The Singapore Land Authority (SLA) is a statutory board under the Ministry of Law. Formed on 1 June 2001, its mission is to ensure effective use of land resources and data for the economic and social development of Singapore.

SLA manages about 11,000 hectares of State land and about 5,000 State properties, which are used for residential, commercial, social and community purposes. Through the planning and execution of interim uses for State properties under our management, SLA is able to maximise the use of vacant State land and properties in creative and innovative ways to support our nation’s economic and social needs.

As the national registration authority, SLA provides the framework for the implementation of the Government’s land policies and puts in place the legal infrastructure that facilitates effective property transactions for businesses and the public. SLA issues and guarantees land titles in Singapore. SLA is also responsible for the creation and maintenance of the national land survey system, where boundaries or legal limits of properties are defined, based on a coordinated cadastre survey system.

SLA drives the use and development of geospatial information science and technology by fostering a national collaborative environment that encourages innovation, knowledge sharing and value creation among public agencies, private enterprises and the community.
