CHAPTER ONE

INTRODUCTION

1.1    BACKGROUND OF THE STUDY

Housing is one of the most basic needs of man second to food and followed by clothing. As man continues to undergone changes from one stage to another, the need for decent housing keeps arising. Increasing human population and advancing technology have increased the need for housing. This need overtime have been addressed through the provision of residential property by developers who in turn collect rent from the tenants. Increasing demand for housing which keeps rising above the available supply has given rise to hike  in rental price of housing, especially residential housing.

Housing as a basic need is being provided by the public and the private sector. The private sector which is a major provider of housing do so at exorbitant prices and employs various methods in collecting rents. However, the process of rent collection in residential properties is marked by problems which often lead landlords to take extreme measures to ensure that rent is collected. Sometimes too, landlords and tenants do engage in long legal battles which often times linger  on over a long period of time.

Measures to address the problems of rent collection have been adopted by the public and private developers. The government have enacted rent control edicts and rent tribunals to help to ensure that rent collection issues are properly handled with minimal disagreements. Rent collection is a method of residential property management for both the public and private providers of housing. It involves the collection of an agreed sum of money after a specified period of time which could be monthly, annually or bie-annually as the case may be. Rents collected on residential property are used to manage the property and rehabilitate the property if necessary. This helps to increase the life span of the property. Rent to be collected on a property is usually subject to increment after an agreed period of time in order to accommodate inflation.

Rent collection in Nigeria as well as in Enugu metropolis is the principal duty of the provider of the housing. However, this duty most times is delegated to other parties who collect rent on behalf of the owner. Such delegation is usually made to Estate Agents, caretakers or any other representative who engage in contractual agreements on behalf of the landlord both for rent collection and admittance of new tenants. Estate Agents when acting on behalf of landlords charge monthly or yearly fees for their services. These fees are added tot eh rent payable by the tenant, further increasing it.

        The government as a provider of housing have made several attempts to address the issue of rent collection in Nigeria. Laws such as the rent control and recovery of premises edict and other similar laws found in various states are some of the measures taken by the government. The rent control edict has been adopted by various states of the federation to reflect their peculiarities. These laws cover areas such as fixing of rent, mode of collection and increment.

Rent collection on government owned residential property has lesser problems than that of private individuals. This is often the case because tenants perceive the government as having the power and right to eject them from their houses more than private individuals. Therefore, they easily comply with the payment of rent without delay whether the price is high or not. The mode of collecting rent from tenants by the government which is usually through government agencies also help to reduce the problems of rent collection  on government owned residential property.

1.2    STATEMENT OF RESEARCH PROBLEM

        The process of rent collection on residential property has a lot of challenges. One of such challenges is delay in the payment of rent. Some tenants fail to meet u ewitht he agreed dealine for payment. This could be asa result of delay in the payment of wages by their employers, increase in rental price, the effects of inflation, among other factors. Delay in the payment of rent often results to the tenant being penalized by paying extra on the agreed rent. It could also lead to legal battles between the landlord and the tenant, which may lead to the forceful eviction of the tenant.

        Another challenge of rent collection is in the area of regular increment. This condition may arise when the interval for rent increment is not specified in the ‘Tenancy Agreement’. This leaves the tenants at the mercy of shylock landlords who increase rent at will. Similarly, when property owners delegate their rights as landlords to agents who act on their behalf, these agents charge service fees which are added to the rent price. This is usually perceived as rent increment by tenants. In addition, most landlords do not give enough time  or even formal notice of increment to tenants. These problems leads to delay in payment or even refusal to pay.

        A third challenge is the absence of any signed document of agreement between landlords and tenants. Such a document which should contain details on the amount to be paid, when to pay, and whom to pay to, when absent can result to problem when rent collection is due. The absence of a ‘Tenancy Agreement’ may bring disagreements between the landlord and the tenants on whether rent should be paid annually or monthly as the case may be. 

        Rent collection becomes problematic when the property in question belongs to  a family and the members are having disputes as to who rent should be paid to. In addition, when the landlord and the tenant are engaged in legal battle, the tenant may likely decline from paying rent until the matter is determined. To achieve this, the tenant may device a means of making the case to linger, during which rent is forfeited.

        Other problems of rent collection arise from continuous inflation and increase in the cost of raw materials which in turn increases the cost of rent.
