BANDAR SERI BEGAWAN
ADVOCATE services or third parties who intend to apply for land applications must now submit them online, the Ministry of Development said yesterday.
In a statement, the ministry said as of April 2, it is mandatory for advocate services to submit their land applications online.
The Land Application Registration Information System, or LARIS, enables land owners or advocates to submit land applications to the Land Department at the Ministry of Development through an online process.
The types of land applications made online are land ownership transfer; change of land title special condition; land changed to financial institutions; lease of private land and lease renewal for private land.
To begin the application procedure, advocate services or land owners need to log onto www.laris.gov.bn or www.land.gov.bn.
The ministry reminded land owners or lawyers that registration should first be done at e-Darussalam portal before anything else.
More information can be found on the websites.
The ministry is also reminding applicants that if the application is found to have been falsified, it will not be accepted or processed.
The applicant will be notified of its approval or rejection through the e-Darussalam Portal’s email.
If the application is approved, all original documents and the original land title(s) should be submitted to the Land Registration Section in the respective district of the Land Department, the ministry added.
There are currently kiosks for public use.
A kiosk containing a PC and scanner is located at the Design and Technology Building in Anggerek Desa.
Another two kiosks are available at the Land Department’s headquarters, and four kiosks are available in each of the Land Office districts across Brunei.
