The Lands Commission says it will from Friday, October 1, 2021, have a one-stop verification system for all land searches conducted at the Commission.
According to the Commission, reports from its all divisions will be put into one separate report.
It made this known in a press statement issued on Thursday, September 23, 2021, and signed by its Executive Secretary, James E.K. Dadson.
“The public is hereby notified that from October 1, 2021, the Lands Commission, Greater Accra Region will no longer issue separate search reports from its divisions i.e. Public and Vested Land Management Division (PVLMD), Land Registration Division (LRD) and Survey and Mapping Division (SMD).”
“Reports from these divisions will be consolidated into one Lands Commission search report.”
It explained that, “a search report from Lands Commission on a parcel of the land provides full information relating to that parcel in a single search report instead of three separate reports.”
The Commission has thus urged the public to use its portal in making search applications.
“Furthermore, from October 1, 2022, all applications for searches should be submitted online through hpptps://onlineservices.lc.gov.gh”.
What is the current system?
Currently, one has to verify and conduct searches at the Public and Vested Lands Management Division search, Land Registration Division Search, Survey and Mapping Division Search, and Land Valuation Division Search.
This system has however been described by many as cumbersome.
