Sub-division of Lands (Pecah Sempadan Tanah) and Partition of Lands (Pecah Bahagian Tanah)

This was the question posted to me on last week by Tan and Ong. What is the difference between Sub-division of Lands (Pecah Sempadan Tanah) & Partition of Lands (Pecah Bahagian Tanah).

1) Section in National Land Code
a. Sub-division of Lands is in section 135-139 National Land Code 1965.
b. Partition of Land is in section 140-145 National Land Code 1965.

2) Defination in English & Bahasa
a. Sub-division of land – “The proprietor of any alienated land held under Register or Land Office title or qualified title in continuation of final title may, with the approval under this chapter of the State Director of Land Administrator, as provided by sub-section (2), sub-divide the land into two or more portions to be held by him under separate titles.” Further explaination please refer to section 135 National Land Code.

i. Pecah sempadan tanah adalah bermaksud bahawa tanah yang dipegang di bawah hakmilik tetap, sama ada hakmilik Pejabat Pendaftar atau hakmilik Pejabata Tanah, dipecah sempadan kepada 2 bahagian atau lebih, tiap-tiap satunya untuk dipegang oleh tuanpunya yang sama atau oleh tuan punya tuan punya bersama yang sama di bawah hakmilik yang berasingan.

b. Partition of Land- “ Any alienated land which is held under Registry or Land Office title or qualified title in continuation of final title by two or more persons as co-proprientors may, by agreement between those persons and with the approval under this chapter of the State Director or Land Administrator, as provided by subsection (2), be partitioned”, Please kindly refer further explanation in section 140 National Land Code 1965.

i. Pecah bahagian Tanah bermaksud bahawa tanah yang dipegang di bawah hak milik Pejabat Pendaftar atau hakmilik Pejabat Tanah, oleh dua orang atau lebih sebagai tuanpunya bersama adalah dipecahkan supaya (syer) meletak hak pada tiap-tiap orang seorang dari mereka itu di bawah satu hakmilik berasingan.
ii. Apabila didaftarkan hakmilik sementara bagi tiap-tiap bahagian atau apabila didaftarkan hakmilik-hakmilik tetap bagi bahagian tanah itu (jika hakmilik sementara tidak dipohon), hakmilik yang sedia ada adalah terhenti dari berkuatkuasa.

3) Form to be used
a. Sub-division of Lands is using Form 9A
b. Partition of Land is using Form 9B.

I think most of the students still can not understand the meaning of Sub-division of Lands (Pecah Sempadan Tanah) & Partition of Lands (Pecah Bahagian Tanah), including me when I was a student.

Let me tell you all how to differential these two surveys.

Partition of land

One divorce couple come to you and wants to split their land into 2. Then you should use partition of land for this case. Please do not wrongly use form 9A then you will be in trouble because this divorce couple name will share same title even split into 2.

Sub-division of land

This survey normally applies if you have huge acreages of land want to sell in small pieces such as 1 acre. You can easily sell the land and the price also will be in high margin compare with big acreages. You need to do is just transfer the title name to the buyer name without much trouble. It is straight forward trading.

From the past experience, I can see that those days’ people like to share to buy a piece of land and subsequently they will end out with difficulty to get their own title. They want to sell also difficult and normally the price also discounted.
