The most abused land scam gimmick today you hear from real estate companies, agents or marketers of land especially in Ibeju Lekki today is “EXCISION IN PROCESS”. They claim that their lands for sale are undergoing “Excision Processing” and the property already has a “FILE NUMBER” to hoodwink buyers to purchase their lands. Continuous usage of these words “EXCISION IN PROCESS” and “FILE NUMBER” are employed by these real estate agents or marketers to scam buyers and make purchasers feel very comfortable to buy their lands. Whether they say it innocently or negligently, it’s still a scam and buyers should beware of…

Real estate fraud especially in Lagos deeply hurt and affected over 500,000 victims last year and resulted in over N5 Billion Naira in losses traced to dubious real estate developers, unscrupulous agents, shady land or home sellers and deceitful Omo-onile customary landowners. Personally I have prevented over N300 Million Naira fraudulent land transactions this year alone and the numbers keep on increasing. Along the way, I have met smart buyers who claim to be very savvy in real estate matters but still ended up as victims to these property scammers because they refused to seek professional help from more experienced…

There are so many lovely properties out there for sale from N10 Million upwards to accommodate every wallet size but just like Omo-onile lands, I am beginning to see a proliferation of fraudulent property developers building dubious houses for sale. This issue has caused so many tears to many first time home buyers who did not conduct a proper property verification before they bought those duplicitous houses.   Personally, I prefer people buying built-up properties (if they can afford it) instead of looking for land properties to buy. The concerns associated with buying a piece of land in Lagos today…

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…
