THE existing Land Registration Ordinance has been in existence since 1844. It has operated without any problems and without generating any complaints.
Even if there were problems, it seems that they were all ironed out or resolved by amendments of the ordinance. In other words, the existing system operates efficiently.
However, now the Government proposes to replace it with the complicated Land Titles Bill which has not been tested or refined, in practice.
This is an illogical decision as nobody can point to any major insurmountable problem in the existing system that can justify such a drastic change.
