The Land Use Charge is backed by the Land Use Law which was introduced to harmonise all Land based rates and Property Charges (such as Tenement Rate, Ground Rent, Neighbourhood Improvement Charge etc) which are usually collected
by the State and Local Governments under one single charge for ease of administration and collection.
Non-compliance will result in sanctions being imposed on the affected properties in accordance with the provisions of the law, until all outstanding taxes, penalties, and administrative charges are paid. All revenue payers on this account are hereby advised to ignore all tenement rates and other land related charges by Local Governments in the state.
All Oyo State Government Ministry of Lands, Housing and Urban Development demand notices now come with a unique Payment Code which is all you require to effect online payment, designated POS machines and commercial banks nationwide. Receipts for payment will be automatically generated once payments are made, hence customers will no longer need to visit our office for payment clearance.
