Reason for Conversion of Land parcels
The Cabinet Secretary Ms. Faridah Karoney stated that land registration had become a complex process which had been prone to misuse and fraudulent activities due to different pieces of legislation.
The confusion that was brought about by different pieces of legislation had become a breeding ground for fraud. This accompanied by delays in service delivery, centralization of land services as well as threats to the right of property.
The ministry’s main motive of conducting this exercise is to bring all title deeds issued under multiple land regimes into a single land regime under this Land Registration Act of 2012.
The land owners will still retain the ownership, size and all other interests registered under their respective titles.
