In a bid to improve the turn-around-time for the processing of all land-related transactions in Lagos State, the state government has revealed that the processes will be undertaken online from the first quarter of 2021.

With this development, there would be no need for applicants seeking Certificat of Occupancy, C of O, Survey, and Building Plan approvals to physically submit paper documents for authorisation.

This disclosure was made by the Governor of Lagos State, Babajide Sanwo-Olu at the maiden Real Estate Marketplace Conference and Exhibitions organised by Lagos State Real Estate Regulatory Authority (LASRERA).

The Governor explained that the State’s Department of Lands had built the required capacity for a smooth transition to the online platform, stressing that the plan was already in its final stage and that the web-based platform will soon be launched.

“From the first quarter of next year, we will be launching an online platform on which all land transactions will be done. When the project kick-starts next year, there will be a one-stop-shop for all transactions relating to land, including the Governor’s approval on CofO, and building approval by the Ministry of Physical Planning and Urban Development.

We have given our commitment to this, because of the need to improve the turn-around-time from when people submit their requests for approval and the time the authorisation is completed.

We cannot afford to disappoint private investors and applicants seeking real-time approval. We are raising our capacity so that we can respond to the requests and discharge them” he disclosed.

On her part, Special Adviser to the Governor on Housing, Mrs. Toke Benson-Awoyinka said that the government is committed to bridging the housing deficit in the country.

“As a Government that is determined to bridge the housing deficit in the State, we are aware of our role in not just the provision of houses, but also create an enabling environment for the private sector working hand in hand to the desired end” she said.
