The major cause of failure in land administration systems in many countries is poor management and lack of good governance. Hence, the paper examines previous literature on the impact of property right on low cost housing. The study is conducted with reference to existing theoretical literature review, published and unpublished research by other researchers. One of the primary findings emanating from the study reveals that enhanced political voice and political accountability has an impact on improving the prospects for secure property rights. Furthermore if the governments of developing countries provide real property ownership with clear titles and rights enforceable by law, then poor people will be able to use their assets to obtain credit which can be employed in productive activities, and countries could lever themselves and their poor inhabitants out of poverty. The research will make contribution to type of land reform which lead to sustainable development through land titling, a reduction in the probability of being evicted, or otherwise losing land rights and provide land users with greater assurance that they will enjoy the fruits of their labour and investment, thereby encouraging them to make long-term investments for sustainable use of their properties.
