Tough time awaits ‘estate agents’ as Lagos tackles unauthorised practitioners 》REELPLUGMEDIA ⭐️

The Lagos State Government says it will tackle the menace of unauthorised real estate practitioners across the state.

The Special Adviser to the Governor on Housing, Mrs. Toke Benson-Awoyinka, said this in a statement in Lagos on Monday.

Benson-Awoyinka said the state government had planned a stakeholders’ forum for real estate practitioners, aimed at tackling the menace.

She said the one-day engagement, slated for Wednesday, had as its theme, ‘Lagos Real Estate: Achieving 21st Century Compliance.’


The SA said the theme showed that the state government was making efforts to eradicate the dubious practices of some real estate practitioners in the state.

According to her, the forum will help restore sanity and orderliness to the housing sector.

Benson-Awoyinka said a legal approach alone might not be enough to solve the problem of fraud in the real estate business in the state without the commitment of all the stakeholders.


She, however, said the present administration was determined to ensure conducive environment for seamless operation within the sector.

“I implore the real estate/agency businesses to cooperate with the state government, so that the state as a smart city would be made investors’ haven, not only in Africa, but the world at large,” she said.
