    The field of cadastre holds an inherent complexity much based on its interdisciplinary characteristics and the national uniqueness of each cadastral system. In addition, some cadastral terminology is vague or ambiguous, which is why omission of the explicit sense and context of a particular term may bring obscurity to international comparisons and analyses. The concept legal coordinated cadastre (and kindred expressions), occasionally mentioned in connection with visions and plans of cadastral modernisation, is discussed here in order to clarify possible meanings and implications.

    December, 2010
    Singapore

    The Torrens system was designed to deal with problems of 19th century conveyancing practice and it is questionable whether it meets the needs of the 21st century. The doctrine of immediate indefeasibility of title exacerbates the growing problem of identity fraud and is capable of causing much injustice, which in itself leads to a high volume of litigation. This article considers the possibility of reform, in particular the introduction of a comprehensive insurance scheme and a move away from immediate indefeasibility.
