A landlord is the owner of a house, apartment, condominium, land, or real estate which is rented or leased to an individual.
Landlord and tenant WAHALA are among the most contentious after issues of land ownership in Nigeria.
Some Nigerian landlords and landladies treats their tenants like some piece of shit and invading tenants privacy. In fact, the primary complaint of tenants is that many landlords do not mind their own business. They tend to interfere in the personal space of their tenants and seek to control everything happening in the property.
If your landlord live in a portion of the property where he or she could easily see you always, you are finished kpatakpata. This is also one reason why several tenants are not happy living in the same compound or building with their landlords.
A tenant’s personal space is important to him since he has paid for it and it is his right to quietly and peacefully enjoy that space. Undue interference and control of the tenant due to this proximity are unacceptable.
