Kampala, (UG): The Buganda Land Board (BLB) is once again buzzing with their upcoming Client Interface Month happening from this Sunday, October 1st, 2023 until 31st October 2023.
The Futuristic Interface Month presents an opportunity for people living in Buganda Kingdom to engage with BLB and get all their land-related issues sorted; we hope once and for all!
So what exactly can you do during this Client Interface Month, you ask? Well, let us tell you the endless possibilities. Feel free to let us know when to stop. Here we go: Know the status of your kibanja: You can stroll into their offices and get to know the status of your kibanja. For those not in the know, a kibanja is like your own little slice of paradise on Kabaka’s land. It’s that plot of land, usually on a bigger chunk, which is owned by another person, known as the title holder (in this case, the Kabaka).
Basically, a kibanja is your ticket to being a landowner in the Buganda Kingdom. And oh, do we value the status symbol! This brings us to the next agenda on BLB’s Client Interface Month.
Inquire about getting a land title: If you’re wondering how to get that coveted land title on Kabaka’s land, the BLB has you covered. They will diligently guide you through the maze of paperwork and legal mumbo jumbo, ensuring that you become a bonafide landowner in no time. You do want those bragging rights that come with owning land on Kabaka’s turf, don’t you? Your friends will be green with envy – and not just because of the lush greenery! But that’s not all, folks.
Busuulu and ground rent: Now, we know what you’re thinking money talk, right? Fear not! BLB understands that even the most majestic lands require a little financial TLC. That’s why they’re offering you the opportunity to pay your Busuulu and ground rent dues right there at their offices.
We’ve heard many disturbing issues where landowners have been fleeced out of their hard-earned money by scammers purporting to be acting on Kabaka’s behalf. This Client Interface Month, BLB is putting all their nonsense to a stop! So grab your chequebook and head on down to their offices. No fuss, no hassle, just a quick and free transaction away from your peace of mind.
Free legal aid: Have we mentioned that you can get free legal aid during Client Interface Month? As we said, feel free to tell us when to stop with the endless opportunities available this entire month. So yes, you read us correctly – free legal aid. BLB knows that navigating the sometimes treacherous waters of land ownership can be daunting, so they’re here to lend a helping hand.
Whether it’s understanding your rights, resolving disputes, or anything else related to land, their eagle-eyed legal experts will be hovering around their offices to see anyone with anything and everything Lawly. And did we mention it’s free? Our bad! But there’s more.
Learn about succession issues: Situated in various branches around you, the BLB Client Interface Month is your gateway to uncovering the intricacies of transferring land ownership to your heirs or successors. Leave outdated estate plans behind and learn about the updated legal and cultural procedures that will set you and your lineage up for a successful legacy.
Learn to utilize land productively: Last but not least, the BLB Client Interface Month is not just about Bibanja and paperwork. They also want you to learn how to utilize your land productively. We hear that during this whole month, BLB will offer workshops and training sessions on various land-based activities such as agriculture, real estate, and tourism. You do want to turn that plot of land into a gold mine, right?
The BLB Client Interface Month will take place at the Buganda Land Board branches in Kampala, Nansana-Nakkule, Kakiri-Ggombolola, Ndejje-Lufuka, Kasangati-Ssaza (Near Kasangati Service Center), & Massulita-Ggombolola.
