Understanding the Land subdivision Process

A Step by step guide


1⃣ Do a title deed search.
Search the land on Ardhisasa platform which will tell you it the land has any restrictions that prevent you from subdividing it. Restrictions may include the land being used as a collateral for a loan, etc.

2⃣ Look for R.I.M
Get a surveyor to help you get a Registry Index Map which shows the map of the land to subdivide. The cost of this will depend on the size of the land

3⃣ Confirm measurements.
Your surveyor then takes measurements and sets the boundary marks

The Blueprints are then taken to the County lands office which will approve and issue the PPA2.

7⃣ Set the boundary marks
After getting consent from the land control, the surveyor will then set the boundary marks.
