DAILY LAW TIPS by Onyekachi Umah,Esq. (Tip 132)

“The Condition For A Landlord To Refund His Tenant For Repairs Made On A Rented Apartment In Nigeria”.

It is not in all cases that a landlord is to refund his tenant for repairs made by the tenant on his rented apartment. The condition for refund is existence of a WRITTEN CONSENT. There must be a written consent by a landlord to a tenant, authorising tenant to repair his rented apartment before such tenant can seek a refund/set-off of money spent on such repairs. Courts in Nigeria will not order refund of money spent on repairs by a tenant unless there is a written authority from landlord consenting to such repairs. Oral agreements are not allowed!

My authorities; section 15 of Recovery of Premises Act, Laws of Nigeria(Abuja) and other similar laws across 36 states of Nigeria.
