In Nigeria, land tenure systems vary from villages, towns or cities. The thought behind land residency framework in Nigeria is to control land possession conduct in the country.

We’re going to talk about the following:

Tenants at Government Will
A tenancy-at-will is a property tenure that can be terminated at any time by either the tenant or the owner/landlord. It exists without a contract or lease and usually does not specify the duration of a tenant’s rental or the exchange of payment. The agreement is governed by state law and the terms can vary by state, though federal law comes into play in cases of discrimination

Rent Tenure System
In the rental tenure system, the tenant shall pay a certain amount for the period of use of the land to the named landlord. The rental period is relatively short compared to the lease system. Although this system discourages long-term plans on the part of the tenant.

Gift Tenure System

Gift land ownership scheme in which land rights are freely granted to an individual by the owner. It may be used as a source for a loan from financial institutions by the new owner, although land ownership may be revoked by a court order.

Inheritance Tenure System

In inheritance tenure system, land ownership is transferred at the death of the main owner to the next of kin. This system provides for children yet unborn but sometimes land allocation may lead to conflicts among beneficiaries and other family members.

  • Communal land tenure system

Systems that combine individual/family rights to land and natural resources with group oversight and rules to keep land within the group• i.e. mixed regimes, comprising variable bundles of individual, family, sub-group and large group rights and duties
