PROCESSING OF DOCUMENTS AT THE LAND TITLE REGISTRY.
The Land Title Registry wishes to inform the General Public that in accordance with PNDCL. 152, registration of titles in a declared district (Greater Accra Region/Kumasi District) is compulsory. The public should take note of the following before lodging document/instruments at The Land Title Registry.
In accordance with Articles (258(1 276(3) of the Constitution, all transactions on Government/Vesting Lands and Stool Lands should be submitted to the Lands Commission Secretariat for due compliance with the relevant provisions before lodgement at the Registry.
All grant and derivative interests arising Government/Public or Vested land such as Tema Development Corporation and State Housing Corporation should submit their documents to the Lands Commission Secretariat before lodging at The Land Title Registry.
Heads of families are also encouraged to deposit their proprietary plans as well as signatories to their their grants with the Land Title Registry. This would enable the Registry to know the area of jurisdiction of individual families and the capacity of the grantors.
The Land Title Registry does not confer interest/title in land, it only registers the interest/title already created. Land owners should therefore ensure that in preparation of their parcel plans, the plot sizes reflect the acreage that is in the document/instrument and its acreage would be deemed fraudulent.
Ground rents should also be duly paid up with the Administrator of Stool Lands or the appropriate agency. All property owners are encouraged to take note so that the transactions pertaining to land are processed in an orderly manner
