A Nigerian lawyer has taken to Twitter to state that landlords cannot unilaterally increase rent without an agreement with his tenant.

According to @Egi_Nupe_, both the landlord and tenant must agree before rent is increased. He also advised tenants to insist on a quit notice if a landlord insists on increasing rent.

The lawyer further disclosed that after the expiration of the quit notice, only a court order can eject a tenant from the property.

He Tweeted;

”Your landlord cannot unilaterally increase rent, both of you must agree. If he insists, tell him to serve quit notice. After the expiration, only a court order can eject you from the property.”

Following the controversy that trailed his tweet, he added;

”It’s the lawyers capping in the comments section for me. Apparently, most of them are those advising their clients-landlords to disregard tenants’ rights. They issue irregular quit notices, advise landlords to resort to self-help and frustrate tenants.

If not, why is it hard to have an understanding with a tenant before increasing the rent? Why do you want to eject a tenant without quit notice or court order? What does it profit you to lord over tenants and abuse their rights cos you own the house? Terrible much!!!!

The message was clear: agree with your landlord on rent increment. If you don’t agree, then do the proper thing. But you are all in the comment section capping and expecting a detailed syllabus on tenancy law.”
