ThE Lagos State Real Estate Regulatory Authority has called on stakeholders to protect the real estate sector from risks emanating from impostors and transactional issues.

The Special Adviser to Lagos State Governor on Housing, Mrs Toke Benson-Awoyinka, disclosed this in a statement on Sunday to announce the third edition of a conference and exhibition programme for real estate practitioners and potential clients in Lagos.

She said, “The third Lagos Real Estate Market Place Conference and Exhibitions has been scheduled for Tuesday 6th and Wednesday 7th December 2022, at Eko Hotel and Suites on Victoria Island, and discussions at the event will be in form of a town hall meeting on ‘The Lagos real estate emerging markets – Mitigating potential risks.”

“There is the need for stakeholders in the real estate market to protect the sector from impostors whose actions portend great risk to the real estate market in the state and seasoned speakers are already billed for this year’s conference to deliberate on potential risks in real estate transactions, laws that protect real estate investment transactions, policies and guidelines about Lagos State real estate sector.

“LASRERA will continue to play its role as the state government’s regulator in the built sector, to strengthen and curb the potential risks for investors/investees in the market, and individuals/organisations that are yet to register with the agency can do that at the conference event.”
