Management of public residential estate are tools used to analyze financial conditions and performance. Financial analysis means different things to different people. Trade creditors are primarily interested in the liquidity of the firm being analyzed. Their claims are short term and the ability of the firm to pay these can best be judged by an analysis of its liquidity. HISTORY OF MANAGEMENT OF PUBLIC RESIDENTIAL ESTATE IN DIFFERENT COUNTRY  Germany
Germany is also planning to introduce German REITs (short, G-REITs) in order to create a new type of management of public residential estate vehicle. Government fears that failing to introduce REITs in Germany would result in a significant loss of investment capital to other countries. Nonetheless there still is political resistance to these plans, especially by the social democratic party (‘SPD’). As of June 2006 the ministry of finance has
announced that they still plan to introduce G-REITs in 2007. The legal details seem to adopt much of UK-REITs regulations (taxation, public listing, etc.), as far as it is possible to tell yet.
A law concerning G-REITs was enacted 1 June 2007, and is retroactive to 1 January 2007.  Qualification
* REITs will have to be established as a corporation “REIT-AG” or “REIT-Aktiengesellschaft”. * At least 75% of its assets have to be invested in real-estate. * At least 75% of the G-REIT’s gross revenues must be real-estate related. * At least 90% of the REIT’s taxable income has to be distributed to its shareholders through dividends. * The corporation is income-tax-exempt, but the shareholders will have to pay individual income tax on the dividends. * Some restrictions apply on establishing residential REIT’s
REITs have been in existence in Ghana since 1994. The Home Finance Residential property , now HFC BANK, established the first REIT in Ghana in August 1994. HFC Bank has been at the forefront of mortgage financing in Ghana since 1993. It has used various collective investment schemes as well as corporate bonds to finance its mortgage lending activities. Collective Investment Schemes, of which REIT’s are a part, are currently regulated by the Securities and Exchange Commission of Ghana.  Hong Kong
REITs have been in existence in Hong Kong since 2005, when The Link REIT was launched by the Hong Kong Housing Authority on behalf of the Government. Since 2005, there have been 7 REIT listings as at July 2007, most of which, including Sunlight REIT have not enjoyed success due to low yield. Except for The Link and Regal Management of public residential estate Trust, share prices of all but one are significantly below IPO price. Hong Kong issuers’ use of financial engineering (interest rate swaps) to improve initial yields has also been cited as having deterred investors’ interest  India
As of January 2010, India was formulating legislation for REITs in the Indian management of residential estate . Once introduced these Indian REITs (country specific/generic version I-REITs) will help individual investors enjoy the benefits of owning an interest in the securitised management of residential estate . The best benefit being that of fast and easy liquidation of investments in the management of residential estate unlike the traditional way of disposing real estate.
The government and Securities and Exchange Board of India SEBI through various notifications is in the process of easing the norms of investing in residential estate in India directly and indirectly through foreign direct investment, through listed residential estate residential property , mutual funds etc. With the current residential estate boom and the market being flooded with Initial Public Offer of various listed residential estate residential property in India it will be the best time for investors to own a share of the profiting market economy. Legislative framework, revised investment norms, a favourable investment opportunity, and a clear taxation policy will provide the right kind of investing opportunity in India in the time to come.  Japan
Japan is one of a handful of countries in Asia with REIT legislation (other countries/markets include Hong Kong, Singapore, Malaysia, Taiwan and Korea), which permitted their establishment in December 2001. J-REIT securities are traded on the Tokyo Stock Exchange, and most service providers of the J-REITs are Japanese residential estate residential property , Japanese conglomerates and foreign investment banks.
Since the burst of the residential estate bubble in 1990, property prices in Japan have seen steady drops through 2004, with some signs of price stabilization and possibly price increase in 2005 and 2006. Some see J-REITs as a way to increase investment in the management of residential estate , although notable increases in asset values has not yet been realized.
A J-REIT (a listed management of public residential estate trust) is strictly regulated under the Law concerning Investment Trust and Investment
Residential property (the “LITIC”) and established as an investment residential property under the LITIC.
In addition to REITs, Japanese law also provides for a parallel system of special purpose residential property which can be used for the securitization of particular properties on the private placement basis.  Pakistan
The Securities and Exchange Commission of Pakistan is in process of implementing REIT regulatory framework that will allow full foreign ownership, free movement of capital and unrestricted repatriation of profits. It will curb speculation in Pakistani management of residential estate s and gives access to small investors diversifying into residential estate as well. The Securities and Exchange Commission of Pakistan following regulatory framework similar to Singapore and Hong Kong REITs.
