What is C of O?

C of O means a certificate of occupancy is a legal document issued by the Lagos state government conferring an owner the right to land. Getting a C of O on land requires a due process that may not be easy to some interested investors, so they prefer an existing land with such title which many feels is safer and secure than land under excision.

A land with C of O shows that all necessary documentation has been processed and the right to ownership is conferred on the whoever is selling the land which directly eliminates doubt.
