    Hi Am Benjamin Kalema. I want advise and assistance if any one can render it to me. I bought a plot of land in Lugaza in January 2016. I was just in Uganda for a short while then i left in February 2016. The plot was measuring 95*55ft, after the purchase of the plot, the seller made me an agreement infront of the chairman bt didnt hand over to me the original agreement he used to purchase the plot at first, i only took the agreement we only made with the chairman. after a while during my absence, the seller again sold it to another person and till date i have never recovered my plot nor gained my money back since am out of the country.

    I just bought a piece of land in wakiso district and on the tittle, the district which appears there is mengo and it’s written mailo tenure.
    Does this mean the land belongs to kabaka?

  8. Oloya Julius says:

    I bought a plot together with the 54 x 38 feet, the seller introduced me the land owner who has the title, the land owner welcomed me on his land, and told me to arrange and buy off my self from land, that bring a surveyor , we survey and make a print from where he will tell me the price to pay , then he make a transfer of that particular area in my names.

    Inquiries , is it possible, people say you can’t get any tittle unless you buy 16 decimals .

    Kindly advice please.

    Thanks for the information.
    Just asking can I get a land tittle for this size of land
    49Ft X 75Ft X 64 Ft X 91Ft.

    Also I bought this land from the father who sold it on behalf of his son but did not give me the agreement on which he had given the land to the son. I feel a bit insecure that this son may in future claim this land using the agreement on which the father gave him this land.
    pliz advise me

    • Namisango Prossy says:

      Hi Betty, you are in trouble if both the father and the son do exist, bring your sell agreement and we help you. look for an ngo called African Fraternity for Justice peace and devt. you will be assisted at a minimal pay. or contact that lawyer called Kawuki – 0772558879 he saved my family.

    • pius says:

      Betty if the land is for the son, then the sales agreement should bear the sons name(the land owner) otherwise your sales agreement can easily be disputed
      Its best you get the sales agreement in the land owners name
