Legal Alert | Kenya | New Guidelines on Extension and Renewal of Leases

 

In December 2016, a landmark ruling stated that all documents of title, including leases processed by the Ministry of Lands without the advice or input from the National Land Commission (the NLC) are unconstitutional and void. The court however directed that the Ministry had twelve months within which to engage with the NLC and seek the latter’s advice. Failing this, all the regulations and registration forms promulgated in the absence of the NLC’s advice and in the absence of Parliament’s approval shall stand null and void.
