Étude de l'impact de la départementalisation de Mayotte sur son système foncier

Abstract : Since March 31, 2011, Mayotte island (Mozambique channel, NW of Madagascar) is a French area. Her history, affected by the colonial era, knew from 1911 to 2008 a very typical land tenure system, close to the Madagascar one's. This system came from the Torrens act system, which is based on registration, a quite long and cumbersome process that issue a property act to the newcomer or farmer. This title was everlasting and unassailable, but it was also optional. The partial titling, coupled to the plurality of rules based on customary and Islamic laws, has made difficult the convergence to the French civil law. From the cadastre establishment in 1993 to the land taxation in 2014, the alignment with French law is already in a good way but some problems occurs like an inertia which is braking proceedings as well as by the fact that a significant portion of Mayotte's people is simply land occupant and not owner. Metropolitan system imposition made the required boundary marking and his publication disappear, which is certainly not a way to maintain legal security, in front of a huge population growth. The arrivals of the common taxation system as well as the shoreline management are remaining outstanding issues.
