LANDOWNERs have been advised to refrain from relying on oral agreements when dealing with the use of their land.
iTaukei Land Trust Board (TLTB) regional manager northern Josaia Waqairatu said landowners needed to formalise leases to protect their interests.
Mr Waqairatu said conflicts on land agreements not formalised by TLTB would only be resolved in a court of law.
“But with those leases formalised under TLTB, we can represent the interests of the landowners in cases of conflicts or other complications,” he said.
