[POLICY BRIEF] Addressing Challenges to Property Registration in Ghana


Over the years, land policies and reforms implemented to facilitate land administration have not delivered a robust property registration system. These have resulted in title insecurity, high cost of registration, encroachment, land disputes, multiple registrations of residential lands, and general land market indiscipline. These inefficiencies have stifled business development and land-related investments. This brief examines the challenges to property registration, land management, and recommend critical reforms and policy trajectories to guarantee sustainable land management in Ghana. The findings suggest that the surest way to creating an efficient and transparent land market is through enhanced access to information, decentralized formal property registration systems, and building the relevant infrastructure to record and protect land information.
