Effective October 1, 2021, Accra’s Lands Commission Department will halt the running of separate searches for reports from its divisions of Public and Vested Land Management Division, Land Registration Division, and Survey & Mapping Division.
In a statement to inform the public about measures taken to streamline their activities, the commission directed that all pending applications for searches be submitted online-- www.onlineservices.lc.gov.gh
"This is to ensure that a search report from the Commission on a parcel of land provides full information relating to that particular land in a single report, instead of three separate reports."
The Commission, however, said clients who visit the Clients Service Access Unit (CSAU) of the Lands Commission would be assisted to submit the application online.
The Lands Commission further advised "the general public to visit the Lands Commission’s website (https://www.lc.gov.gh/searches) from October 1,2021 for step-by-step guidelines on the submission and payment processes, how to track their applications online, how to access the search reports online and the fees payable for the consolidated search."
The Greater Accra Regional Lands Commission office has acknowledged the urgency of this change and stressed that "Records from these divisions will be consolidated into one Lands Commission search report."
