The Law On Land Acquisition (HC) - CLJ Publication
The Federal Constitution provides that ‘no person shall be deprived of property save in accordance with law’; and ‘no law shall provide for the compulsory acquisition or use of property without adequate compensation’. It is therefore imperative for landowners to understand that their rights are well protected and to be adequately compensated in the event of compulsory acquisition. The Land Acquisition (Amendment) Act 2016 which came into force on 1 December 2017 aims to improve the existing land acquisition procedures in Malaysia. The amendments cover, amongst others, the acquisition of underground land, acquisition of strata title properties, temporary occupation or use of land under the town and country planning laws, compensation etc. ‘The Law on Land Acquisition’ sets out the underlying legal jurisprudence of compulsory land acquisition in Malaysia and the procedural pre-requisites in light of the latest amendment. The book also highlights landmark decisions to reflect the evolving nature of the law in this area. The chapters included in this book, amongst others, covers Enquiry Procedure, Payment of Compensation, Principles for Determination of Compensation, Challenge against Land Acquisition Exercise, Temporary Occupation or Use of Land, etc.
