ABOUT THE BOOK
Real property means land and the things attached to it so as to become part of it. The law of real property is that branch of law which deal with systematic expression of the degrees and forms of control, use and enjoyment of land which are recognized and protected in law.
The basic rule under customary law is that land belongs to the villages, communities or families with the Cheif or Headman of the community or the family as the “manager” or “trustee.” The Land Use Act has however, divested landowners of radical title to land and vested same in the Governor of the states for the beneficial use of Nigerians. To be valid, alienation of proprietary right in land must satisfy certain requirements of the law both in form and content. This book has set out, in sixteen easy-to-read chapters, these intricate details of the law and practice relating to real property in Nigeria so as to simplify the search by law students, Lawyers and other professionals in this lucrative field, for up to date materials.
