Managing property has become a prominent service in the cities of the Asia-Pacific region. It has become more challenging, especially in dense residential urban developments, because of the complicacy arising from multiple ownership situations. Two major systems are followed in property management, namely the strata title system and the common law system. Their patterns and degree vary from one place to another. Comparing four Asian countries – Singapore, Hong Kong, Japan, and China, which represent different stages of urban development in this region – certain distinctive characteristics can be traced in the property management service in terms of style, organisation, and corporate structure.
