Over the years, omonile lawyer has saved clients millions of Naira from land fraudsters. Here are some of our success stories we are proud of
A client in Dubai was asked to buy Jeeps worth N 15,000,000 in exchange for three plots of land at Igando Orudu by some family members. They claimed the plots fell within the Igando Orudu village excision. Our search revealed that the lands were government Owned.
We were able to detect a N4,000,000 scam for a land at Ikorodu for a client. We realized that the seller had previously sold the same land to another person who did not take possession some years back so the scammer was hoping the first buyer would not show up again.
A client in the U.S was looking to go into a survey sponsorship arrangement with some landowners at Mopo Ibeju. These landowners prepared a dubious N35,000,000 for the sponsorship budget that actually cost N9,000,000. Their aim was to milk the client dry.
A woman was trying to sell two plots of land at Langbassa worth N17,000,000 to our client without the consent of her husband who is also a co-owner of the property of a Jointly owned C of O. She lied that her husband was dead but refused to produce a death certificate.
We saved our client the sum of N28,000,000 from a dubious man who attempted to sell three plots of land behind Monastery Road, Sangotedo. He pretended as if he was the real owner but was just a relative of the actual owner who was asked to look after the property.
We received a brief from a client to investigate a prime property he was looking to buy at Sangotedo for N7,000,000. We discovered that the title documents of the seller were expertly expertly forged hence the reason why he was desperate to sell at a ridiculous price.
A woman was hoping to sell a sham plot of land to our client at Badore for a sum of N9,000,000 and claimed that the land fell within the Oketiri village excision. A detailed search conducted by our team found out that the property was within a committed government acquisition.
A client who was desirous of purchasing an acre of land at Elerangbe almost lost a sum of N11,000,000 to a real estate company. We discovered that the excision was fraudulently obtained by the sponsors of the excision and the customary landowners.
A man who sold a bungalow to our client for N13.5 Million during Christmas at Igando also re-sold the same property to another person 1 week after for N17 Million Naira when our client traveled for Newyear break. Omonile Lawyer recovered the full sum back for our client.
A client nearly lost 21 Million Naira to a fraudster who stole his father's C of O for a property at Ketu. Since they both shared the same first name, he tried to impersonate his dad and even switched the picture in the C of O to deceive the client. Omonile Lawyer prevented the fraud.
