Every prospective land investor either as an owner, buyer or seller should take ample time to investigate some basic information from the Government about the property he/she wishes to acquire.
Such basic investigation only requires basic information such as: is the land an acquisition land?
Charting information is making request from the Government to ascertain whether the land is free from government acquisition or not.
Charting information is quite different from Land information in the sense that you do not need to submit Red Copy, Evidence of Submission to the Surveyor General’s Office. You can get Charting information report with just a provisional survey.
Why is charting information necessary?
Majorly for prospective land property owners, especially those who are interested in investing into the business to know whether they can purchase the property.
It clarifies the status of the property from the government perspective which stands as an integral factor to consider before attempting purchasing any property.
Procedure to Obtaining Charting Information
The procedure is quite easier than Land information as it does not require Red Copy, Survey documentations.
It is rather a simple step of;
- Writing an application letter to the Surveyor General’s Office requesting for a report on the landed property
- Attach a copy of provisional survey.
- You may be asked to make some little payment (details may be provided at the Surveyor General’s Office).
