The Ministry is in the process of digitizing land records in 13 Land Registries to improve service delivery.

 This will be done over a period of two months commencing Monday, 25th July, 2016 to Monday, 26th September, 2016.This will result in disruption of services during the period.

 We understand that the following Land Registries will be affected: Mombasa, Kilifi, Kwale, Machakos, Kajiado, Central Registry at Ardhi House,Nairobi, Nakuru, Kisumu, Eldoret, Bungoma, Meru, Thika and Kiambu.

 We are informed that the following services will be available during the digitization process:

  •          Stamping
  •          Valuations
  •          Booking of documents for registration
  •          Online searches through the e-citizen portal
  •          Rent clearance certificates and consents

 Given that a number of Registrars will be involved with the digitization exercise, registration of documents and searches (both at the Inland Registry and Coast Registry) will be affected.