The Securities and Exchange Commission of Pakistan expects that about six REITs will be licensed within the first year, mainly large assets management residential property applying for it. Pakistan is recently seeing an outflux of investments by foreign residential estate development mostly Malaysian and Dubai based residential property .  Philippines
REITs in the Philippines will soon be available to the public after the Management of public residential estate Trust of 2009 (RA 9856) lapsed into law on December 17, 2009 and its Implementing Rules and Regulations approved by the Securities and Exchange Commission on May 2010.  Singapore
Commonly referred to as S-REITs. There are currently 20 REITs listed on the SGX, starting with CapitaMall Trust  in July 2002. They represent a range of property sectors including retail, office, industrial, hospitality and residential. S-REITs hold a variety of properties in countries including Japan, China, Indonesia and Hong Kong, in addition to local properties.
S-REITs are regulated as Collective Investment Schemes under the Monetary Authority of Singapore’s Code on Collective Investment Schemes, or alternatively as Business Trusts.
S-REITs benefit from tax advantaged status.
 United Arab Emirates
The REIT legislation was introduced by Dubai International Financial Centre (DIFC) to promote the development of REIT’s in the UAE by passing The Investment Trust Law No.5 that went into effect of August 6, 2006. This restricts all ‘true’ REIT structures to be domiciled within the DIFC. The first REIT license to be issued will be backed by Dubai Islamic Bank with a REIT named ‘Emirates REIT.’ The issue is that DIFC domiciled REIT’s cannot acquire non-Freezone assets within the Emirate of Dubai. The only federally approved Freezone within the UAE is the DIFC itself so therefore we expect to see Emirates REIT focusing all of its attention within this zone. Outside of the zone properties are purchasable by local Gulf (GCC) passport holders only.  United Kingdom
The legislation laying out the rules for REITs in the United Kingdom was enacted in the Finance Act 2006 and came into effect in January 2007 when nine UK property residential property converted to REIT status, including the five that were FTSE 100 members at that time: British Land, Hammerson, Land Securities, Liberty International and Slough Estates (now known as “SEGRO”). The other four were: Brixton, Great Portland Estates, Primary Health Properties and Workspace Group.
British REITs have to distribute 90% of their income. They must be a close-ended investment trust and be UK resident and publicly listed on a stock exchange recognised by the Financial Services Authority.
To support the introduction of REITs in the UK, the REITs and Quoted Property Group was created by several commercial property and financial services residential property . Other key bodies involved are the London Stock Exchange the British Property Federation and Reita. The Reita campaign was launched on 16 August 2006 by the REITs and Quoted Property Group, in order to provide a source of information on REITs, quoted property and related investments funds. Reita’s aim is to raise awareness and understanding of REITs and investment in quoted property residential property . It does this primarily through its portal www.reita.org, providing knowledge, education and tools for financial advisers and investors.
Doug Naismith, managing director of European Personal Investments for Fidelity International, said: “As existing markets expand and REIT like structures are introduced in more countries, we expect to see the overall market grow by some ten percent per annum over the next five years, taking the market to $1 trillion by 2010.”  Nigeria
REITs recently took centre stage in Nigeria when the N50billion Union Homes Hybrid Management of public residential estate Trust was launched in September 2008. In 2007, the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) issued the first set of guidelines for the registration and issuance of requirements for the operation of REITs in Nigeria is detailed in the Investment and Securities Act (ISA).

With the collapse of the bubble in the capital market, institutional and foreign investors pulled out of the market leading to a crash in asset values. The severity of the crisis was also increased by the exposure of deposit money banks to the capital market due to a large number of unregulated margin loan facilities extended to clients. This and the lingering effect of oil price bubble in 2009 accounted mainly for the near extinct of credit in the nation’s financial market.
To address the problem of poor infrastructure, a new gas policy has been approved which will ensure the direct allocation of gas, LPFO and PMS to manufacturers. In addition, several other initiatives are being spearheaded by the Government to address the power situation, including dedicating power to industrial clusters. Work is also underway to improve the business climate, including shortening the time for goods clearance at the ports, eventually to no more than 48 hours. The review of the import prohibition list and tariffs are also ongoing. These initiatives are targeted at improving the competitiveness of Nigerian businesses and strengthening the business climate.
In addition to the initiatives outlined above which will have a direct positive impact on growth, productivity and the creation of new jobs, several enterprise development programmes which are focused on the more labour intensive sectors of the economy are currently being developed. Government’s focus is on inclusive growth with job creation and with these and other initiatives to refocus the economy; we expect to see positive results in the medium to long-term.
