Outside CLRAs, a service was available for recording interests in customary land, but such interests would be given no statutory protection. 9. Transfers (to other customary groups), leases and mortgages entered into by incorporated land groups (ILGs) could also be registered, and in CLRAs the titles so gained would also be indefeasible. 10. Registered customary land would remain subject to custom, but a claim based on custom could not defeat a registered title in a CLRA. The East Sepik land legislation was an attempt to balance the economic need for greater certainty of interests in land with the desire, for social and cultural reasons, to retain customary tenures.

Upon incorporation, the assets and liabilities of a customary group are transferred to the ILG. Upon dissolution, the ILG’s customary land is vested back in its customary owners. Protection is given to outsiders dealing with an ILG. They are entitled to rely on its constitution, and if the ILG has entered into a dealing — other than a transaction disposing of its land27 — in accordance with the formal requirements set out in its constitution, that is generally conclusive as to its power to enter into the dealing.

Among the sources for his own paper, Lynch mentions publications by the New Guinea Research Unit of The Australian National University dealing with indigenous business enterprises (Lynch 1969: 4).
