A few weeks ago, we sent an alert informing you of a High Court order which permitted the use of the current conveyancing forms until 31 January 2018 to allow the Cabinet Secretary of the Ministry of Lands and Physical Planning to obtain the requisite parliamentary approval of the Land Registration (General) Regulations 2017. The Regulations set out the forms of title and a wide range of prescribed conveyancing forms, including forms of transfers, leases, charges, easements, cautions, and powers of attorney intended to be adopted in all conveyancing transactions in Kenya.
As the Regulations did not receive the requisite Parliamentary approval by 31 January 2018, the Cabinet Secretary has obtained an order from the High Court allowing the use of the current conveyancing forms until 31 July 2018.
It is expected that before 31 July 2018 Parliamentary approval will be granted in respect of the Regulations.
We will continue to update you on further developments.
