Why Register Land

A land register is a set of land title records that can be searched to determine ownership. It also determines limits and restrictions on ownership, charges and other interests that may apply to a parcel of land.

A reliable land title system, supported by a rigorous survey structure, forms an essential foundation for economic and social prosperity.

Certainty and security in land ownership creates trust in an economy to:

  • Serve as a foundation for investments in land.
  • Enable development of a lending and credit market for transactions such as mortgages.
  • Support assessment and taxation of real property to fund necessary infrastructure and improvements.
