Modernisation of land administration services in Uganda

The Land Information System will replace the current manual system of land allocation, deed plan preparation and land registration. The LIS will:

  • Provide a set of technical processes and procedures for the registration of rights and interests in real estate units in Uganda by supporting the MLHUD business workflows in its main fields of intervention (First Registration – Freehold/Leasehold, survey preparation, leasehold to Freehold Conversion, extension of Lease/Sublease, subsequent registration, request for copy of Deed Plan, certificate of customary ownership or certificate of occupancy…)
  • Simplify and automate the procedures for land and real estate transactions
  • Be the sole electronic source of land and real estate for mailo, freehold, leasehold and customary rights and interests held under a unified registry for the 6 pilot districts until early 2013 and thereafter for the whole country
  • Provide specific system administration tools to manage users, perform workflow management, security audits, system configuration and the configuration of charts of accounts and fee schedules
  • Support the generation of ground rent demands;
  • Support parcel creation from JRJs using standard cadastral editing tools and the ability to generate deed plans according to predefined template
  • Generate reports on staff productivity, registry content, and financial information on revenue for services provided by the DLOs
  • Generate standardized query and notification letters as well as other reports
  • Provide a public access module that allows general enquiries by the public within the DLO customer service areas
  • Support decentralized business workflows in the 6 pilot DLOs
  • Support the functions of a national land administration body called the National Land Information Centre.
