Residents of Kandal get over 1,000 ‘hard titles’

The Kandal Provincial Administration on April 18 presented over 1,000 “hard titles” – the strongest form of property ownership certificate in the Kingdom – to more than 500 households in Anlong Ta Sek Leu village in Sa’ang district’s Prek Ambel commune.

The distribution was overseen by provincial governor Kong Sophorn.

“The 1,030 hard titles handed out to the 513 households today … aim to prevent land disputes and improve their livelihoods,” he said.

Sophorn urged the provincial Department of Land Management, Urban Planning, Construction and Cadastral Affairs to continue to register land and issue titles as efficiently as possible, warning that officials cannot accept payment for these services.

According to the provincial administration, it has provided a total of 270,926 titles to residents. This year, it plans to register a further 160,000 plots of land.

In December last year, Prime Minister Hun Sen instructed the Ministry of Land Management, Urban Planning and Construction to complete nationwide land registration by the end of 2023, while noting that most estimates indicated that more than 96 per cent of titles had been issued.
