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…

Introduction   If you live in Lagos, you must be aware of the activities of land grabbers popularly referred to as “omo-onile” who have constantly taunted the public with their polluted habit of either selling a particular parcel of land to several persons.     Hereby dispossessing lawful owners from their lands or demand for endless charges from lawful owners of properties who have begun the process of building on their lands for roofing, decking, flooring etc.     Their activities have helped record a decline of investments in the real estate sector by investors in Nigeria particularly, Lagos state…

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…

Hard times await Omoniles in Lagos who intend to defraud people off their lands by selling innocent buyers other people’s lands and demanding foundation fees violently. I would attempt to break down the proposed law in a very simplified manner so as to know what this law stipulates and how to use it to your advantage against those bastards selling other people’s lands.   The Lagos State House of Assembly,is proposing a 21 years imprisonment for anyone convicted of land grabbing.
