“After A Property Occupied By Tenants Is Sold, Who Should Such Tenants Hold Responsibile?”

Tenants and landlords are bound by their tenancy agreements, whether written or oral.
During the pendency of a tenancy, the concerned property may be sold but both the old and new landlord MUST honour and respect existing tenants and their tenancy agreements. The old landlord is still bound to such tenants and their tenancy agreements. The new landlord cannot interfere with tenancy agreements between the tenants and the former landlord. A tenant can even challenge the title of a new landlord that became a landlord during the pendency of the tenant’s tenancy.

My authority is the case of ADEMOLA A. ODUNSI & ANOR V. DR. STEPHEN R. ABEKE (2002) LPELR-12167(CA).

“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.

Do you know that a tenant for a term certain (for a certain period of 1 year) upon the expiration of his rent & term does not need a Notice to Quit rather a 7 days Notice of Owners Intention to Recover his Premises.

See sections 7 and 8 of Recovery of Premises Act and equivalent laws in states.

(Tip 36)

A landlord is not expected to repay a tenant for repairs made by the tenant unless the landlord authorised the tenant in WRITING. So oral agreement between landlord and tenant over repairs to be done by tenant is not allowed in our laws. See section 15 of Recovery of Premises Act and its equivalent Laws in other states.

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.
