How does Ardhisasa work?

Ardhisasa is an online platform that allows citizens, other stakeholders and interested parties to interact with land information and processes. It seeks to resolve the historical problems experienced by landowners and investors when undertaking paper transactions.

  • Land valuation – asset valuation, government leasing, government purchase, estate administration, arbitration;
  • Land adjudication and settlement – adjudication, settlement; and
  • National land commission transactions – land allocation

Note: You need to be careful to input the exact transaction you wish to register so as not to transact mistakenly.

For any transaction to take place, the landowner must upload a copy of the original title to the platform, in the backend the Ministry will validate the application and the landowner can proceed to undertake the transaction.

Currently, all transactions relating to properties in the Nairobi Registry are being processed through Ardhisasa. All other services/transactions are being offered manually.
