Certificate Of Occupancy Lagos Nigeria - What Is It Worth?
Certificate of occupancy issued by the Lagos state government officially leases Lagos land to you, the applicant, for 99 yrs. Why the need for a certificate of occupancy or C of O?
That is the duration specified by the land use Act. In simple words, each C of O issued in Nigeria has a life-span of 99yrs.
What happens after 99yrs?
What about the local indigenes who originally owned the land before the government promulgated the infamous land use act? What do they have left?
Fortunately, the government recognizes that indigenes of different sections of the country have a right to existence . . . a right to the land of their birth. Hence, it is customary for state government to cede a portion of land to the original owners (natives) of each area.
