The statutory process relative to Koehoto land recording has been progressing rather smoothly without any difficulties and or impediments.
The process has reached the Notice of completion stage whereby a Notice (Form 5) have been posted at certain locations to signify the progress and milestone achieved to date.
On the 9th day of June 2022, the appointed Land Recorder proceeded and made public Form 5 by posting at Obo Village, Purakachele Village and GP PHQ office, Honiara.
Accordingly, the map of the customary land is now available at the Land Records office for inspection.
In essence, Form 5 basically entails that “any land holding group or person upon discovery of an error
or omission may make representation to the recording officer within 30 days from the date the notice
The Notice further calls that “any landholding group or person who believes their claims or interest
have not been adequately considered by the recording may make written representation to the
National Recorder to have their claims reconsidered”. Again, such representation if any must be in a
written form and within 30 days from the date of the Notice.
At the lapse of the 30 days’ notice, the Koehoto land Recording process will enter into the residual
formalities and then practical completion will ensue.
