Things we Look out for when carrying out a Property or Land Inspection in Enugu

Published date: June 10, 2019 | Category: Real Estates Contractors | Location: Enugu North, Enugu, Nigeria

When Inspecting a Land in Enugu. With our experience of real estate, we have come to understand that there are a number of things that need to be evaluated before purchasing a parcel of vacant land.

Find below a general checklist we use when inspecting and evaluating a piece of land.

Legal Concerns
Is the land buildable?
what is the size and shape of the land?
Are the boundaries clearly and accurately marked?
Does the land have a clear and verifiable title?
Does the land have any usage restrictions?
Is it zoned for the type and size of property we are planning?
Where can we build on the site?
Does the proposed house plan violate any rules: setbacks or other zoning restrictions, septic rules, rights-of-way, or other regulations?
Does the soil percolate?
Is the property located in a flood zone?
Is there a high seasonal water table, seasonal streams, or low-lying areas subject to flooding?
Are there areas subjects to erosion that will need stabilization?
Is the land accessible by road? who maintains the road?
Is there adequate access for construction equipment?
Are there problem soils, including expansive clay, un-compacted fill, or ledge that may require blasting.
Are there nearby nuisance such as unwanted noises, smells, or hazards?
Distance to major places, work, shopping, restaurants, etc..?
Future development nearby: houses, commercial development, roads, highways.

Before we buy a house or land , insist on carrying out a thorough property inspection. If the property owner refuses to allow this or appears reluctant to honour this request, that alone should be considered a red flag.

It should never be done in a hurry. We are entitled to a reasonable amount of time to inspect the property before we make a decision. Inspecting a property does not mean we have to buy it. After the inspection, We can decide whether we are buying or have concerns.
