Hello, I would like to make an enquiry please. In the event of a yearly rent which expired last month but tenant could not move out because of the interstate movement lockdown but the landlord had been notified that rent wasn’t likely to be renewed – what’s the duration of the quit notice such a tenant needs to be served by the landlord?
Thank you for contacting us.
If the property is in Lagos and under the jurisdiction of the Lagos Tenancy Law 2011, then there is no need for a quit notice. This is because the law states if the tenancy is for a fixed term, and the term elapses, then the Landlord can proceed to issue a 7 day notice to recover possession without the need for a quit notice.
