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…

Like a scene in one of these dumb Nollywood movies which we never really expect it to happen in real life, I came across one of the most elaborate hoaxes to defraud a client. Mr Babatunde through his agents was able to locate a property he was desirous of purchasing at Alapere Ketu Lagos.     After inspecting the property the agent now told him that it was a safe property to buy because it had a C of O. Mr Babatunde then decided to contact me to conduct a background check on the property and C of O. My…

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…

Buying a Land that is committed is a one-way ticket to getting your property revoked without compensation and if you foolishly construct a structure on it, it would be happily demolished by the Lagos State Government with no remorse.     There are so many wicked Sellers, Agents, Developers, Lawyers and Surveyors who knowingly take advantage of the ignorance of buyers to sell their lands that they know outrightly belongs to the government but due to their innate greed, still, go ahead to market the land for sale. They have no empathy or compassion for the victim and only see…
