GROW HOUSE

What does it mean to Grow House, through the GrowProperty feature on Landshop?

GrowProperty is one of the distinct features of Landshop, which enables you to buy a house in small units called slots. Rather than worry about the stress of paying millions for a house, GrowProperty allows you “grow” the House, by buying it in bits and according to the amounts you can afford at any point in time.

How does it work?

This feature allows you co-own residential properties in slots across Nigeria for a period of time and allowing you earn fixed returns on the property annually.

You also have the opportunity to keep buying additional slots until you own the entire house.

What is a slot of a House?

The slot of a House on Landshop, represents 5% of the total cost of the entire house.
Accordingly, every house available under this feature of GrowProperty, is divided into 20 equal slots and offered for sale to subscribers.

You can start your selected slot payment with a minimum of N50,000 and spread the balance over the space of 12 months.

How safe is my investment?

The title to the entire house you are buying slots from is held in trust on behalf of all subscribers by a Trustee (third party company) that ensures your ownership is secured.

Do I automatically own the house once i start buying in slots?

Yes, if you have paid out for the whole house.

A square meter is simply an area with the shape of a square that measures 1 meter on each side. It is used for measuring areas of anything from rooms to houses to land and has the sign m².

To build on it, you need to have up to 300 square meters to get a physical allocation. However, if you own between 1-299 square meters, you co-own the Land with other subscribers and are only able to benefit from the value appreciation or derivable income from the Land.

If I purchase a few square meters, would I be given allocation immediately?

What other payments do I make apart from land payments?
