Togo to reinforce regulations for land transfer from citizens to foreigners  

(Togo First) - Togo wants to reinforce regulations relating to land transfers from citizens to foreigners. Related leases will be extended for a period of more than nine years.

These decisions are found in the second decree assessed during the recent council of ministers held last Wednesday.

In effect, “transfers of property and constitution of property rights regarding a building located in the country, involving a Togolese citizen and a foreigner”, are subject to prior approval by relevant authorities.  

The recent measures aligns with many others implemented by the government in the recent years to improve its land environment. These measures actually helped the country slightly reduce “time needed to transfer a property”, according to the 2019 Doing Business. They also helped boost “transparency by making data related to cadastral plans and land property free of access.”  

Since the beginning of 2019, other reforms initiated include setting a tariff of CFA35,000 for property transfer operations ; combining inherent procedures to shorten delays ; putting in place a platform for submission of complaints, etc.
