“Landlords Are Entitled To Rent Sum Even Where Notices To Quit Are Served On Tenants”

“Notice To Quit”, “Seven (7) Notice Of Owner’s Intention To Recover Premises” and even “Court Summons” when served on a tenant does not mean that such tenant will not pay for any arrears of rent or rent (mesne profit) anymore for any extra period spent on the property.
Hence, a Tenant MUST pay for all the period he spent on a rented property not minding he was served Notices or even taken to court.

My authorities are sections 12 and 13 of Recovery of Premises Act and other similar laws across the states.

“Effect Of A Notice To Quit In Nigeria”.

First of all, a “Notice To Quit” (Quit Notice) is an Information from a landlord or his agent to a tenant, informing the tenant that the tenant should leave the landlord’s property once the present rent(tenancy period) expires. It may be a week, month, quarter or half a year depending on the tenancy agreement between a landlord and his tenant or by their type of tenancy. “Notice to Quit” should be given during the existence of a tenancy period and should expire ealier or on the same day that the tenancy period will expire. Hence, it is not suppose to be an extra period (not even a day extra) after the expiration of rent(tenancy period) for a tenant to stay, search for another house and pack out.

My authorities are sections 7, 8 and 9 of the Recovery of Premises Act (LFN,ABUJA) and other similar laws in the other 36 States in Nigeria for recovery of premises, the landlord and tenants matters.

Just as the human fingers vary, so do human status, situations and endeavours vary. At different times, locations and situations in life you are either a tenant or a landlord or even both. You may be the owner of your residence while you are a tenant in your office complex. They can never be a tenant without a landlord. For more on landlords rights and duties, read my article; RIGHTS OF A LANDLORD. Due to the African undue attachment to land and landed property so much attention and superiority is added to the status of “Landlordship”. This makes up for the ill treatment the so called landlords do met out to their often poor tenants.
