Shelter represents one of the most basic needs of man and has no doubt a profound impact on the health, welfare and productivity of the individual. Land tenure and administration remain pivotal to any meaningful policy on housing delivery. This paper discusses the problems of housing delivery within the context of land ownership and management in Nigeria. It identifies the various legislative, administrative and policy issues confronting easy delivery of housing stock, particularly to the low income group and the people in the informal sector of the economy. The paper then makes proposal for reform.
