The Lagos State Government has issued a stern warning to individuals and entities operating in the real estate sector without proper registration with the Lagos State Real Estate Regulatory Authority (LASRERA). The warning comes as part of efforts to ensure transparency and combat fraudulent practices in the real estate industry within the state.
 
Moruf Akinderu-Fatai, the Commissioner for Housing in Lagos State, delivered the cautionary message during the 2024 Ministerial Press Briefing commemorating the first year of Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu's second term in office. He emphasized the necessity of adhering to LASRERA registration requirements to maintain integrity and legality in real estate transactions.
