Need for the Document
A Land Rent Clearance Certificate applies specifically to areas where the land is leasehold. Under the repealed land laws, land rent could not be levied for property under the ambit of the Government Lands Act. Currently, section 39(1) of the Land Registration Act provides that the registrar shall not register any instrument that seeks to create any interest in land if land rents for that particular property have not been paid.

A Land Rent Clearance Certificate is the evidence of payment of such rents and it is issued by the Registrar.

In Kenya, every transaction involving the transfer of interests in land must have a consent or certificate as prescribed by the laws of Kenya.

The Land Rent Clearance Certificate is issued by the Commissioner of Lands and has the same purpose as the Rates Clearance Certificate with respect to property taxes to be paid to the State.

Information which might help
The Departments of Lands (Land Rent Section) - This section is the custodian of all government leasehold and land rent records. Rent assessment is done by the office and payment made to the Commissioner of Domestic taxes through intermediaries (Kenya Commercial Bank, National Bank and Cooperative Bank) on prescribed forms which show details such as parcel number, owners name, address, personal identification number and the amount of rent payable per annum.

Other uses of the Document/Certificate
Purpose: Determination of property tax payer

Rents are levied only on leasehold parcels where the annual rent has been reserved at the time of the Grant being issued.

It is always the duty of the registered proprietor to pay and obtain the Rates and Rent Clearance Certificates- S21 Rating Act
