In the title registration system the certificate itself is the proof of ownership. This system was developed in the United Kingdom and exists in countries which had been under British influence. In some countries this system has led to an incomplete land registration system either because it is not compulsory to register transfers or because it is only necessary to register when land is sold or subject to long lease[1]. The Torrens system is a variant of this system.
