    5 June 2015

    (Hong Kong, 3 June 2015)     RICS (Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors) recommends five experts in Hong Kong land matters to the Government as arbitrators for the Pilot Schemefor Arbitration on Land Premium (“the Pilot Scheme”). All of them are seasoned field experts and are under stringent regulation by RICS’ valuer registration.


    Last year the government introduced the Pilot Scheme to facilitate land premium settlement between land owners and the Government in order to expedite land supply.  Qualified arbitrators require at least 10 years of experience in land matters and professional valuation, and be a Registered Professional Surveyor.

    The five RICS recommended experts in land matters for arbitration are chartered surveyors who have 24 years or more of experience in land matters, and have been registered as RICS Registered Valuers. The RICS Valuer Registration is a mandatory regulatory measure to chartered surveyors who practise valuation using RICS’ global valuation standards.
