Property Law

Cambodia enacted its current land law in 2001, establishing a national immovable property registration system. Under this system, registration of title on the national register is conclusive evidence of ownership, and all transfers of land must be registered in order for ownership to pass. The system is similar to the Torrens titling system used in Australia, being a title by registration system rather than a re-connection system, such as is used in the United States and in Japan. There is no need to trace the title history in order to prove valid ownership.
