The Management of Lands Commission has issued a disclaimer on what it describes as syndicates at the Lands Commission that conducts what is termed as “Shadow Search” which they believe is fraudulent and means to dupe innocent Ghanaians seeking to conduct official searches on their land transactions.
In a statement signed by the management of the Lands Commission and sighted by Oman news, the Commission has urged clients to channel their requests through official means to avoid being scammed.
Read statement below…..
The attention of the Lands Commission has been drawn to a social media circulation about the existence of a syndicate at the Lands Commission that conducts what is termed as “Shadow Search”.
The Lands Commission wishes to state emphatically that, there is nothing known as “Shadow Search” within the Commission.
The Lands Commission as a state mandated body in the management of Government Lands, conducts official searches for applicants to facilitate their land transactions.
These searches and other services provided by the Commission can be accessed by the general public through the Client Service Access Unit (CSAU) of the Lands Commission or through our online portal www.onlineservices.lc.gov.gh.
We therefore admonish the general public to interact with the Lands Commission exclusively through the CSAU or our Online Portal.
The CSAU and the online portal are the only channels through which all transactions at the Lands Commission are submitted and received.
Clients or applicants who fail to transact business with the Lands Commission through the prescribed channels do so at their own risk.
