National Assembly Propose Bill To Restrict Landlords From Collecting Yearly Rent

Picture-of-the-National-Assembly

The National assembly is deliberating on a bill to restrict landlords from taking rents from its tenants annually.

The bill which was tagged ‘Advance Rent for Residential Apartments, Office Spaces, Etc, Regulation Bill 2022’ was endorsed by Senator Smart Adeyemi, who is representing Kogi West.

The proposed bill is to limit a landlord from taking a maximum rent of three months from a tenant and anything higher than the stated months becomes an offense.

According to senator Adeyemi’s words during his interview after the first reading of the bill, he said living in an apartment in Nigeria serves as a great pain on poor Nigerians because most landlords “are compelling tenants to make one-year and two-year advance rent payments before they would give them keys to their apartments.”

In his full words, he said;

“We discovered that landlords are compelling tenants to make one-year and two-year advance rent payments before they would give them keys to their apartments. It may not be an issue to quite a number of people but to many others, it is a great pain for them. Most Nigerians need the protection of the law to be able to meet their basic needs after paying rent.

“Many landlords did not secure loans to build their houses; they are products of free money they acquire from the system. Yet, they make life difficult for poor Nigerians who do not have such privilege of making ill-gotten money from the system and put up structures.

“The buildings are constructed in such a manner that an average Nigerian would not be able to afford it. Many people are involved in corrupt practices to get their rents paid, while the ladies took to prostitution.

“The law we are proposing stipulates a maximum advance rent payment of three months. After the expiration of the three months rent, the tenants are expected to pay monthly.

“There are many tenants whose salaries are competing with their rents because they live in cities like Abuja. The law will prevent the poor workers from any form of oppression.”
