Microeconomic theory can illuminate various problems pertaining to urban economics. This paper focuses on problems related to property formation, especially adjustment of property boundaries. The aim of the paper is to provide models for analysis and discussions concerning (1) the incentives for property owners to adjust the boundary between their properties, (2) the purpose of legislation governing the design of properties and, finally, (3) the reasons for compulsory purchase. In connection to the latter part the issue of a fair and reasonable compensation is discussed.
