In a petition filed at Milimani Law Courts on Tuesday, LSK asks the court for an injunction barring the ministry from implementing or mandating electronic filing of conveyancing documents.
It also wants CS Farida Karoney ordered to establish a task force comprising all stakeholders affected by the electronic registration and conveyance system.
The team should be mandated with creating guidelines for the implementation of the electronic registration within two months, the society says.
LSK says it is concerned that the notice issued by the ministry has, with effect, discontinued manual transactions at both the Nairobi and Central registries.
“The land registration regulations which set up the legal framework for electronic conveyance are pending before Parliament in accordance with the requirements of Statutory Instruments Act,” it states .
The society also claims that here was no public participation as per the requirement of the law.
