Lagos State Government Advises Property Buyers to Always Verify Their Permits


The Lagos State Government advised residents, especially those who want to buy, lease or rent properties, to always ascertain if the property has relevant approvals from the government before making payment. This advice was given by the General Manager of the Lagos State Physical Planning Permit Authority (LASPPPA), Kehinde Osinaike.

He said, “I will advise anyone willing to buy or subscribe to a structure or building to henceforth request for evidence of planning permit (Building Plan Approval) and also ascertain conformity with the permit granted before committing their hard-earned money to the acquisition of such properties. This is for the purpose of guarding against social embarrassment and possible loss of economic deliverables from their businesses, through “seal off orders” for non-compliance.

“This warning becomes imperative based on recurrent observations made during the routine enforcement exercises by officials of the authority where it was revealed that some unsuspecting subscribers of physical structures usually get sanctioned by LASPPPA as a result of ignorance and their inability to carry out due diligence about the approvals on the buildings they subscribed to. Developers should desist from deceiving their clients about the available physical approvals on their properties.”

The general manager concluded by saying this warning will help to deter unsuspecting subscribers of physical structures and developers who are fond of deceiveing heir clients.
