The Debo Adejana Real Estate seminar comes alive this month, and if you’ve never attended before, this is an opportunity of a lifetime to join the going train of real estate in Nigeria.
This edition promises to be educative, impactful and insightful especially for landowners who are on the verge of starting construction work on that piece of land in Lagos or Ogun state.
So, if you are that person who intends to start a building project soon in Lagos and Ogun state, you won’t want to miss this seminar even for your wedding.
Now, here are three reasons you should attend the next Debo Adejana Real estate seminar;
1. Why obtaining a building plan approval is non-negotiable
After ownership of land, one of the most intricate aspects of erecting a structure is processing a building plan approval. Having buildings erected on a large expanse of land without building plan approval is like running a government without laws guiding it. Building plans are the first tangible thing that depicts the picture of the buildings we have imagined. Building plans are the graphical representation of what a building will look like after construction and also helps in the process of evaluating the cost of erecting such a structure.
In most countries, it is customary to obtain a permit or approval from appropriate authorities and Nigeria is not an exception. A building plan approval is necessary before construction can commence.
I believe the case between the Lagos State Government and the Synagogue Church of All Nations (SCOAN) is still fresh in our minds. One of the issues that came on the front burner during the trial of the persons involved was the authenticity of the building plan approval submitted as exhibit in court, and if at all there was even a building plan approval or building permit from the outset.
The rate at which Lagos state is going with her development plans and adherence to the state’s master plan, many buildings without a building plan approval may soon be leveled to the ground. It is therefore necessary for awareness to be created on the importance of a building plan approval and processes involved in its issuance.
This will be extensively dwelt on during the next Debo Adejana Real Estate seminar which is slated for August 13th, 2016.
2. Avoiding con artist
It is common knowledge that the real estate sector is beleaguered by many fraudsters who defraud unsuspecting victims of their lifelong savings, while on the verge of what should have been one of the greatest investment of their lives. It therefore becomes imperative for people to look before leaping while getting involved in one of the most sensitive investments of their lives. And even when leaping after doing your due diligence, it is still expedient you delay your landing for a split of second to be sure you won’t be changing course in the dying minutes.
The fraud in real estate comes in diverse ways and processing your building plan approval may just be one of the avenues you can be found wanting. If you think you know it all, the Debo Adejana Real Estate seminar might just prove otherwise, and there is just one way to find out!
3. Processes Involved to make it stress-free
The very first thing to do when you want to commence construction is to obtain a Development Permit from the Lagos State Government and the office in charge is the Lagos State Physical Planning and Development Authority (LASPPDA), a parastatal under the Ministry of Lands and Physical Planning
However, getting a building plan approval is not a walk in the park, that is why some landlords forgo this very essential and delicate aspect of building construction and home ownership which would later spell doom. The stress involved is hugely a turn-off.
Some people don’t even know the first step to take while others can’t stand the heat in the kitchen when it comes to the bottlenecks inherent in the whole process.
This seminar will not only educate and enlighten you on the various steps involved in obtaining a building plan approval, it will also put that belief in you that getting a building plan approval for your building project could just be a walk in the park.
Debo Adejana will take you through the whole processes involved and maybe you might even have a building plan approval for your next or first building project before you leave the venue on the said date.
Are you still in doubt? Then make it a date with Debo Adejana, a top-notch real estate professional, and you might just be on the path of erecting a building and seeing it to completion without any fear of an impending doom in the nearest future.
