This project considered the management of commercial properties in Nigerian. It also attempted to highlight what is actually called a commercial properties and how it can be managed.

BUSNIKE SHOPPING centre Awka was chosen for the study.

Management problem deserved immediate attention for foresail deterioration and obsolescence. Any delay in tacking a management problem could result in unpleasant consequence. Various issue discussed included the involvement of the management in place and how it effect the productivity of the commercial properties (shopping centre).

The ineffective management which is evident in the poor maintenance of the building and its facilities that effected the productivity of the commercial properties.

Some of the study include the following.

  1. That the management in place effect the productivity of the commercial properties.
  2. That the commercial properties is not effectively managed in Nigeria.
  3. That there is benefit to be derived form management of commercial properties.

In the light of the foregoing, it is necessary to emphasize again that effective property management required that correct diagnosis of defects and corresponding implementation of correct remediate measures.

Therefore to ensure a high standard management of commercial property in particular the recommendation contained in this chapter should be adhered to in order to avoid the problem identified by this study.

5.2 Recommendation

In view of some finding and what has been discussed here in the following suggestion are volunteered for the effective management of commercial properties.

Firstly, there is need for the commercial properties to be managed by a trained profession (estate surveyors and values) so that the purpose for which the property is set out will be achieved.

Secondly, the necessary facilities should be provided at the shopping centre while constant supervision by the management authority should be in place. There should be enough toilet units to supplement the female an the male user respectively. The water supply network should be enhance the issue of the generating set in the shopping centre is of great important. This is in case of power failure from NEPA.

Thirdly, the issue of functional and effective protection system cannot be over emphasized. The commercial properties in question cannot boast of any means of putting of fire out break on its own before the arrival of state fire fighting team, whose efficiency is in doubt the management agent should endeavor to encourage the installation of an effective and functional fire fighting equipment within the commercial properties which can effectively check the out break of fire.

Every property that is put to use experience wear and tear especially commercial property since some of the commercial properties are owner occupied the managing agent should Liaise with owner to budget for repair in the property.

There is also need for proper maintenance of commercial properties. If the proper maintenance is put in place it will attract more customers.

Finally, the suggested solution and decision once put in place will take care of the problem.
