STANDARD PROCEDURES FOR LAND AQUISITIONING IN GHANA

Introduction

Ghana is blessed with immense dynamics of land forms. In some areas they are flat, hilly and in some places you can span along a wider stretch of folds and faults in an ascending or descending order. Most of the mountainous areas have numerous valleys.

You can get fine areas for industrial, commercial, farming, residential and recreational purposes.

It is therefore very prudent that one gets fore-knowledge at hand before investing in land in Ghana.

Below are four set standards to acquire land in Ghana:

1.       Land Inspection: The investor must check the boundary corners of the land in question to verify the full extent of the land and be sure of the feasibility of the project to be used. This must be done by an expert and must be in the presence of the land owners as witnesses.

2.       Land Search: This is the most important stage. Here Surveyors   go onto the land to pick and demarcate the land parcel. The result is taken to the lands commission of Ghana to verify the true ownership of the. If the name that comes up is the same as your land owners, then you can carry on the process, if not quit or seek a legal advise.

3.       Land Documentation: The investor can proceed with the documentations, normally after a quarter or part payment has been done. The land owners then prepare the documents which must include a true and certified copy of Indenture and site plans.

4.       Land Title Certification: Actually this can be done simultaneously with the projects inception since the land title certification from the Land title registry of Ghana takes quite some time, about four mouths.

Hmmm... I didn't get a chance to check, but, if you look at the UN's functional operational currency charts for each country, you will find that 1.- 2008, Febuary, The USD was not calculated, Euro's were the base, even though the Euro was still used as a 1.XXX number. There are documents that are to be read with the operational currency charts that indicated the transition. 2- Whenever the UN stops "bothering" with any country's currency, look in the news about US assistance to that country. As soon as the US implements "their" way of banking, in ignorant yet well intended ways, eg., derrivative (SP?) banking that pushes the economy forward with debt as a currency as opposed to ownership, the UN is no longer able or willing to accept that countries currency because of volatility. You may want to check Ghana's?
