Systematic Land Titling Updates

Systematic Land Titling Progress in Zambia
April 2022

The Systematic Land Titling program has issued over 39,000 Certificates of Title to landowners in Lusaka whose properties have been successfully captured and verified as of April 2022, this year.

Medici Land Governance working together with the Ministry of Lands and Natural Resources has currently enumerated a total of 201,636 parcels, and 101,301 offer letters have been distributed to respective property owners, which will lead to the issuance of certificates of title once the landowners pay the minimum fee.

Meanwhile, out of the 80,000 offer letters, 6,791 were distributed to property owners from three areas (Ipusukilo, Bulangililo, and Garneton) in the Copperbelt province. This marked the first-ever issuance of offer letters on the Copperbelt since the roll-out of the SLT program in the Copperbelt province.

The Systematic Land Titling program aims to issue 4 million certificates of title under the National Land Titling program which is being implemented by the Ministry of Lands and Natural Resources.

Steps Of The Data Collection Process

Data collection is the first step for a landowner in the process of acquiring a Certificate of Title under the National Land Titling Programme.

Enumerators wearing green T-shirts, carrying a work ID and an introduction letter from the Ministry of Lands and Natural Resources go door to door to capture landowners property documents and verify boundaries. The data capturing process takes less than 3 minutes to complete. 

The following are the steps taken:

  1. Enumerator checks if landowner has the correct documentation which is their National Registration Card (NRC) and any of the following documents as proof of ownership:
    • Invitation to Treat
    • Offer Letter
    • Land record card
    • Occupancy Licence
    • Utility Bill (electricity, water)
    • Council Rate Bill
    • Letter of Sale
    • Deed of Gift
  2. Enumerator checks property boundaries
  3. Landowners details and documents are captured
  4. Other beneficiaries are included and captured, these could be spouses, children over the age of 21 or any other beneficiaries to the property
  5. Images of the property are taken
  6. Landowners append their signatures

Medici Land Governance urges all Landowners to adhere to Covid-19 guidelines during this process.
