The Law On Land Acquisition by Pang Kong Leng
The Law On Land Acquisition by Pang Kong Leng, Su Tiang Joo
|Author||Pang Kong Leng and Su Tiang Joo|
"No person shall be deprived of property except in accordance with law," according to the Federal Constitution, and "no law shall provide for the compulsory acquisition or use of property without adequate compensation." Landowners must therefore be aware of their rights in order to ensure that they are protected and adequately paid in the case of forcible acquisition. The underlying legal jurisprudence of compulsory land acquisition in Malaysia, as well as the procedural pre-requisites, are comprehensively set out in 'The Law on Land Acquisition,' which is based on the Land Acquisition Act 1960, including the recent amendments via the Land Acquisition (Amendment) Act 2016. The book also examines both public and unreported case authorities from January 1, 2018, that have resulted in the development of legislation in this area.
