Praise for Landed Hong Kong

“Owning your property is critical in Hong Kong, and a major commitment postponed for too long by many. Investing in property once you understand Hong Kong can provide handsome returns. Landed Hong Kong—written by a person who has done it himself—helps you keep your costs down, avoid pitfalls and recognize opportunities.”

Paul Zimmerman

District Councillor, Pokfulam, and CEO, Designing Hong Kong

“Dillon’s book offers a wealth of up-to-date information on the context and specifics of Hong Kong’s real estate environment. Especially useful are his clear and comprehensive lists of questions that simply must be asked before buying or renovating property in Hong Kong—guaranteed to reduce headaches!”

Richard Vuylsteke

President, American Chamber of Commerce in Hong Kong

“It is not Hong Kong property law that the newcomer finds perplexing, but Hong Kong property practice. Landed succinctly demystifies the issues and processes.”

Hilary Cordell

Cordells, Specialists in Real Estate Law

“Hong Kong veteran Christopher Dillon gives readers the good, the bad and the ugly about buying and owning property. Dillon has done his homework, some of which involved paying tuition at the school of hard knocks, and his experiences are not only great stories but highly educational. I found the first edition of Landed Hong Kong invaluable when our company bought its office in Central in 2010. This new, expanded edition builds on strong foundations to provide a wealth of new insights about the Hong Kong property roller coaster.”

Mark L. Clifford

Author of The Greening of Asia: The Business Case for Solving Asia’s Environmental Emergency

Landed won’t make Hong Kong real estate any less expensive, but it is guaranteed to eliminate a lot of the guesswork, some of the cost and a large amount of the pain of being your own landlord.”

David O’Rear

Chief Economist, The Hong Kong General Chamber of Commerce

“A long-awaited manual to the often difficult to understand Hong Kong property market. Dillon clearly summarizes every aspect of the market and its mix of new and archaic regulations that have resulted in the shape of our property market today. A must-have for everyone–whether tenant, landlord or long-time Hong Kong investor.”
