Recently just realized the papers for my house C of O, and other relevant documents and receipts. Please i need advise from experienced estate agents, and lawyers on steps to follow in acquiring a new one as soon as possible. Thank you.

You have to apply for another one at. It's going to cost you a couple of hundred thousand naira.

Lol... you don't just apply for another CofO

You have to go to court and do an afidavit

Get a police report.

Do a publication with a newspaper as to loss of document, preferably PUNCH

And go to the Ministry of Lands in Alausa, if you reside in Lagos that is, if not locate the ministry in the state you are. They will take it up from there.

You will probably be given a copy of what they have and stamp as a certified true copy I doubt they will reissue another one for you. I may be wrong but it's likely

Thanks alot! I was at a Police station to get a statement and they asked to submit some vital documents to them, I didn't feel okay leaving such sensitive document with the police, knowing how 'reliable' nigerian police can be!
