Things to Consider Before Buying a Land Plot in Dodoma National Capital City

For most people, owning a house is a fantasy and pride, but it’s always become difficult when it comes to deciding between whether to buy a house or to start with acquiring land plot. Taking all considerations into account, with its high re-sale value, purchasing a plot area is a better investment choice.

Before purchasing a residential plot, there are some factors which you must bear in your mind:

Whether the Land is a part of any acquisition process:

It is also important to know if the property is under the process of acquisition by any government authority which under Laws of Tanzania is possible. If the property has been acquired by the government, then the property ceases to belong to its original owner and becomes the property of the acquiring authority. Thus, the property so acquired cannot be sold or alienated further by the original owner of the said property, unless the property has been released from the acquisition process. For the case of Dodoma City, our company has vast years of experience with master plan of Dodoma City, this puts LandLai at edges understanding politics of Land acquisitions by authorities on areas which are not yet surveyed.

The legitimate Owner and Status of the Seller.

This should come as the second stage after understanding whether the land is under acquisition process or not. Before doing any transaction for the purpose of acquiring land plot? What is your preference? You must also satisfy yourself on the status of the owner of the land plot. This is very important.

First of all, we normally recommends Real estate companies not individual seller, things like whether the company owns a land check, status of its returns whether they are  up to date? Its articles of associations if allows a company to sell the property. This due diligence process can be carried by your lawyer or yourself in case you’re quite experienced on doing companies’ due diligence.


When you plan to purchase a residential plot, this is a very important reason. First and foremost, the essential public services and parts of the town must be easily accessible from the plot you intend to buy. Be sure that in faraway places you don’t get tempted by cheap offers. When it comes to having better returns on your money, position is also a huge factor!