In 2011, I will expect that residential estate will do better than what we
saw in 2010 significantly as we start to feel the effect of AMCON’s operations and especially after April 29. The 3 tiers of the market are expected to pick up but at different times within the year with the high-end as the last to pick up.

1.6SCOPE AND LIMITATION OF STUDY
The research work will concern or effect only profit making organization. Public corporation are not treated in the study. Time and finance were equally limiting factors of this study finally restricted access o secondary information sources was also restricted in the study.
1.7LIMITATIONS OF THE STUDY
One major set back in the research work time there was not enough time to give this work the thorough research it deserves.
Limitation in question was also problem since respondents truthfulness in answering question was not adequately guaranteed.
Therefore, the work was limited to the answerers gotten from the respondents. Frequently rescheduling to the top level managers and then unwilliness, when interview to disclose some vital information they considered confidential to the researcher on the strategic planning methods used by the organization.
Scarcity of books, journals and write ups with enough diverse view or planning contributes yet another limitation and set back to this research work.
The least but most important was financial constraints. The cost transportation to P.H where case study firm is located and foods spent in gathering data were very high.
“Housing is a bundle of joy” (Agbola, 2003). Housing is a house, a structure or an enclosure used for habitation by people, which generally has walls, openings and a roof to shelter its enclosed space from inclement weather, that is, precipitation, wind and heat (hotness or coldness). Housing is the combination of residential, commercial and industrial buildings, agricultural land, transportation, health, education, recreation, parks, services centres (water and electricity), waste management centres, cemeteries, markets, religious centres etc in a ratio that will sustain the development of an area.
Amongst the objectives of residential estate are status boosting of the owner, income-generation, capital appreciation, provision of comfort against inclement weather, and provision of resting, working or playing place. Residential estate has been recognised to be the bedrock of socio-economic development of an individual, organisation and nation.
It can also be for political development of a nation. Churchill (1941) said that ‘we mould our buildings and thereafter our buildings shape us’. Human beings are products of the environment they came from. Nigerian economic, education, health, agricultural, manufacturing and pharmaceutical sectors have suffered setbacks because of inadequate housing. Demographically, all divisions of Nigerians by age have suffered inadequate housing. There are no parks for the old, recreational grounds for the youths and infrastructure to compliment the already decayed housing stock in Nigeria.
Many writers have written about the inadequacy of housing stock in Nigeria (Cohen, 1986; Onibokun, 1990; Nubi, 2002; Agbola and Olatubara, 2003; Oyedele 2006). Adequate housing can be defined as housing sufficient in infrastructure like affordable shelter, roads, drainages, sewage system, pipe borne water, street lighting, recreation grounds, parks, function halls, markets, schools, health centres, social services like post offices,
security posts etc. Affordable housing can also be seen as a combination of quality and quantity of housing in an area which reflects the social and economic status of the people living in the area.
The government cannot do it alone, despite the fact that housing can be seen as economic and social good. The economic benefits of housing and the housing benefits are intertwined and complimentary. Without adequate housing, there cannot be healthy workforce to offer better service and better products and without good purchasing power, the agricultural sector will be down. Adequate food means good health. Health is wealth. Unhealthy citizens generally should be a concern for a responsible government. This is why responsible governments do not leave the issue of housing provision in the hands of novice.
2.2MEANING OF MANAGEMENT OF PUBLIC RESIDENTIAL ESTATE
A Management of public residential estate Trust or REIT (pronounced rit) is a tax designation for corporations investing in real estate. It is tax-efficient as it reduces or eliminates the participating corporations’ corporate income taxes. REITs are required to distribute 90% of their income, which may be taxable in the hands of the investors if invested in other businesses. The REIT is a system designed to provide a similar structure for investment in residential estate as mutual funds provide for investment in stocks.Like other financial instuments, REITs can be publicly or privately held as investment. Public REITs may be listed on public stock exchanges like shares of common stock in other firms. REIT is a machinery that can spurn the development of adequate and avoidable housing growth in Nigeria.
REITs are organisations that own and manage investment properties and issue shares to potential investors to finance their operations. REITs do not pay corporation tax on the condition that they distribute 90 per cent of their income to shareholders. There are three classes of REITs, which are equity, mortgage or hybrid. Equity REIT is cash-backed, mortage REIT is real estate- backed, while hybrid REIT is a combination of the two.
The principal features of REIT are its Net Asset Value (NAV), Adjusted Funds From Operations (AFFO) and Cash Available for Distribution (CAD).
