BUYER ARRESTED FOR BUYING FAKE PROPERTY

How often will people continue to fall prey to deception. Here is the story of a man I call Osakwe, who bought a property with ten rooms(Brazilian Design, or what we call face -me -I -face -you)on a 100 by 100feet dimension for a ridiculous N2M. The property in question was a family house. In such  a case, a lot of persons have stake on the house. Therefore  selling it would not be easy-it takes the consent of every member of the family to get it sold.
There were eight persons in that family.  The family head had died a few years ago. Meanwhile, a lady in the family, for a long time, had been nurturing the idea of selling the house, and without the knowledge and consent of the other family members.
One fateful day, an unwary buyer was found. He liked the property very much especially as it was cheap. Arrangement went in place quickly to finalize the purchase. The lady smuggled out the document of the house. Also she arranged for people to pose as family members endorsing the sale. They all signed the necessary documents. The client quickly made payment. As soon as the transaction was closed, they bolted away. Trouble was brewing.
When the other family members learned of it, they arrested the buyer.
HARD LESSONS FOR ALL
1.       Be careful when a property is too cheap, because this is one strategy used to deceive buyers to buy dubious property.
2.       Don’t be in a hurry to buy, slow down
3.       Carry out all investigations before buying
4.       Do not buy property on your own-you need the services of experts  in the field to guide you through the entire process
5.       When it sounds too good to be true, then it is not

A CLEVER COMMUNITY CHAIRMAN OUTWITS HIS COUNTERPART

First and foremost I treat the identities of both communities as anonymous. Community clashes is a frequent phenomenon in many parts of the country. For  unknown reasons fight erupts without warning; so it happened in a particular community. some rascals took a boy to this community and killed him there.
The community woke up to see corpse in their land. They quickly concluded that the rival community did it. The community chairman was furious, and went back to the drawing board to plan a counterattack. Then a clear plan emerged.
In the evening of the following day he threw a birthday party. A lot of guests were invited. The DJ started to thrill the audience with melodious and romantic tunes. Drinks were many, food was surplus. In the midst of this, the chairman mobilized his boys and launched an attack on the rival community. They were successful. The other community was caught napping. The following day report was made at the station about the surprise attack. The one fingered for the offense, slipped away without guilt. It was difficult for the police to believe the story since the chairman had his birthday the night of the attack. Indeed, the birthday party was used as an excuse, a smokescreen or scam to carry out the attack.

WHEN LANDLORDS FAIL TO COOPERATE

So many communities experience lack of cooperation from landlords. Some roads or streets have fallen into disrepair and inaccessible by cars because of lack of willingness on their part to fix the road periodically. What is usually required is just to fill up the road with red sand and hire tractors to level it. The other day, a landlord was complaining to me about how he single-handedly brought in a tractor to fix the road. Prior to this, he had asked others to make some contribution for that purpose, but they, except one, turned a deaf ear.
It was not that they were not having money but rather simply refused- a case of stinginess. Where  I live, the street is not motorable. There are large pools of water that served as a breeding ground for mosquitoes. My landlady tried to ginger others to contribute some money to buy filling sand and then fix the road. Out of about 11 landlords, only three contributed. The remaining eight said that the erosion did not affect them, for that reason there was no point contributing.
This is the situation in so many streets today. Lack of community spirit is affecting the rate of development in most areas.

FOUR BEDROOM BUNGALOW: ITS IMPLICATION NOW AND IN THE FUTURE

A lot of potential home owners make mistake when conceiving the kind of house they desire. A case in point was a family of five. The breadwinner decided that his three daughters would each have separate rooms. The wife also had her own separate room. The husband was not left out, he reserved spacious room for himself.
With this arrangement, it is hoped everyone would have peace and high level of privacy.
LONG TERM IMPLICATION
When the daughters were all grown up, each left for University. Later, they all got married in turn. Now only the couples are left behind. The many rooms now lay empty. The man wanted to rent out the rooms, but there was a problem: how could he share his sitting room or lobby with a total stranger, a tenant! Loneliness was gradually creeping in. At least they need the company of someone in the compound to do cleaning. It seemed to be the best option.
The only solution to this problem is to reshape the house i.e carve out a room and parlour selfcontain. HMM. Easier said than done. This will gulp some money, especially now that he has  dwindling resources.
MY ADVICE FOR OTHERS
Whenever you are thinking of building a bungalow, you must consider all the factors or what will happen when all your children leave home.

7 WAYS TO SCREEN YOUR TENANT

These days some landlords are scared of giving out their house to tenants. Some who have had a terrible experience with tenants are reluctant to accept just anyone. In this regard, landlords conduct a thorough screening exercise. Some take a step beyond this. This reminds me of a particular apartment at ugbighoko. The previous tenant damaged a lot of the facilities: the tap knob was broken, shower no longer working, the doors  were in bad state, the ward-drop doors were fallen.
To worsen the matter, the tenant packed out secretly. This angered the landlord. To forestall this ugly situation, the landlord decided to charge N20,000 caution fee for any incoming tenant. This fee would be used to repair any damaged facility when the tenant is moving out. But if no damage, it will be refunded.
SCREENING YOUR TENANT PROPERLY
Before ever you give out your house to tenants you need to find out the following concerning them:
1.       The size of their family, who and who will squat with them later
2.       Their office, employer, etc.
3.       Their habit: is he a smoker or drinks alcohol a lot?
4.       Their referee
5.       Their previous residence and find out why they were leaving
6.       Is he or she troublesome?
7.       Does he or she have a good maintenance culture?
Apart from the foregoing, you need to dig deeper especially if the tenant is occupying the entire compound. You have to be very careful in this regard. Some tenants who have the entire compound to themselves sometimes get involved in questionable activities. Some compounds become a safe haven for criminal activities. Monitoring tenant activities in a situation like this is difficult.
