LAND MEASUREMENTS AND SIZE

DID YOU KNOW?
 Most people who purchase lands in Lagos don’t really understand the meaning of this Real Estate terms. As a potential buyer wishing to buy a land or build a new house you must be conversant with a few of this figures. The first hurdle is to understand the system of Land measurement in Nigeria.
In Nigeria today, Land is measured in Hectares, Acres, Meters and Feet. These measurements are affected by factors, which includes development pattern, human and environmental factors.
Lets start by asking what is the size of standard plot in Nigeria?
According to the dictionary meaning of a plot: A plot is a marked out piece of Land for the purpose of building or farming. The word ‘plot’ is an arbitrary term used to describe a land division carved out for property development.
The size of a plot can vary for different reasons but according to Nigeria’s land division, the appropriate plot for a house construction is 50 x 100ft which can accommodate a standard house with a small compound. To better understand Land divisions used in Nigeria, different units of area are used as follows:
Hectares (ha)
A hectare is one of the lease known metric units and one which potential buyers and Estate developer seems to struggle with – it is a land measuring 100m x 100m OR 328ft x 328ft OR 10,000sqm. It is about two and half acres. A Hectare consist of 15 plots.
ACRE
An Acre is a standard unit of measurement used by Land sellers and it is almost equivalent to the size of a standard football field. An Acre is a product of any rectangular plot of land giving a total of 4,046sqm OR 43,560sq ft. An Acre consist of 6 plots each measuring 6 x 120ft.
In Lagos State, the standard size of a plot is 60 x 120ft ( 18m x 36m ie 648sqm), while in some other cities of the country, plots are measured in 50 x 100ft.
Most of the properties we sell are 600 square metres as full plot 400 square metres as half plot.
We choose to 400 square metres as our half plot because 300 square which is an exact half of 600 square metres would provide a narrow fully detached building, and individuals buying from an estate would want to have their compound to themselves, however if you have a 600sq metres you can build 2 semi detached duplex on it
And on 400 square metres you can build 1 fully detached house on it. A semi detached house means 2 buildings side by side, a fully detached house means a house standing on its own.
 400 square metres is 40 by 100
600 square metres is 60 by 100
400 square metres is smaller
600 square metres is bigger
 Lagos state surveys measures 648 square metres as a plot , but most estates sell 600sq metres in order to have set back and all, but measuring from the natives you have 648 square metres but measuring from estates a plot mostly goes for 600 square metres.

Understanding Land Titles in Nigeria 

A Gazette is an Official record book where all special government details are spelt out, detailed & recorded.
A gazette will show the communities or villages that have been granted excision and the number of acres or hectares of land that the government has given to them.
It is within those excised acres or hectares that the traditional family is entitled to sell its lands to the public & not anything outside those hectares of land given or excised to them.
Question: Is excision as good as obtaining c of o?
Is a person having excision still mandated to obtain c of o?
Answer: After a land has been excised & Gazetted, then you can either process your C  of O or Governor consent.
Excision does not expire while C of O expire after 99 years.
The only advantage C of O has over Excision is that, it can be used as collateral for getting loan in the bank
DEED OF CONVEYANCE
Deed of Conveyance or Registered Conveyance was the authentic evidence of ownership until 1978 Land use Act that introduced Certificate of Occupancy.
Deed of Conveyance is old legal document used in transferring the interest of the owner of a landed property interest to the person to another whom it is assigned, the assignee.
When ownership is transferred, the new legal document in use now is called deed of assignment.
CERTIFICATE OF OCCUPANCY
A Certificate of Occupancy (C of O) issued by the Lagos State Government officially leased Lagos land to you, the applicant, for 99 yrs.
All lands belong to the Government.
GOVERNOR’S CONSENT
A governor’s consent can only be processed on a land with either Gazette or an Existing Certificate of Occupancy (C of O).
If a person with land with C of O decides to sell his land, the only documents that can give the new buyer or every other subsequent buyers the right of occupancy or ownership is a governor’s consent.
The powers of the Governor to consent to such transactions can be found in Section 22 of the Land Use Act of 1978 which states thus:
*’It shall not be lawful for the holder of a statutory right of occupancy granted by the governor to alienate his right of occupancy or any part thereof by assignment, mortgage, transfer of possession, sublease or otherwise howsoever without the consent of the Governor first had and obtained”*
This simply means therefore that even when a buyer has secured a land with a Certificate of Occupancy, he shouldn’t stop there.
He needs to begin the process of obtaining a Governor’s consent to make that purchase legal in the eyes of the government & be rest assured his land is safe.
DEED OF ASSIGNMENTS
Most people have the title documents to their cars intact & in safe places but fail to ask for the Deed of assignment to their properties which is several times more valuable than cars
A Deed of assignment is one of the transactional document drawn up by a real estate attorney between the current title holder for a particular property & the new buyer.
In real property transactions, a deed of assignment is a legal document that transfers the interest of the owner of that interest to the person to whom it is assigned, the assignee.
When ownership is transferred, the deed of assignment shows the new legal owner of the property.
The deed contains very pertinent information for a real estate transaction. It spells out the date when the ownership of the property transfers from one owner to the other.
The deed also gives a specific description of the property that is included in the transfer of ownership.
It is very compulsory & mandatory for a Deed of Assignment document to be recorded at the appropriate land registry to show legal evidence as to the exchange of ownership in any land/landed property transaction in order to make the general public and government aware of such exchange or transaction.
Question: How long does it usually take on average for a land to be fully excised?
Answer:  Excision is given by the Governor of the state & there is no specific time for issuance of Excision. Sometimes, excision can be delay due to political reason.
Once a C of O had been issued on a particular land, it’s takes 99 years before it can expire after which it can be renewed.
You can not process C of O on land that already has C of O.
C of O is C of O everywhere. When they said Global, it means the C of O in questions covers a very large expanse of land.
Question: How long does it usually take on average for a land to be fully excised?
Answer:  Excision is given by the govenor of the state and there is no specific time for issuance of Excision. Sometimes excision can be delay due to political reason.
Question: Does this mean that Lands has to at least be excised before it can be sold or transferred to someone else” ?
Answer: You become rightful owner of the land once the government released it to you via excision.
Though Governments recognise ancestral land ownership as excision is the right of the indigenous land owners.
