    A Cadastre, in the sense to be used in this paper, is a methodically established record of immovable. (Land, buildings, rights that are put on a par with landed property) based on the survey of a complete district. The official record of a cadastral survey generally consists of a drawing or map and a written description of the field work. Cadastres as a rule consist of a map of the survey, a register arranged according to parcels, a register arranged according to proprietors and some auxiliary registers for easier handling. The single parcels are systematically numbered, on the map.

    Mailo tenure is the most legislated form of tenure in Uganda, having its origins in the 1900 Buganda Agreement. Reforms over the years have seen the evolution of this tenure that is essentially freehold in nature, albeit with its local characteristics arising out of an unresolved tenant question. This status quo was reinstated in the 1995 Constitution, the Land Act and its subsequent amendments. Whereas it is expected that reforms introduced by the Constitution and Land Act would suffice in stabilizing Mailo tenure, this has not happened in practice.
