no single universal valuation approach but the best practice has to be followed. Each case has unique characteristics that warrant considerations. The complexities of the tasks are further compounded by the lack of transparence of market information and interpretation of regulations in mainland China. 


In this workshop, we will discuss what issues and factors to be considered in due diligent works on the process of actual and legal investigation, research, analysis and discovery into the relevant borrower, asset, sponsor and other principal parties typically undertaken by a prospective buyer, lender or investor prior to entering into property valuation in the PRC.
