Africa’s first Green & Smart Estate Demystified

Over time, since the past 8 years, the real estate sector has had a great change in delivering smart consumer eco-friendly home that is unique in all form, different from what it used to be in the 19th and 20th century. Only a few of them are built-in Africa and are rather called a “Smart Home” instead.

 

A green and smart home is an energy-efficient home built with smart home automation devices which control the use of water, electricity and gas. Which the end consumer (occupants) have access to them all at a snap of their finger or on a tablet, smartphones…etc.

This modern stylish built smart home is popular in the United States and the United Kingdom, according to S&P Global Market Intelligence, the number of US smart homes grew over 15 million by the end of 2016, representing around 12.5% of total US household. The year 2021 is predicted to record at least 28% of household in the US to be smart homes.

 

In the United Kingdom, approximately 6.6 million homes are rated as having poor energy efficiency. Which the clear need for more energy-efficient housing in the country, is on its way to becoming mandatory. 

 

At Gtext Homes, our presence in the real estate industry is about bringing a change from what the usual homes used to be, that’s why we’ve decided to be the frontiers of “Green and Smart” in Africa. Following the United Nations — Sustainable Development Goal for 2030, which goal Nō 7 state that “Ensure access to affordable, reliable, sustainable and modern energy for all” this is our drive to creating a better experience for our consumers (occupants). 

 

Pay attention to this… The uniqueness in our green and the smart estate is not only that it is built with a luxury aesthetic, fully furnished interior design, but it is built with the foremost known “Mechanical Stomach” called the biodigester, which helps in producing renewable energy like biogas, through waste. This helps a lot by saving you from air pollution, and unhealthy fuel for cooking. 

 

This Green and Smart estate is an amusing eco-friendly environment, where your safety, fun, relaxation, and serenity is all secured. You might want to call it a mini-city of wonders. 

 

One thing that stands sure in all we do to build affordable green and smart homes is that we are more deliberate about the choice of the location we build these estates, they are strategically located in the urban areas of the state or nearest location close to it. Which would be of great benefit when invested in.

 

Car charging ports as Tesla cars are already surfacing in Lagos and being a company that has INNOVATION as one of its core value, it’s good to think ahead as the residents will be high-class individuals that can own a Tesla, which makes it a smart move to provide a car charging port in case other electric car brands show up in the future.

You don’t want to miss out on owning this futuristic property as it would attract high net worth individuals (HNI) like the staff of Dangote refinery, Kellogs and many more who can rent for a short lease. This means you can buy and rent it out, while you get your income when due.

RELEVANT LAND DOCUMENTS IN VARIOUS PROPERTY TRANSACTIONS

In Nigeria as a whole there are various land documents, affecting the transfer of land ownership and legal interest in a property.

A prospective purchaser of land must be acquainted with appropriate land documents relevant to the property to be purchased. All documents are not mandatory or relevant to a single property, an appropriate document for any proposed property transaction will be determined by the nature or circumstances of the property to be purchased. Below, are some of the relevant documents for land or property transaction in Nigeria.

  • LAND PURCHASE RECEIPT

A land purchase receipt is a normal receipt or document reflecting the receipt of payment for a particular property or land. It is a normal tradition in property transactions that a vendor issues a receipt to the buyer upon the sale of a property.

  • CONTRACT OF SALE OF LAND

The contract of sale of land is used by parties to agree on some terms before the finalization of the transaction. It is relevant when any property is to be purchased by anyone. It is not a registrable instrument and must be preceded with other document transferring title in the applicable property.

  • SURVEY PLAN

A survey plan is used to identify the exact location and size of the landed property. With the descriptions and coordinates on the survey document, it is easier to check or search from the office of the Surveyor-General whether the land is actually under any government acquisition or not.

  • DEED OF ASSIGNMENT

Deed of Assignment or Deed of Conveyance is used in sales transactions to permanently transfer a landed property from the seller (also known as assignor) to the buyer (also refers to as assignee). It may be drafted by the assignor and reviewed by the assignee or vice versa.

  • CERTIFICATE OF OCCUPANCY(C of O)

C of O is usually issued by the state government, indicating that a person owns a parcel of land or property. Governments issues it to the allottees of the government’s land. An Individual who subsequently takes over land by way of sale does not require a new certificate of occupancy but rather a deed of assignment with the governor’s consent.

  • GRANT OF PROBATE

A grant of probate is a document derived after proving the will of a deceased person through inheritance in the probate registry. The document vests all the assets contained in the will into the executors of the estate, who are now recognized legal owners (beneficiaries) of the property in law. After the owner of any property has become late, all the property’s documents of such person are no longer valid to transfer any interest in the assets left behind by him or her. The Probate will now be the only recognized legal documents to prove the title to such property.

  • LETTER OF ADMINISTRATION

The letter of administration also vests the property left behind by a deceased person into the administrators of a specific estate. It is usually granted to the personal representatives of a deceased person where the deceased left no will before death or where the will has become invalid for any reason.

  • ASSENT

Assent is a legal document used to vest an interest in a specific estate into the beneficiaries of an estate or any third-party buyer by the executors or the administrators of the estate. It is always accompanied by a copy of a grant of probate or letter of administration.
