Based on the survey data of 25 provinces in China, this paper explores the mechanism of property security and property rights cognition on the inconsistent of land transfer intention and behavior by using Probit model and Tobit model. The empirical results show that there are conditions for the transformation of land transfer intention to behavior. When the stability of land rights is high, the farmers' land transfer intention can be transformed into behavior easily, otherwise it can't. Farmland right confirmation makes the land property rights of farmers more clear, and then by reducing transaction costs and increasing land rent, it can ultimately promote the transformation between farmers' intention and behavior to transfer in and hinder the transformation between farmers' intention and behavior to transfer out. At the same time, the village control also has the same effect as farmland right confirmation. Therefore, on the basis of maintaining the stability of land property rights, the market of land management rights should be standardized. Beyond that in order to create favorable conditions for farmers to participate in the land transfer market, the advantages of village committee in organizing land transfer should be brought into play.
