You're a dangerous person.

Why should you spoil someone's property out of anger?

He's betteroff without you in that house.

brother real estate is analog in a digital world. Some people just like to be free to move around the world without ties to brick and mortar. After their one year lease is up in banana island they move to Thailand and pay another one year rent and live in Thailand . Many young cosmopolitan Nigerians are starting to live like this

Yes. There are folks who live this way but they can't live like that forever moving from place to place.

Also, if they are moving to expensive cities like N.Y for instance...they would be paying more in housing and utilities...they can't even afford a mansion in those expensive cities.

Let me ask you boss:
Can you pay 20million for rent in Nigeria?

I have been having some issues in my room, I live with my mum and sister , it's a 3 bedroom flat, we pay 1.4m yearly and we've paid 3 times, last payment was in may.

My landlord increased the pressure point of our water in the compound and now water gas been leaking, pipes got burst in the wall and water has been coming out from walls and pop, I started complaining last month but they didn't do anything about it, it got to a point when the water was too much in my room, I wanted to get my landlords attention so I had to spoil our pumping machine and I brought out all the dirts in our dustbin, I acknowledge my mistakes but it was out of anger.

My landlord confronts me and we got into an argument and we insulted each other, I know i was wrong but if I didn't spoil that pumping machine, the landlord wouldn't have called plumber to repair the issues I was having in my room, I even discovered that i wasn't the only one experiencing such thing, my neighbors too were also having that same issues.

According to my landlord, he said he's not the one collecting money from us, we paid money to agent and if we have any issues we should contact the agent, this particular agent is his elder brother but this my landlord is living in our compound with us, though he has numerous houses.

Now my landlord said he doesn't want to see me again in his compound and has threatened my mum with quit notice, he said it's either I leave the house or my family would leave , he instructed the gateman not to open gate for me again or else he'll sack him. My fellow nairalanders I really need your help, how will I go about this?

Modified; The landlord threatened to call police if he ever sees me in his compound, he said he'll win me in court and it's malicious damage to his property, mind you, there's no evidence that I committed the offence, our gateman was the only eye witness.

Bros go and ask for forgiveness. You don't have power na to run come complain to nairalanders.

hehe Chief this ain’t even about me like that but what me I dabble in is a specialist field. I dabble in diagnostic cardiology as well as in Astrology. These are not fields that I can teach you . You have to actually go to university. It’s medical diagnostics. You need to be speaking to the guys into coding .

Landlord has given him options to choose from:
Leave the compound and I won't serve quit notice to the rest of your family. Or,
Remain in my compound and I will legally evict you and the rest of your family. The choice is his. grin grin grin
let him serve his nonsense quit notice. You can't tell a member of a family not to enter the house because you dislike one of them. To hell with him and his house

Honestly bro, if your name is not on the lease, then you are a trouble maker.

if you go to the police or court, you will not win because you intentionally damaged a property. you will have to replace it with a new one and pay for other damages.

You know the house is not yours and you dey fight landlord. The laws states that, if you are having problem with the property, you are allowed to break your lease and leave the premises. no where did the law advise you to damage properties and fight with your landlord.


in other words, my people abeg subscribe to my channel. i need 500 sub, i go reward with urgent 2k.

You went too far, I no gree, I no gree na im dey tear clothes, you for call plumber and fix the water issue nah, you have mentioned that you people have been paying money to his senior brother, if the agent did not fix, you could have ignored them and fix it, it wouldn't have cost you much.

However, he does not have any right for his actions.

I can't arrest the man,he has money, he has more than 5 houses and you know how Nigeria is, na person wey get money dey win case, if we're to leave the compound by quit notice, yeah he'll give us 6 months to leave but the problem now is the house is really good, big parlour, new house, security and all those stuffs, we won't be able to see a house with that standard and price[i][/i], that's why my people are scared of the quit notice, now another problem is because they're women, it would have been another thing if they were men, they wouldn't be scared.


I know I made a mistake by spoiling the machine, it was just because of anger, but I'm sure the landlord's threat was an empty one but my mum and sis are just scared, the man can't afford to lose 6 months rent, that's over 700k

The part that always baffles me is for tenants to know the comfort they are having in an apartment yet they will do anyhow simply because they are paying rent that are even lesser than what better people that know the worth of the apartment, including peace of mind would pay.

Anyway sha, na Quit Notice dey open una eyes.

You shouldn't have damaged the pumping machine...
No matter what, always involve the services of the Police...
As regard your banning from entering the house, your landlord has no right to restrict your movement..
Infact he has no right chase u out of the house..
If you are in lagos, you are entitled to "Six(6) months quit notice" after your rent expires or he refund your remaining rent and still give you the quit notice...
Or you carry police arrest am..


@me
By understanding is that he is not the tenant but his mother. The rights that you are stating doesn't cover him.

You are right ..

Secondly he is a very dangerous person..

They can even call him a criminal..

Why did he go as far as spoiling the pump?

Guy just find how you will beg him, see if you take the man to court or get police to arrest him as some people are suggesting, highest it'll still end in you and your family leaving the man house because at the end of the day he's the owner of his house, I understand your fear, couple with your fear of leaving that particular house, is getting another spacious house and if it's Lagos that Agreement and commission money is not funny.

You no try at all. Bury the thought that you will spend six months without pay for whatever reason, that’s not the position of the law. Now listen, go to the nearest police station, explain your predicament, let them see clearly that you are remorseful, tell them that all you want to do is to beg the landlord passionately. You tell the police that you just want them to invite him and not arrest him. When the landlord comes you should start prostrating to him from the gate of the police station. Every police stations has a section that deals with “mediation”, I believe they can help you out. But learn courtesy next time.




Malicious damage is a criminal offence punishable with 2 years imprisonment under section 451 of criminal code. grin so going to the police is not an option. Infact the landlord is being merciful to him, because if he decides to press charges, the testimony of the gate man,is enough to nail him.

Where is your location? Just like Yoruba proverb which states that; “If they chase out of the house, they can’t chase out of this world”, once your rent is due, search for another house, this I told you was the beginning of my breakthrough and I thank God for leaving my previous landlord.

Your family should let the landlord know h h at you’re the one paying for the house rent.

No one is entitled to 6 months quit notice after their rent expires, what you are entitled to is 6 months quit notice before the expiration of your rent, I don't know where some of you guys get this erroneous notion from, so your rent has expired and you want to live in someone's house for six months free..

You are wrong, what the law says is a tenant is entitled to be given a 6 months quit notice before rent is due, not after.
What it means that a landlord that does not want you in his house anymore has to have given you the notice six months in advance, not that after your rent is expired, you will love in someone's house for six months without paying rent, it is a popular erroneous belief I have seen here on nairaland so often
