Frequently Asked Questions - FAQ
In short, due diligence includes three simple steps: Performing a search at the District Headquarters, buying a map/ mutation and finally taking a surveyor with you to the ground for confirmation purposes. At ROAKI PROPERTIES, we have a team of qualified surveyors and we list only properties that have been verified in this way.
No, you cannot skip. If you do a search and not buy a map, then you cannot have a surveyor verify for you the ground (because a surveyor must use the map or mutation on the ground) and this might potentially make you a victim of land fraudsters.
YES. At ROAKI PROPERTIES we will only list properties that have passed the ROAKI test of genuineness but we fully welcome you to double check on your own if you so wish.
We have made this possible for you by attaching coordinates on every property listed and genuine on-ground photographs taken from the piece of property. No fake photos. If you see a road or a power line or any development on the pictures attached, be sure when you visit the ground you will find them. Long gone are the days when you were promised a shamba is near only to go and realize it’s too far inside! We recommend for you to input the provided coordinates on Google Earth to get a 3-D view.
