Hello,

Does anyone have an estimate of how much it costs to get a C of O for land? The land is located in Benin City GRA. Thanks!

I will give you an idea with what is obtainable in the East.

1 For most of the survey plan I did, it cost me 35k

2 Architect's plan depends on the building you have in mind and the Architect. For a 3 storey building, I paid an Architect 150k to draw which also includes the approval from the local governemnt

3 I think the tax clearance of Niger state is good enough for any state. TAx clearance shows you are up to date with your taxes. Consider this, you are working for a federal establishment in Abuja and ur taxes are deducted at source before you get your salary and you now need a C of O for your land in the village say Anambra state, will they ask you to get a clearance from Anambra too? Dont know shaa as Nigerian things and thier systems amaze me

I spent 30k to get my tax clearance through my guy who knows his ways around in Enugu. It doesnt have a fixed price

@ Abujabooks.

I like your interest in properties. Have been following your thread and posts. Keep it up. We need more smart chics and ladies who know what they really want and what they are doing

As to your questions, i will try and fill in the blank spaces as much as i can.

1. As for the survey plan prices, that would be the exclusive preserve of estate surveyors on Nairaland to answer.

2. As for the structural building, i would prefer you inquire more about this from Third eye. He is a guru in this department and his opinion would be highly valued there.

3. As for the tax certificate of Niger, it cannot be used outside niger state to purchase a state land. You have to get the tax clearance of that state you intend to do business with in your area. In abuja, it is the federal tax certificate you would need to purchase property.

4. As to using the architechural building plans of the previous one, i think it would be acceptable since building plans are prone to change every now and then. The bottom line is just to provide one.

Cheers!

@Chykeo, Lawyer and Ajileko,

Cheers.

I have educated myself by reading Lawyer's thread on "C of O".

If you dont reside in Nigeria and you need to clear the tax clearance part when you want to register your c/o, it costs N60,000 flat payable to the land registry.

The land registry wont take any other kind of document from you. If you insist, then you would be treated like an Alien and you would be required to get the governor's consent to acquire land in Lagos.

Cheers!

@Ajileko and everyone,

I read Lawyer's thread and it states, I need the following:-

a) Survey plan

b) Structural drawing

c) Tax clearance

d) Legal fees

e) Purchase receipt.

My questions are:

How much is it to have a new survey plan?

How much is it to have a structural or architect's drawing of what I want to build on the land?

Can I use the Tax clearance issued by Niger State, which will expire this year?

Can I use an architect's drawing of another property, since I will be selling anyway?

Chykeo,How do you go about getting the 3 yrs tax clearance if you are not residing in the country, or is there any other document they will accept in place of the Tax clearance?

Documents needed:

deed of sale

and receipts

lease

3 years tax clearance

. My attorney did it with 90k

Like I said, everything varies from state to state
