Most people who purchase lands in Lagos do not even really understand the meaning of these important real estate terms. As a potential buyer wishing to buy a land or build a new house you must be conversant with a few of these figures. The first hurdle is to understand the system of land measurements in Nigeria.

In Nigeria today, land is measured in Hectares, Acres, Meters and Feet. These measurements are affected by factors, which includes development patterns, human and environmental factors.

Let’s Start By Asking What Exactly Is The Size Of A Standard Plot Of Land In Nigeria?

According to the dictionary meaning of a plot, A plot is a marked out piece of land for the purpose of building or farming. The word "plot" is an arbitrary term used to describe a land division carved out for property development.

The size of a plot of land can vary for different reasons but according to Nigeria's land divisions, the appropriate plot for a house construction is 50 x 100ft which can accommodate a standard house with a small compound. To better understand land divisions used in Nigeria, different units of area are used as follows:

Hectares (ha)

A hectare is one of the least known metric units and one which potential buyers and estate developers seems to struggle with - it is a land measuring 100m x 100m or 328ft x 328ft or 10,000sqm. It is about two and half acres. A Hectare consists of 15 plots.

Acre

An Acre is a standard unit of measurement used by land sellers and it is almost an equivalent to the size of a standard football field. An acre is a product of any rectangular plot of land giving a total of 4,046sqm or 43,560sq ft. An Acre consists of 6 plots each measuring 60 x 120ft.

In Lagos the standard size of a plot is 60 × 120ft (18m × 36m ie 648sqm), while in some other cities of the country plots are measured in 50 × 100 ft.

@ maersk,
Thanks for the write up. for more accurate size of a standard plot;

60 x 120ft = 7200sqft
7200sqft = 668.88m2

668.88m2 is the standard size of a plot

Regards

Multiply 18 by 36 to get your square meter for a plot

Delta state and probably a few other states regard 100ft * 50ft as a plot
