Protect your land against Encroachment. (don’t lose your land)
Land is a very profitable investment, at least every realtor knows that. In Ghana land does not depreciate, it appreciates every single day. People who understand this want to go into real estate and own a plot of land or more. What most people don’t know is how to protect their land from encroachers.
It is important to buy from genuine estate companies or individuals but that is not enough. The other issue next to land litigation and land fraud is land encroachment.
Land encroachment happens when people intrude on your land for various purposes. Of course, that property is yours, you bought it, have the documents including title but you leave it for some weeks, months years and before u come back to it someone has their sand on it or they are putting up a temporal structure on it.
sometimes these encroachers are so stubborn to the extent that you need court actions to get them off your legit property.
As we all know in Ghana, court actions take some time and money. The money you would spend in court sometimes can even buy you a new plot of land so why take the risk and allow encroaches on your land before you take any action.
How do you then protect your land from encroachers?

- Have corner pillars
- Build corner blocks
