Sidekick by Sidebrief is here again. In this edition, we are highlighting Nigeria’s newest regulatory authority. Nigeria’s commercial hub, Lagos State, recently passed a Law to Regulate Real Estate Transactions in Lagos State and For Connected Purposes which aims to regulate Real Estate transactions, activities of registered real estate professionals and provide an avenue for the mediation of disputes in the real estate sector in Lagos State. Signed into Law on 7 February 2022, the Law establishes the Lagos State Estate Regulatory Authority which is charged with administering the provisions of the law, regulating real estate transactions, and settling disputes arising from such transactions. Just like every other week, we have our compliance update from your favorite markets across Africa, and finally, we’re still considering applications for positions at Sidebrief .We add new roles weekly here.
