“IT IS AN OFFENCE FOR A NON-LAWYER TO PREPARE A LAND OR TENANCY AGREEMENT IN NIGERIA”.
In Nigeria, only Lawyers are authorised to make, prepare and write land and tenancy agreements of any type for a fee. Hence, no other group, society, business, cyber cafe, person or profession is allowed to prepare land or tenancy agreements in Nigeria. It is an offence punishable with imprisonment and or fine for a non-lawyer to prepare a land agreement for a fee in Nigeria.
My authority; section 22 (1)(d) of Legal Practitioners Act.

Hello, am glad to have your eyes on this page. On last edition I wrote on “Safest Means of Purchasing rural Land” which dwelt on the purchase of land under customary law which often occurs in our villages. I highlighted the legal requirements and steps to a successful land transaction under such law. Now is time for us to take a deep dive into land transaction under our statutory law. It is for land transactions in our towns and cities. I urge you to learn as much as you can and save yourself embarrassment.
