A critical stage during land documentation is the application for the Governor’s Consent at the Land Bureau. This is done to confirm the transfer of ownership of the land. After the Governor’s consent has been obtained, the applicant can pick up the document with proper registration details at the Land Bureau and complete the land registration process with an exchange of contract.
