Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to our numerous readers



We would be looking at safety tips to take when renting a property in Lagos, this tips would help you not to get into trouble with real estate agents or Landlords in Lagos

Basically everyone in Lagos think they are real estate agents

Be very wise in Lagos

Lets Get Started

Do not go for Real Estate Inspection alone, this advice is for ladies in particular.

Do not rent a property close to the express way

Make sure you go with a friend possibly a male person to go with you for real estate inspection

Do not go to unfamiliar places alone.

Double check real estate agency background.

Do not pay rent to any agent

Insist to pay rent to Landlord or representative of land lord

In some cases insist on meeting the landlord

Do not pay rent for a property under renovation, even if you do pay during renovation collect the keys

Immediately after payment for rent, collect keys from agent

Immediately after payment collect receipt for apartment

Inspect Apartment location, go around and ask questions from people who live around the apartment

Thank You and a Happy New Year

Nice one though, if you're paying let say constant rate of 500k per annum as rent, it means in 10years you must have pay 5m to your landlord.

2020 is here, let up our games and choose more reliable path.
Once you're financially able to, plan, buy your own land and secure the future.

Here you meet real estate Consultant, buy land and wait.

1. Many of your points are repetitive.

2. Why can’t you rent a place close to the express way?
This is largely relative - because, in a place like lagos where you need to beat the traffic to work everyday, living close to the expressway is your best bet.

3. I quite agree with you that it is necessary to do a background check on the house before paying for rent. Some houses have huge amount of debts on Nepa bills etc.

Ensure you pay your rent when due. Every Landlord loves tenants that pays. Don't come with stories that your mother-in-law just kpeme, or business no move.

You have entire 1year to save the Landlord money. Put the landlord as your #1 priority and u won't have any problem.

Very important, maintain the house when u are given the keys.

This is more of a sponsored thread than you actually advising against danger.

And most of your claims are not true. Thousands of inspections are conducted daily on Lagos. The % of those that went wrong as a result of their or attack on women are less than 10 over 100
