FCTA Gives One Month Extension For Payment Of Ground Rents Arrears, Sundry Bills
The FCT Administration has approved the extension of the period for payment of arrears of ground rents and sundry bills to August 9, 2018.
This is to afford property owners in the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) that have not cleared them to effect payment.
The FCT Director of the Abuja Geographic Information Systems (AGIS), Dr Isa Jalo said this while inspecting some facilities of the AGIS Customer Service on Monday in Abuja.
According to him, this is a sequel to the expiration of the deadline given earlier.
The director warned that all plot allottees, property owners as well as beneficiaries of the sale of Federal Government houses in Abuja should take advantage of the window provided by the Administration.
Jalo reiterated that the settlement of these outstanding ground rents and sundry bills latest August 9, 2018 would save the affected persons the embarrassment that may come out of their inaction.
He emphasized that all concerned allottees and beneficiaries who fail to clear their bills within the grace period will have themselves to blame.
“Failure to clear these outstanding ground rents and sundry bills will attract all necessary penalties for default, which may include the revocation of such titles as stipulated in the extant laws,” he said.
The director advised that every property owner should be responsive, as the government needs these payments to provide infrastructure, social amenities and other services to the citizenry. (NAN)
