DAILY LAW TIPS by Onyekachi Umah,Esq. (Tip 137)
“IT IS AN OFFENCE FOR A NON-LAWYER TO PREPARE A LAND OR TENANCY AGREEMENT IN NIGERIA”.
In Nigeria, only Lawyers are authorised to make, prepare and write land and tenancy agreements of any type for a fee. Hence, no other group, society, business, cyber cafe, person or profession is allowed to prepare land or tenancy agreements in Nigeria. It is an offence punishable with imprisonment and or fine for a non-lawyer to prepare a land agreement for a fee in Nigeria.
My authority; section 22 (1)(d) of Legal Practitioners Act.
