Property Verification ₦70,000

Out of every 10 houses we verify for buyers, less than 4 are suitable for purchase. 6 either have a title defect, have serious encumbrances or have hidden legal issues.

We are trusted partners experienced in helping property buyers avoid falling victim to fraudulent property sellers.

Many houses and properties in Nigeria are built on illegal and encumbered land. Meanwhile, unscrupulous sellers seek to sell such bad properties to unsuspecting buyers. Most property buyers are unaware of hidden problems and defects at the point of buying land until  land issues arise and they have lost millions of Naira.

At Landcheck, we believe every land buyer has a right to know the hidden things about the land such a buyer intends buying. 

Landcheck operates a ZERO TOLERANCE POLICY FOR BRIBERY AND CORRUPTION. It is our policy to conduct all of our business in an honest and ethical manner. We do not receive bribes or other inducements from property sellers, agents, developers, professionals or other parties. We do do not accept bribes or inducements in any form.
