The CEO of NAMAL Real Estate, Alhaji Kamal, has advised prospective land buyers to exercise caution when purchasing land.
He stated that there are people who pose as land dealers but lack the necessary qualifications.
The astute land and estate developer contended that people who deal in land sales must have the legal capacity to do so.
In an interview with Rainbow Radio 87.5Fm, he explained that land issues can be frustrating when purchasing from questionable individuals because they may be the subject of litigation.
As a result, prospective land buyers must exercise caution before purchasing land.
You have a responsibility as a land buyer to deal with the legal owner of the land. You should also check with the land commission to see if the person who sold you the land is the legal owner.
Ghanaian law requires that anyone who deals in the sale of land be capable. If you buy land and verify it with the land commission and the person does not have any legal documentation to prove that they can sell it, run for your life.
Another thing to keep in mind is that when you buy land, you must process it within a certain time frame. When you buy land, you should not put off processing it. Some people put off purchasing land for more than a decade. That is not acceptable. There are laws governing land issues, but many people are unaware of them.
