Mortgage Advice Consultancy (Using Partners)
The mortgage advice business has spun off into a whole new separate aspect of real estate. It has to be handled very carefully so as not to disturb the client sensibilities, while at the same time build the basis for a continuing and ongoing relationship. At Fokes Property we choose to concentrate on the key tasks of buying, selling, and renting properties while leaving the mortgage advice business to our many capable local partners.
Property Flipping can be described as the process of buying, rehabbing, and selling properties for profit.
At Fokes, we offer the service of looking for the right property in a serene location at the cheapest price, help provide renovations service and sell or rent the property at the best price for profits. With our Architects and structural team, we can renovate, convert a 5 bedroom duplex into mini flat or office space and rent. We are in the service of buying, rehabbing and selling properties for profit.
Perfection of Title Documentation
Section 22 of The Land Use Act of 1978 states that; “it shall not be lawful for the holder of a statutory Right of Occupancy granted by the Governor, to alienate his Right of Occupancy or any part thereof by assignment, sublease etc. without the prior consent of the Governor”. What this mean in simple language is that even if a property has a Certificate of Occupancy which makes the beneficiary the legal interest holder on the land, if he decides to resell or do anything with the property, since the land is held in trust by the State Government, the Governor needs to approve that transaction. Otherwise, the title that will be transmitted is not perfect and it means that the final authority on landed matters is not aware of the transaction and the implications can sometimes be grievous. At Fokes Property, we ensure all transactions or dealings with our clients are as smooth as possible. We take pride in handling all work meant to be done with the satisfaction that our clients are as comfortable, at ease and relaxed as possible.
At FOKES PROPERTY, When purchasing a property for clients, we take it upon ourselves to be sure that what is being bought is genuine and will not be sold to anyone else after making payments, it is important for the buyer of the property to obtain proper title if none existed before, or perfect the title if the one already exist in the buyer’s favor.

Property development is a distinct and separate field from property management. Developing a property needs a whole separate set of administrative and management skills involving labour, material and project management. It requires developing building plans, getting them approved from the concerned authorities, and then hiring and managing different work teams to get the project underway. It involves everything till the final completion of the project and handover to the owners from the building contractors.
