…Says It Will Bear Applicants’ Cost Of Survey, Planning Permission

…First 2,000 Applicants To Enjoy Discounts

Oyo State Government has launched a digitized Certificate of Occupancy issuance platform, as part of its strategy for growing the Gross Domestic Product of the State.

A release issued by the Commissioner for Lands, Housing and Urban Development, Barrister Abiodun Abdu-Raheem noted that the processing and collection of Certificate of Occupancy are now faster, easier and affordable.

While he urged all eligible property owners without title or approved documents to take advantage of the opportunity, Abiodun also revealed that Oyo State Government will ensure all landowners in the State have digitized title documents by December 2022, amidst the accelerated provision of digitized title documents.

Abdu-Raheem said “the processing and collection of Certificate of Occupancy would take only Sixty (60) days under the Oyo State Home Owners Charter (OYHOC) scheme. While Government will bear the cost of survey, planning permission, and all other relevant documents for applicants who do not have them under the OYHOC scheme”.

“Records have shown that majority of residential landed properties in Oyo State have no registered titled documents leaving such property owners open to many risks, hence the need for the C of O”, he added.

According to the Lands helmsman, all C of O’s issued under the improved OYHOC will not only be digitized, for ease of authenticity confirmation, they would also be the same legal instrument as any other C of O being issued by the Government.
