About this publication

Land Title in South Africa is concerned with the land reform programme which is a central aspect of the political and social reform agenda of democratic South Africa. After a concise general survey of the history of discriminatory landholding, comprehensive chapters on registration, prescription and alternative forms of title establish the relevant property law context. Chapters giving details of the precursor 1991 reforms and, most importantly, explaining the controlling constitutional provisions, set the scene of the reform developments.

The ANC Government’s principal land reform laws of the first democratic parliament (1994 – 1999) are dealt with in chapters on restitution, redistribution and tenure reform – a breakdown reflecting the conceptual basis of the reform programme. The book ends with a general chapter identifying the overall impact of the reforms in the existing property context.