2.3CHALLENGES OF MANAGEMENT OF PUBLIC RESIDENTIAL ESTATE
Study and evaluate the value of the property, its location, neighbourhood, use, encumbrances, physical state and any incidental cost pursuant to its acquisition. Carry out a feasibility study, viability, encumbrances and any cost incidental to its acquisition. An EIA (Environmental Impact Assessment) report may also be required for some residential estate developments. A very important step to consider is the engagement of consultants. Residential estate professional advisors are required almost at every stage for sound advice. All interests, titles, ownership, registration and documentation must be easily verifiable.
Management of public residential estate also has its pitfalls. The investor must be cautious about the following;
(i.) Do not be carried away with the physical state, aesthetics or location of a property without considering its investment potentials and viability. A beautiful structure may on closer look and study sometimes be defective structurally.
(ii.) The temptation or thought of reaping hyper profits or quick returns on investment should be avoided. It may have an unclear title or incomplete documentation or encumbered by litigation or ownership tussle.
(iii.) Power of negotiation is important, if the investor does not have a residential estate qualification or background, a professional Estate Surveyor or Appraiser should be engaged at a fee. This goes along way to secure his investment and help avoid huge loss due to faulty or hasty decisions.
Some of the best investment tips for the residential estate and property investor though with caution are given below;
Offers from relocating sellers.
Bank sales and foreclosures arising from property used as security for mortgage and loans. Fresh allocations from governments’ housing schemes.
Financial distress or difficulties due to failed businesses, loss of employment, downturn in seller’s economy (meltdown), protracted illness, accidents, natural disasters, etc. Joint owners or divorced couples willing to sell in a hurry.
High capital outlay, not withstanding, residential estate is a sure and secure investment and values appreciates with time. Though there is risk in every investment, residential estate is not an exception. If the investment steps are carefully considered and decisions wisely taken, the investors streams of income are sure of continually being reaped.

You can even buy foreclosure properties because this is considered to be one of the bets choices for investing. But before you do this make sure that you have done a proper research and you know well about the foreclosure market so that it is easy for you to get what you are expecting. Whatever steps you are taking make sure that you are well informed about it. The Problem With Residential estate as an Investment
by MD on February 25, 2010
We’ve all heard the old adage of– “rent is simply paying off a mortgage for someone else.” or– “if you want to make some good money, buy some real estate, throw some tenants in there, and collect the rent.”
Well I’ve learned and researched a lot about residential estate over the last few years. I’ve found out that it’s possible to make a decent passive income from residential estate investments. On the flip side, there’s also a dark side to residential estate investing.
What is the problem with using residential estate as a passive income investment? Expensive fees.
Mortgage fees, maintenance fees, property taxes, local taxes, rental insurance, and lack of tenant down periods. I could give you a whole list of fees and really depress you, but I don’t want to do that. Instead I just wanted any potential residential estate investors to consider all of the costs instead of only looking at the monthly cash flow that comes from tenants. There is way more fees involved than a simple rent collection at the end of the month. Collecting rent.
Sure showing up at the end of every month to collect your cash flow sounds easy, and even somewhat fun. I have to share the bad news with you that there have been many horror stories in regards to collecting rent. You can potentially experience tenants that want to avoid paying, tenants with a sad story every month, or tenants that flat out don’t pay their rent.
Okay I know a little hassle here and there isn’t so bad. Maybe I should stop being such a cry baby, right?
The thing is that the capital you invest in residential estate can be invested in other areas that are more hassle-free and less hands on. Tenants screwing you over.
Where I live there is a law where you can NOT evict a tenant between the months of October and March. What does this mean? Well it means that you’re stuck with a tenant living in your property that is not either not paying their rent on time or at all.
What if a tenant damages your property? You’ll have to take them to court. This is time taken away from your already busy schedule. You also run the risk of not winning the case or not getting the full value of the damages done.
There’s also the chance that you’re tenant just leaves the property due to a medical issue or goes out of the country (I know there should be a clause in your contract, but it’s going to be difficult to chase someone in a different country). You will be stuck without a cash flow for an undetermined period of time. Can you live without this cash flow? How will you cover the mortgage payments?
That’s all for me…What problems do you see with residential estate as an investment?
Aside: Good thing for Passive Income Now and blogging, because without this I would have nowhere else to write about my infatuation for real estate.
2.4MANAGEMENT OF PUBLIC RESIDENTIAL ESTATE IN OTHER COUNTRIES
Australia: The REIT concept was launched in Australia in 1971. The first Listed Property Trust (LPT) on the Australian stock exchanges was General Property Trust was the first Listed Property Trust (LPT). All the stock exchanges in Australia were merged in 1987 to form the Australian Stock Exchange – ASX. REITs which are listed on an exchange are known as Listed Property Trusts (LPTs), distinguishing them from private REITs which are known in Australia as Unlisted Property Trusts.
