Gazette of the Republic of Indonesia Number 2043), known as the Basic Agrarian Law, abbreviated as UUPA. Article 19, paragraph (1) UUPA, contains an order to carry out land registration to protect and guarantee legal certainty for registered land parcels. However, technical regulations are needed that specifically regulate the implementation of land registration, as stipulated in Government Regulation (PP) No. 24 of 1997 concerning Land Registration, further elaborated through the Regulation of the Minister of Agrarian Affairs/Head of BPN No. 3 of 1997. Theoretically, determining and selecting programs are not always in line with the results or facts of achievement, and it is not as easy as turning the palms of one's hands. The State or Government through the Ministry of Agrarian Affairs and Spatial Planning/Head of the National Land Agency (Ministry of ATR/BPN), has announced that around 126 million plots of land have been registered and certified by the end of 2025. Nevertheless, the facts are not as easy as imagined. The reason is that the journey to reach the agreed figures will be confronted with various supporting and hindering phenomena. One of the inhibiting factors was not achieving the previously agreed figures due to the Coronavirus Disease 2019 (Covid-19 Pandemic) [1], which spread to all corners of the country, causing land registration activities to be disrupted so that the frequency of implementation was limited.
