10 Risky Areas In Lekki/Ajah To Verify Before You Buy A Property

Demolition season in Lagos is in full swing and owners of Multi-million Naira Mansions in Lekki/Ajah Environs are living in constant fear not knowing whether their house will be the next one to crumble under the bulldozer because the house they bought either has no valid government title, has questionable Certificates of Occupancy (C of O) or Governor’s Consents, absence of building plans, is built close to the canal or government easements or has a court case hanging on it.


Many of these owners of houses in Lekki Estates were swayed by polished Instagram Videos of persuasive Agents marketing these properties without paying attention to due diligence. Many of them bought these houses due to the pressure of the Agent telling them to buy them quickly because other people were on the property ( Real or Imaginary). Many of them were swayed by the marketing gimmick, lies and bullshit of the Developer or Agent to buy these houses and many were extremely ignorant about how to buy a house in Lekki and just had Millions to spend without verifying.


A common regret now unites these homeowners is that they all live in fear and wish they did not buy these houses in these areas without verifying them.
