THE PROBLEMS AND PROSPECTS OF LAND REGISTRATION IN NIGERIA: A CASE STUDY OF UYO LGA

 

CHAPTER ONE

INTRODUCTION

1.0 BACKGROUND OF STUDY

In almost every part of the world, land accessibility and acquisition for major projects are excessively time consuming, costly and administratively cumbersome. For developing countries in the world (Nigeria inclusive), the inaccessibility of land is rapidly becoming one of the most serious impediments to social and economic development to a large extent, this problem is attributed to the lack of readily available and accurate data describing the property boundaries and ownership.

In the normal sense, within our communities there must be and should always a difference between the methods of issuing the title to personal property. And those to real estate property. It is normally agreed that possession is the only evidence of title demanded by the seller of the personal property. But since possession of real estate is not necessarily evidence of ownership and since the ownership of real estate property involves the investment of huge capital and large sum of money, it has become necessary to device a system of tracing title to reach estate base on not only possession but upon a careful examination of the public records from which investors in real estate can extract details which will convince the buyers that their money is safe.

In most developing countries, the absence of land data has made the private sector to deviate from large-scale development for housing, industry, transportation. On the other hand, government and private individuals in most of the countries have not recognized the importance and significance of land registration, and this has given rise to avoidable law suit in our law courts. Thus, the purpose of this research is centered on appraising the problems associated with land registration and why titles still fail to arrest the situation and to suggest possible ways of improving the system using (UGIS) as case study.

STATEMENT OF RESEARCH PROBLEM

Lack of true and exact description of legal right in land, absence of protection of right for all classes of land holders. However, this research work intends to examine why in the study area, land and refortifying its disputes are the problems associated with non registration of title as enumerated above.
