Event: Transfer of Land Amendment Ordinance No. 2

User login

Faced with widespread discontent from both Arab and Zionist organizations on the 1920 Land Transfer Ordinance, the British decide to remove all restrictions on the disposition of land, except for the provision meant to ensure that the “tenant in occupation” retains enough land for himself and his family. However, in the near decade that follows illegal methods are systematically and successfully implemented by both sellers and buyers to circumvent the tenant’s protection.
