Why You Should Never Buy a Land that has a Power of Attorney as its Main Source of DerivingTitle

rsz_power_of_attorney_1

One of the reasons we see so many cases in court with respect to Land Disputes can be traced to this very Powerful but dangerous Document called a Power of Attorney or P.O.A.  A Power of Attorney is a written document given by Party A to Party B to carry out certain functions on behalf of that Party A within a specified period. Such functions and powers granted to Party B may include the power to sell, manage, buy, transfer, engage, refuse and administer the Property or Land of Party A till the expiration of the Power of Attorney.

Unknown to most people that grant a Power of Attorney to Party B, the Power of Attorney is only to last for 12 Months Only from the date it was signed after which it must expire and must no longer be in use unless it is renewed by Party A to Party B. The rules of a Power of Attorney is Very clear and Inflexible and within that 12 Months, the holder of that Power of Attorney can do and Undo and if not properly managed. Party B can wreck havoc on the lives of Party A and those that are to benefit from the Power of Attorney directly or Indirectly. CONTINUE READING

A-Z of Buying a Land in Lagos on a Prudent Financial Plan and not ending up Broke Stupidly

payment 1

Every day I get phone calls and emails from people stating their intention to buy lands and pleading with me for me to recommend good lands for them to buy that I think is an excellent deal and has no Omonile Wahala beseeching it but we all forget something very important that deals with buying lands in Lagos and that is the cost implications of purchasing a land. A lot of people think if they have some amount of money set aside in a bank, that will cover all the expenses required to purchase a land in Lagos and the rest is history.

But that’s where we are all wrong. Purchasing Land in Lagos is a Tough and difficult experience that requires skill, prayers, financial acumen and smartness. Many of the abandoned Lands scattered all around Lagos boils down to lack of proper budgeting and planning and that’s why so many Omoniles have the guts and opportunity to resell other peoples lands and today I want to us to learn from the experiences I have garnered over the years on how to properly budget and plan ourselves before we venture into the process of buying a land.

1. Never buy a Land based on Emotional Reasons:

Just because your neighbor bought a Land or colleague or family member recently purchased a Land and you have that same amount of Money lying dormant somewhere, you just decided to throw it into purchasing a land without any cogent reason to do so, you would run into a lot of futuristic problems and would be left with no choice in the nearest future but to resell it unceremoniously. You have no idea why your neighbour bought that land at that moment and what their account balance is right now compared to yours and what exactly they intend to do with that land. Follow Follow isn’t good without any concrete plan. Make sure you buy Lands because there is a concrete reason to do so and not just for emotional buying sake.

 

Learn to buy with your pockets first rather than emotional reasons. You could end up regretting it later

COURT THE CASE WAS FILED:                       IKEJA HIGH COURT JUDICIAL DIVISION

 

BRIEF SUMMARY OF THE FACTS OF THE CASE FILED:

 

The Statement of claim alleges that the Claimant bought the above named land situated at  46A AND 46B YETUNDE BROWN STREET IFAKO GBAGADA LAGOS MEASURING 1433.345SQUARE METERS from the Akerele Family in Ifako Gbagada and perfected his documents hereby procuring a a Certificate of Occupancy registered as Number 35A of 35A in Volume 2011 dated 27/1/2012 and built a face with a gate to protect it from usurpers .

He later traveled out of the country for 2 years with the hope of coming back to finish building on it only to returning back home to find out that his land has been encroached upon by unknown trespassers. He further states that the Omoniles  have taken over his land by reselling it to another group of Unknown persons who had since changed the padlock on his gate and were seen digging foundation on his land. He further claims that he had been denied access to build on his land peacefully because of the new encroachers whom the Omoniles resold his land to and he has gone to court to get a restraining order against them.

 OMONILE LAWYER FINAL THOUGHTS ON THIS LAND DISPUTE:

Thousands of Nigerians that have bought land in Lagos are well conversant with this experience the claimant is complaining about in his suit filed against these faceless trespassers of land.The question is how do you secure a land you have just bought and travel in peace for one year or two with the hope of meeting your land the way you left it. This is a very difficult problem Land owners face because these Omoniles are always patroling the areas to see if a land is vacant or unattended to with no occupier even if you have built a fence and put a gate there to secure it.

The best advice i can give someone here who has bought a land and has fenced it and wont be in the country for a while is to get a security guard to stay inside and watch over the place while you put sand and gravel in the middle and you write across the fences ‘ NOT FOR SALE” and the names of the contact address to get in touch with in case any prospective buyer who isn’t aware that the land has been sold intends to buy the land under a  fraudulent misrepresentation by the Omoniles.

(DEFENDANTS)

 

DATE THE SUIT WAS FILED:                           23rd of April 2013

 

COURT THE CASE WAS FILED:                       IKEJA HIGH COURT JUDICIAL DIVISION

 

BRIEF SUMMARY OF THE FACTS OF THE CASE FILED:

 

The Statement of claim alleges that the Claimants bought Acres of Land from the Oyetoro family of Onigbongbo in 1974 and they obtained certificates of occupancy to secure the lands after the sale. They took possession of the lands by clearing the lands and sand filling it and had no problems there until 2007 when they discovered people had been tressapssing on the lands.

When the Defendants where challenged, they claimed to have bought the lands from the Oyetoro family and the first defendant claimed that he specifically bought his own land from the First claimant the said “ Oba Nle Aro Trading Co Limited” who executed a deed of assignment for him  and he further used that deed of assignment to perfect his documents with the government.

The Claimants now claim that the deed of Assignment executed in favour of the 1st Defendant was a monumental fraud and that Oba Nle Aro Trading Co Limited did not excute a deed of assignment to him neither did the board of directors pass any resolution to sell to the 1st defendant the land in dispute.

OMONILE LAWYER FINAL THOUGHTS ON THIS LAND DISPUTE:

This is just baffling to put it mildly. If Oba Nle Aro Trading Co Limited say they did not execute a Deed of Assignment to the First Defendant, how then did the First Defendant get a Deed of Assignment from Oba Nle Aro Trading Co Limited? The basic rules of land transfer from a company to an individual states that there must be a company resolution to sell a property and it must be signed by a Director or Directors and the Company Secretary. How then did the first defendant get the executed deed of assignment from Oba Nle Aro Trading Co Limited when the Directors whose names have been bandied about are not connected to Oba Nle Aro Trading Co Limited?
