Guide to the procedure for amalgamation of plots in Kenya

Amalgamation involves the combination of two or more pieces of land that are under separate titles into one piece of land with only one title. Amalgamation renders the title deeds for the various sub-units null and void by merging them into one new title deed.

Amalgamation is the opposite of subdivision which is the process of dividing one piece of land to several plots. In case you missed it, you can read more about the process of subdividing land to numerous plots.

The process of amalgamation of land involves the drafting of an amalgamation/subdivision plan/scheme showing the plots to be combined. The investor, through a registered physical planner makes an application to the County Government through filling in PPA 1 form attaching the plan/scheme and a planning brief explaining why the amalgamation or subdivision is in line with the policy. The requisite fee will be paid to the County government and the receipt annexed to the planning Brief presented to the County Government.


For amalgamations, you need to include:

Dully filled P.P.A 1 forms in triplicate submitted and signed by a Registered Physical Planner

Amalgamation/Subdivision Scheme (5 Blue prints and 1 Linen print)

Planning Brief by a Registered Physical Planner (signed accordingly)

Ownership documents (Title Deed)
