Therefore in doing business in Nigeria, one of the most important issues to think about is how to secure your place of residence and business as a Nigerian or a Foreigner.

It is a platform where you can ask questions and get instant answers on your property needs. We have tried to provide a guide to the laws governing acquisition and ownership of land in Nigeria for both Nigerians and Foreigners. We also tried to examine some Laws regulating ownership of land/properties in Nigeria. We have provided some information on who can own land in Nigeria, how to acquire land in Nigeria (government allocations, estate ownership, individual/corporate ownership and the very contentions issue of family land).
We discussed property documentations e.g. Certificate of Ownership (C of O), Governor’s consent, deed of assignment, power of attorney, registration of title and what constitute title to land in Nigeria.
