  • The application, affidavit and letter should be submitted to the Registrar of Titles at the Lands Registry, Alausa.
  • The applicant then proceeds to the search room where a bill is issued.
  • The application will be assessed and the applicant will be required to pay the search fees of N3, 750 (it could be more in some cases depending on where the property is located) at one of the designated banks (Access Bank or Zenith Bank).
