Types of Land

Before you go ahead to register land, it is advisable to follow due diligence to avoid land disputes. Confirm these two points before you go ahead with land registration.

  1. Make sure you are dealing with the rightful owner of the land. One who is recognized by law. You can conduct an official search in land records as well as make inquiries in the neighbourhood.  Do an original survey of the land to be sure the plan used for the search is for the exact land of interest.
  2. Engage the services of a qualified land surveyor. Only surveyors with licenses can legally undertake cadastral surveys.
