How Deceitful Sellers Lure Innocent Buyers To Buy Lands With Fake Governor’s Consent

0 COMMENT

Property buyers especially in Lekki, Elegushi, Agungi, Ajah, the Eti-Osa Environs and parts of Ibeju Lekki should be very wary before buying a property that has a Governor’s Consent because most of these Governor’s Consents have been questionably acquired at the land registry.     This is because falsified and forged survey plans have been presented by the Owners to the land registry to register. Due to the lax and porous process of obtaining a Governor’s consent at the land registry, dubious owners have perfected the art of presenting forged survey plans that are outside the original location of the…

Don’t be confused. Rectification and Ratification means 2 separate things but they sound alike. Rectification means to correct a grave error on a document while Ratification means giving formal consent to a contract or agreement thereby making it validly official.   To understand how Rectification of Title to Land differs from Ratification of Title to land, we have to understand what a Land title means so we can comprehend it quite easily.     WHAT IS LAND TITLE?   Land title may be defined as the rights or ownership claim a person has over a property. It simply means, for…

In legal circles, the word “indemnity” is used in contracts. It means recompense for any loss or liability which one person has incurred. It has been defined as an obligation undertaken by a person called the indemnitor/indemnifier to provide compensation for a particular loss suffered by another person called the indemnitee/indemnity holder.     A claim to an indemnity can arise by either by operation of law or by contract. It must also be noted that an indemnity can be made subject to the rules of damages. The indemnifier bears the primary obligation with regard to the amount of the…

A deed of Assignment is one of the most important documents YOU MUST HAVE when you conclude a Land Transaction. In fact it baffles me that 6 out of 10 people I know who have bought lands in the past have no deed of assignment. They are always the first to complain that Omonile has defrauded them but they have no proof to show the property has been sold to them other than a receipt.     It’s funny that everyone has the title documents to their car showing who the seller was and how it was transferred from the…

What is a Gazette?   A Gazette is the most bastardized word Land Sellers have peddled around to Purchasers and its the most confusing document that non-land experts have heard and know absolutely nothing about. They neither know what it looks like nor its perceived advantages or disadvantages.   Even why it is one of the most important document you must be connected to unless your home could be demolished in future for it not being associated with it. Now before we talk about what a Gazette is, we have to Know what an Excision is and how they are both…

So many Academicians, Lawyers and Intellectuals have tried to define what a Governor’s Consent is and they end up confusing simple minded men like me with their Big Big Grammar, so am going to attempt to do the impossible by breaking its meaning down and how it operates under the law.   A simple formula to follow is this. The first person on a Virgin Land that has neither been occupied by another person nor under acquisition by the Government is entitled to get a Certificate of Occupancy on that land.   If that person with the C of O…
