(Ecofin Agency) - In Benin, the president of the national agency of estate and land (ANDF), Jules Victorien Kouglenou, announced last April 13 that land titles will now be issued within 120 days, under the requirements of the land and property code in force. This was during the kickoff session also attended by the president of the expert geometricians and the representative of notaries as well as the members of the agency’s board.

This new model of land certificate issued within 120 days, will help further secure land for economic growth. The project-modernity and land tenure in Benin-(modernité et sécurisation foncière au Bénin), initiated and implemented by the government is starting to yield encouraging results. The realization of the national land register is the icing on the cake awaited for the project whose achievement is a priority for the President,” indicated the ANDF in a statement.

 Subsequently to a modification made in May 2017, the land and property code in force since August 14, 2013, set land title as key proof for land ownership justification, instead of the land ownership certificate (introduced in 2013) which can be controversial 5 years after its issuance.
