Real Estate Approval

The following are the various steps involved in the approval process of a simple residential development.

Steps

  • Step 1

    After you have purchased the land, and contracted your architect to come up with a design, you should instruct the architect to give you a copy first, which you will take to the planning office for vetting, to confirm if your design is in conformity with the approval standards and order for the area which the land is located. This will ensure that when printing the 5 sets for approval, there will be no errors, and no cause for you to have to pay the architect more money to make corrections that may be detected and observed at the planning office if you just take your full drawings at the end of the process.

  • Step 2

    If your proposed development is found satisfactory by the planning authority, assessment will be given. The assessment is based on the volume of your building multiplied by the rate applicable to your land location. Usually you are to raise 3 bank drafts for payment to:- The Lagos State Government, The relevant local planning authority of the land location and Lagos State Physical Planning and Development Authority. Depending on your proposal there are some additional fees that will be paid to the Lagos State Government. At these stage you are to know the various requirements to be submitted for approval as it concerns your proposed development, so getting them ready before payment is cleared will save you time.

  • Step 3

    Before submission of your application, you will be asked to take an officer of the Authority for site inspection (pre-site inspection). This is the first of 3 inspections that your site will be subjected to at the very least, the others being the construction inspection and post development inspection. The inspection officer is going to confirm if the site in question is the same as the one being proposed for development, and this can be done by confirming that the pillar/beacon numbers tally with the ones in the survey plan and also to confirm that you have not commenced construction before approval. He will also relate the site to its immediate environment to see if proposal is in conformity with the existing land use, and if the size of the plot is as presented in the survey plan and design proposal. Also other things such as physical texture of the land, sandy, firm, water logged or swampy will be taken into account. He will also confirm that the site is accessible. If the inspection report is satisfactory, the application will then be registered, provided all documents have been submitted.

  • Step 4

    This is the time that your application spends within the planning office, under processing.
