Ghana’s consolidated Land law in the offing

Ghana is on the path to having a consolidated Land law to regulate the sector.

Land experts, developers and other stakeholders have met in Accra to make inputs to the Land Bill, 2018, currently before the Select Committee on Lands and Forestry in Parliament.

Cost, title deed, registration, issues of lease hold and free hold are some of the problems associated with land acquisition.

The introduction of estate developers into the system has also come with its own challenges.

Land Ownership is either stool, government or family. Land security and litigation gave birth to land guards – a common phenomenon now in Ghana, where thugs terrorize people.

Since 1999, there have been efforts to have one effective law governing the land system in Ghana.

The Land Bill, 2018, seeks to improve access to land, ensure security of tenure and create efficient and effective institutions in Ghana.
