Tong land and the Limitation Ordinance

Tsang Kwong Kuen v Hau Wai Keung Gaius ([2013] HKEC 1920, CFI) concerned an unsuccessful adverse possession claim to Tong land. The court found that the plaintiff had not been in possession and this was really the end of the matter. In any event, the judgment contained a reminder that a new equitable interest is created with the birth of each member of a Tong. As a result, the limitation period runs anew when that member attains his majority ([50]). The claim also failed on this basis ([51]).