More than 60 LPTs are listed on the ASX, with market capitalisation in excess of A$100bn.
Australia is now reputed as having the world’s largest REITs market outside the United States with more than 10 per cent of global listed property trusts found on the ASX.

Canada: Canadian REITs were established in 1993. They are required to be configured as trusts and are not taxed if they distribute their net taxable income to shareholders. REITs have been excluded from the income trust tax legislation proposed in the 2007 budget by the Conservative government. Many Canadian REITs have limited liability.
Germany: Germany has also introduced German REITs (short, G-REITs) in order to create a new type of management of public residential estate engine. Government fears that failing to introduce REITs in Germany would result in a significant loss of investment capital to other countries. Nonetheless there is still political resistance to these plans, especially by the Social Democratic Party (SDA). In June 2006 the Ministry of Finance has announced

The corporatio is income-tax-exempt, but the shareholders will have to pay individual income tax on the dividends.
Hong Kong: REITs have been in existence in Hong Kong since 2005, when The Link REIT was launched by the Hong Kong Housing Authority on behalf of the Government. Since 2005, there have been 7 REIT listings as at July 2007, most of which, including Sunlight REIT have not enjoyed success due to low yield.

A J-REIT may be structured as an independent corporation or as a contractual relationship through a trust bank.

United States: In the U.S., REITs generally pay little or no federal income tax, but are subject to a number of special requirements set forth in the Internal Revenue Code, one of which is the requirement to annually distribute at least 90% of their taxable income in the form of dividends to shareholders.
In order to qualify for the corporate income tax advantages of REIT in U.S., a REIT must: be structured as corporation, trust, or association; being managed by a board of directors or trustees, have transferable shares or transferable certificates of interest, otherwise be taxable as a domestic corporation; not to be a financial institution or an insurance residential property ; be jointly owned by 100 persons or more; have 95 per cent of its income derived from dividends, interest, and property income; pay dividends of at least 90% of the REIT’s taxable income; not more than 50% of the shares can be held by five or fewer individuals during the last half of each taxable year (5/50 rule); at least 75% of total investment assets must be in real estate; derive at least 75% of gross income from rents or mortgage interest; and no more than 20% of its assets may consist of stocks in taxable REIT subsidiaries.
2.5HOW MANAGEMENT OF PUBLIC RESIDENTIAL ESTATE OPERATES
Nowadays, numerous REITs are investment-oriented and distribute all of or even more than their current earnings, often resulting in dividend yields comparable to bond yields. If an investment residential property such as a REIT distributes more than its taxable income, the excess distribution is considered “return of capital” for tax purposes (not taxed as ordinary income, but first reduces basis in REIT stock; if this brings the basis to zero, then remaining amount of the return on capital is taxed at capital gain rates).
The distribution requirement may hamper a REIT’s ability to retain earnings and generate growth from internal resources. This and other restrictions imposed by the Internal Revenue Code generally limit a REIT’s suitability for growth-oriented investors. However, other considerations may result in potential for stock price appreciation, such as improvements in the REIT’s underlying leasing markets, changes in interest rates, or increasing demand for REIT stocks.
There are over 200 publicly quoted REITs operating in the United States Securities Exchange Commission. Their assets included a combined $500 billion, and approximately two-thirds of them were trading on national stock exchanges. The number of REITs not registered with the Securities Exchange Commission and not publicly traded is about 800 (Rotschild, 2005).
2.7CLIENT PROBLEMS IN TRUSTY ESTATE MANAGEMENT
The property business is one of the most capable businesses of the reveal times and hence there are many investors who want to expend the services of trusty estate management residential property to manage their properties, increase their values and salvage them spacious returns once they resolve to sell them. Even otherwise these days, the owner of a property does not have the time to be keen in the issues of his property very deeply.
Moreover, he may be lacking the distinguished skills also. But at the same time there is an increase in the number of people who want to hire or engage a property and the owner needs to acquire his property in enormous shape and hire out or sell the property at the maximum profit possible. A professional who mainly is interested in managing different properties is surely an respond to all these issues.

Apart from these typical services these specialized residential property also offer other services specific to the residential property and the client. The residential property provide services to both commercial and residential property holders. But this is unprejudiced an ideal state. It is not that every residential property offers trustworthy and committed services. The owner of a property should form some shimmering searches in locating a firm offering genuine quality assets management at a reasonable rate.
The trusty estate management residential property should be assessed by the owner of the property via personal interviews. Many times these residential property work well during the initial stages of their business agreements but afterwards they do not provide very efficient services.
