Documents You Must Check Before Buying A Land In Nigeria

Before getting involved in any transactions regarding land purchase you should check out the available land documents in Nigeria.

It is crucial that any person planning to buy landed property should know and understand the types of documents that regulate land transactions. It is a shame that only about 12 percent of land buyers know and appreciate what each land documents mean and what they represent.

One of the most effective methods of claiming land ownership as well as in trades of any landed property is by providing title documents that are effective and recognised by various government rules and laws on such landed properties.

The implementation of each of these title documents would help to make the ownership claim or transaction legal after approval from the relevant government offices responsible for the problems of all landed properties in Nigeria.

Here are the important land documents that you should know before purchase of a land in Nigeria:

  1. Certificate of Occupancy
  2. Deed of Assignment/Conveyance
  3. Deed of Lease
  4. Deed of Sub-lease
  5. Land Certificate
  6. Deed of Mortgage
  7. Survey plan

As important as it is to know these things, one thing you must not fail to do is to seek the guidance of a real estate consultant or trusted company.
