A discussion is given of two land title systems, their strengths and weaknesses. It attempts to raise questions as to which system, the recording system or the registration system, will best meet the multifaceted needs of our increasingly complex society. It is an attempt to force a look at the benefits of reform before automation saturation and institutional inertia will make it increasingly more difficult for future reform. The recording system needs reform. Automation is a means toward more efficient collection and use of existing records. Registration requires deep institutional change, but it could provide surety and efficiencies which recording cannot. Implementation of either reform will be expensive.
