Nigerian man in tears after renting N2.8 million Lekki apartment only to discover service charge is N2.1m

A Nigerian man has revealed how he ended up paying over N7 million for a house which he initially thought was going for N2.8 million.

According to him, he was earlier told that the house rent was N2.8 million and he excitedly paid in a hurry and start furnishing the apartment.

However, after further investigation, he found out that he had an extra bill of N2.1 million for electricity.

The total amount he was supposed to pay for the house subsequently amounted to N7.3 million as opposed to the initial N2.8 million.

He tweeted:

“Saw a rent of N2.8m, and I rushed to pay. Only to find out later that the service charge for the year without electricity expenses is N2.1m. Lagos real estate companies 1 VS Harri 0.
Light consumption is N305/KW.

“As a remote worker who will be mostly at home and has a chandelier 86 inches TV, and other high-consuming electrical appliances, my electricity bill will amount to about N300k/month, N200k if I invest in an inverter.

“From thinking I’ll pay N2.8m rent in Lekki to paying N7.3m is wild. Can’t even ask for a refund because I have started furnishing and doing other things. Furnishing will take another N10m. I was wondering why they had a handful of celebrity tenants here. E don clear now.”
