The Lands Commission says it will from October 1, 2021 have a one stop verification system for all searches conducted at the commission.

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 been described by many as cumbersome.

A statement signed by the Acting Executive Secretary of the Commission on Thursday, September 23, 2021, said it is currently starting in the Greater Accra region.

He said the move is to ensure that a search report from the Lands Commission on a parcel of land provides full information relating to that parcel in a single report instead of three separate reports.
