The National Land Code 1965 is the highest law in Peninsular Malaysia in respect to land administration. It is a codification of laws covering various important aspects of rights and powers over land. This paper will discuss the issue of squatters, temporary occupation of lands and corruption in land administration with respect to the rights of stakeholders. The research methodology involves case analysis to analyse the duly decided and reported cases which had led to amendments in the National Land Code 1965. The study reveals that there are evident flaws in the administration of land in the arising legal issues highlighted. This study will also highlight some of the proposed improvements to improve both land administration and land law to protect the rights of parties who have interests on lands.
