The Institution of Surveyors of Kenya has raised concerns Over Proliferation of questionable Real Estate Stakeholders Associations.
In a press briefing, the Surveyors noted:
“Evidently, the very entities that have fleeced Kenyans in the past have or will, most likely join these mushrooming associations. The attempt by the said entities at hoodwinking Kenyans that they can tackle fraud in the land Sector is misleading and an attempt at sanitising their past activities.”
“While ISK acknowledges the importance of freedom of association, the Institution is calling caution in its exercise to prevent potential abuse and infringement of other rights such as the right to property. It is crucial that appropriate regulations and oversight mechanisms are put in place to curb any potential misuse of this right.”
Institution of surveyors therefore demands that the registrar of society deregisters real estate associations run by non-professionals. They also demand the Attorney general wind up all land buying companies involved in land fraud in the past, among several other recommendations aimed at bringing sanity in the sector.
The institution of Surveyors of Kenya is under the wise leadership of the President Mr. Abraham Samoei.
