Welcome to the ‘Ember months! It’s now time to own your property with us.
Studies have shown a strong positive correlation between affordable housing availability and living standards, so it is not surprising that Nigeria has one of the lowest standards of living in the world when only 5% of the GDP is spent on real estate and only about 10% of that is spent on housing for low and middle-income Nigerians.
The National Housing Policy has emphasized a ‘housing for all’ policy but is in no way close to achieving this aim to the detriment of the everyday Nigerian who most likely lives in an urban area (60% of the population) and in a shelter that is deemed unfit for human habitation by international standards. That is if there is a shelter at all.
To achieve the injunction of the 1999 constitution that states that the Nigerian State should be required “to provide suitable and adequate shelter for all citizens”, it is important that all arms of government play a larger and more impactful role in housing provision across the country. The state governments, especially, need to increase efforts and regulations targeted at achieving this as they have greater control of the land needed for building new housing units.
The Land Use Act of 1978 has been a big part of the problems Nigeria has faced with providing housing for its many citizens. The act has had the effect of preventing private sector involvement in the housing market (without a matching increase in the provision of public housing) due to the difficulty of the procedure of acquiring legal ownership of land and it has also hindered mortgage financing. A study by the World Bank in 2010 revealed that Nigeria has the highest cost of property registration and transfer (27.1% of the total property value); there are 21 processes required and the process can take anywhere from 6 months to 5 years depending on the state and location in question.
There are 2 processes that most agree to take the most time – processing the certificate of occupancy and getting the Governor’s consent. This means that state governments themselves have a large role to play in making this process easier, starting by restructuring their own offices to work faster and more efficiently in processing important documents. Even more than just processing documents faster, state governments have the power to provide land for trusted private developers who will take on housing projects that are completed successfully. The governments can also ease the process by issuing certificates on time and without costs of bribery involved, ensuring that plans are inspected to show quality and provide approval immediately this is ascertained, providing in-state support throughout the building and sales process and preventing these private developers from taking advantage of the situation and charging exorbitantly to receive outrageous profits.
The state government should also be in charge of its local governments and customary systems to ensure that the frequent practice of double charging buyers of land and housing stops. Currently, many states experience double charges and much frustration due to situations where people who have paid for land are accosted by customary owners of the land (who already gave up the legal rights to the properties to the state governments) demanding that they get paid as well before letting the legal owner gain access to his/her own land. These practices will continue to divert money that would normally be invested in the housing market to other less contentious assets. On the other hand, the state governments must also realize that they must depend on local governments for information about the available resources, housing needs and unique characteristic of residents of the different LGAs. Lack of this coordination between state and local governments is one of the reasons government housing project plans to date have often become abandoned and/or unmanageable.
It is also important to consider the results of the Efina Report in 2010 that showed an estimated 90% of land in Nigeria do not even have legal papers. This essentially means that owners of this land are solely dependent on personal funds to build housing for personal use or rent because financial institutions generally will not give mortgages or loans to build housing on unregistered land (the land cannot be used as collateral). The onus is on the state government to encourage land owners to formalize their ownership or sell their land to the government, which will lead to the opening up of more land to build more housing and also give more land owners access to financing. The point about making the bureaucratic process easier also applies here as more traditional land owners will be willing to register their land officially is the process was simple and free of corruption.
So far, state governments have looked to the federal level for housing provision with the exception of a few states. This is not going to lead to efficient provision of housing especially considering that land provision is the most important factor in determining the number of housing units available. More public-private partnerships seem to be the way forward based on analysis of other developing countries that have seen large growth in housing and mortgage financing such as South Africa and Kenya. In holding state governments accountable, it is important that analysis of policies of state governments on the topic of housing focuses on the government’s commitment to such partnerships as well as the improvements in the land registration and transfer process.
Barely six months after unveiling Bluestone Treasure Estate in Mowe Town, the Management of Arc-View Investment Limited is happy to announce that the First Resident Landlord in the estate; Ms. Adegbesan has moved into her house. Coming in tandem with one of Arc-View’s promise to always deliver to its clients, the excited home owner was full of appreciation to the Management of ArcView for the dedication and diligence that has enabled her move into her property at her projected time without any hindrance.
Major milestones in terms of infrastructure upgrade and delivery within the estate have also been achieved. A bride linking the first phase and second phase of the estate has been completed, while pedestrian walkways attached to the bridge are also nearing completion.
Work is also in top gear to achieve the delivery of 10units of 3Bedroom Bungalows within the next two months in the estate baring any form of disruption from the Corona Virus lockdown order from the government. Each of the 3Bedroom Bungalow is to come all-ensuite with a guest toilet. It will also come with an anteroom, walk-in closet, dinning area, extremely large kitchen, family lounge and adequate parking space. Each unit currently sells for N12.5million with 15months interest free payment plan.
Plots in the estate are on offer for N4million (648sqm) and N2.5million (324sqm); also with a 15months interest free payment plan.
For every property investment, location is key. Bluestone Treasure Estate is located in the heart of Mowe Town; less than five minutes drive from Mowe Bus Stop on the Lagos-Ibadan Expressway. It is approximately 20minutes drive from Alausa in Ikeja and to get better at the completion of the Lagos-Expressway expansion project.
Infrastructure within the estate is topnotch and they include the following: perimeter fencing, electricity , well paved walkways, green areas, potable water supply, sporting facilities and recreation area. Title to the Estate is a Certificate of Occupancy meaning it has no encumbrance.
For a smart investor or prospective homeowner looking at buying a house or land within the Lagos-Ogun axis; this is another amazing opportunity from the stables of Arc-View Investment Limited. Like we always say, Don’t Wait to Buy, Buy and Wait. The right time to buy is now as prices are projected to go up by over 50% in the next six months.
In Nigeria, two guaranteed effects have already been established: people generally worried about contracting the virus and a consistent decline in income. While individuals are getting more concerned with survival, the willingness to invest in real estate is shrinking.
The commercial and hospitality sub-sect seems to be taking the first-hand blow. With compulsory lockdown enforced in the major cities, hotels, malls, restaurants, luxury homes, and office buildings are currently empty. A very important question is whether employers will be convinced to continue the work-from-home system even after the global health crisis. Another important factor that will determine office demand is if the Coronavirus decides to extend its stay, the demand for office space will definitely falter.
Moving on to rental apartments, property owners are bracing themselves to deal with tenants who have either lost their jobs or are currently experiencing acute salary cuts. In France, the government is cushioning the effect of the COVID-19 by suspending rent payment, this doesn’t look like a reality for Nigerians. In the long run, Landlords will have to manage rent-relief requests.
What happens to Landlords who solely depend on proceeds from their properties for survival? The answer to this question can only be determined by how long social distancing will last.
With the pandemic forcing more economies to focus on their health sector, importation of building materials will slow down. In the case of Nigeria, where foreign exchange is becoming a bigger challenge, importation will be costlier. An ensuing fact will be that home builders have to observe social distancing, which leaves property development hanging. Although this hasn’t happened yet, the Nigerian government still allows a maximum of 15 men on any building site.
Home shoppers/developers, on the other hand, are already pausing on purchasing decisions too, considering a possible crash in the stock market.
