There has been an important update regarding Land Transactions. The Ministry of Lands and Physical Planning has upgraded the Electronic Transaction Management System to ease the processing of transactions at the Ministry.
According to a Public Notice issued on Monday, 4th December 2017, all Fees and Duties are required to be paid online through the www.ecitizen.go.ke portal, effective the same date.
Among the Services to be offered through the portal are Transfer of Ownership, Payment of Land Rent, Payment of Land Rates, Payment of Consent Fees, Payment of Registration Fees, Payment of Stamp Duty, Application for Caution/Caveat and Official Land Searches.
We are aware that this update has not taken into account stakeholders input and raises the question of lawyers transacting on behalf of clients. D&I is looking into coming up with a workable solution to ensure that our services to our clients remain undisrupted, however, in the meantime please click here to view the full Public Notice as issued by the Ministry.
