Acquiring land and a valid land title is very easy when you follow the right procedure.

Visit the Site

The first step you need to take when purchasing land and acquiring land is a visit to the site and verify if the plot you are buying exists.

This visit also helps you appreciate the neighborhood, the geography, and other preferred features.

Use a professional surveyor

You have to verify the property size before executing the acquisition of the land title.

Get a professional registered surveyor to carry out a topographic survey of the land and confirm to you the size and shape as indicated on the title.

The surveyor will also identify the land boundaries and mark stones. And he will issue to you a survey report in that respect to avoid future conflicts with the neighbors.

Payment of land title

You must know if the payment rate for the title is a legitimate requirement and the seller should clear any pending debts on the property before completing the transaction.

The seller should present a clearance certificate for the land before it is transferred to the buyer, including the original land title, transfer documents if any, and consent to transfer. The seller organizes transfer documents to be executed by both parties.

These documents will only be accomplished following an issued consent to transfer by the commissioner of lands.

Requirements for transfer

When the registration course is done, the lawful possession of the land shall have legally changed hands there and then and have independent ownership.

For a legal transfer of ownership to take place, one needs:

The original title deed of the land.
Original stamp duty assessment forms, and receipt
Duly stamped transfer documents.
Clearance certificate.
Stamp duty valuation report.
Original land rates clearance certificate.
Consent to transfer plus application for registration.
