“The Condition For A Landlord To Refund His Tenant For Repairs Made On A Rented Apartment In Nigeria”.
It is not in all cases that a landlord is to refund his tenant for repairs made by the tenant on his rented apartment. The condition for refund is existence of a WRITTEN CONSENT. There must be a written consent by a landlord to a tenant, authorising tenant to repair his rented apartment before such tenant can seek a refund/set-off of money spent on such repairs. Courts in Nigeria will not order refund of money spent on repairs by a tenant unless there is a written authority from landlord consenting to such repairs. Oral agreements are not allowed!
My authorities; section 15 of Recovery of Premises Act, Laws of Nigeria(Abuja) and other similar laws across 36 states of Nigeria.

Firstly, in Nigeria all lands are vested on the thirty-six Governors of the States of the Federation as guaranteed in our conservative and over-due for amendment; Land Use Act of 1978. Consequently, the Governors hold the whole land in trust for the people except those owned by Federal Government and its agencies. Owing to the above fact, a Governor can only grant a Rights of Occupancy for a certain period of time. To quickly understand this subject matter, please read my article; RIGHTS OF A TENANT.
