oa De Rebus - The restitution of land rights act and the land claims court

The Restitution of Land Rights Act 22 of 1994 (the Act) created the Land Claims Court (LCC). In this article I endeavour to point only to the salient features pertaining to the LCC. Although in terms of s 2 of the Act all claims for restitution of a right in land had to be lodged by no later than 31 December 1998, it does not for one moment mean the end of the LCC. Some 54 000 claims have been lodged not only in terms of the Act, but also in terms of other statutes, such as the Land Reform (Labour Tenants) Act 3 of 1996.* Legal practitioners can rest assured that the LCC is here to stay for a long time.
