Lands Department eyes new legislation

Strata title allows individual ownership of part of a property, whilst sharing ownership in common property like driveways or gardens.

In a press briefing yesterday afternoon, Lands Minister Justin Tkatchenko said strata titles provide a further option for home and property ownership to our people.

“Most countries now allow you to have a strata title, which means that you have a title for the apartment or the actual flat or unit that you are buying,” he explained.

Tolopa is acting lands secretary

Lands Minister Justin Tkatchenko revealed this yesterday, stating that Tolopa was appointed last week.

Tkatchenko said the appointment is in line with his focus to implement significant changes within the Department.

“Mr Tolopa has taken the reins already, he’s been gazetted and I look forward to working with him for the benefit of reform and change in the Lands Department,” said Tkatchenko.
