Land Ownership 0% open

Malaysia

What data is expected?

Data should include maps of lands with parcel layer that displays boundaries in addition to a land registry with information on registered parcels of land. The Index focuses on assessing open land tenure data (describing the rules and processes of land property). Responsible use may enable tenure security and increase the transparency of land transactions. The assessment criteria were developed in collaboration with Cadasta Foundation. For more information on land ownership datasets and where they're located, check out Cadasta Foundation's Data Overview.

  • Parcel boundaries (inc. latitude and longitude)
  • Parcel ID
  • Property value (i.e. Price Paid, Property Tax Value)
  • Tenure Type (ie. leasehold, freehold, protected lands, public lands, customary lands)

Details

In Malaysia, land ownership at national level is managed by 2 agencies; Department of Lands and Mines (JKPTG) & The Department of Survey and Mapping Malaysia (JUPEM). Link: http://www.nre.gov.my/ms-my/Tanah/Pages/default.aspx. Since, JKPTG and JUPEM are under the federal territory, the data available are not open to the public and entrance fees are required to request the data. However, there are several cases whereby Malay reserve land owner able to request the data at their respective state from the Land Department Office, which for Selangor and Penang case, the FOI act is available. Thus, the owners have their right to request access of the data.
