The National Land Code governs the property dealings in Peninsular Malaysia while East Malaysia are covered by Sarawak Land Code and Sabah Land Ordinance. Land matters fall under the governance and jurisdiction of the State in which the land is located. The purpose of the National Land Code is to ensure the uniformity of land law and land policy that encompasses land tenure, registration, transfers, charges, leases, easements and other interests and rights to land.
