Land Registration System

Countries:

ICF worked with the Government of Sierra Leone on a project that aimed to reduce the time and cost of land registration by refining and streamlining procedures, create an electronic database for faster and cheaper verification of land titles, stimulate the land market and facilitate access to credit.

 As a result of the project, the number of days to register a land property in Sierra Leone shall be as follows: 16 days for registration of private survey plans, 19 days for residential leases and 16 days for commercial leases (as opposed to 235 days in 2008).  The amount of procedures has been trimmed by 25%, from 8 to 6, whilst the percentage levied off the property value decreases from 15 to 10 percent.
