The CIIC Land/Legal Team is responsible for legal matters in relation to Crown land matters.

CIIC continues to resolve many intricate and long outstanding Crown land matters, predominately land rent reviews on Rarotonga and Aitutaki, as well as the Pa Enua.

A significant milestone for the CIIC Group occurred in the 2019 calendar year with its Group auditor, KPMG, removing the longstanding audit qualification (since 1998) for CIIC and Cook Islands Government Property Corporation (CIGPC) in relation to its Crown land lease obligations in its year-end financial statements audits. The auditors now have confidence that the records of the CIIC Group in relation to its various lands held by warrant or lease, are materially complete and accurate.
