Land Management Rights on State Land by Local Governments

Erikson Sihotang


Land is an essential part of human life. On the land there are various rights that arise, including ownership rights, building use rights, cultivation rights and usage rights. Besides land that already has land rights on it, there is also land without rights on it which is called State land. This paper will examine the legal problems that arise over State land which is claimed by regional governments as regional assets. The method used in this writing is through a doctrinal / law approach where the law is conceptualized as statutory regulations. The results of the analysis show that the regional government cannot automatically say that State land is land controlled by the regional government through management rights, but the regional government must apply to the national land agency to have rights over State land.
