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 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.
* 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
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 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.
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 .
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.
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.”
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).

1.4 STATEMENT OF PROBLEM
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.

1.6 SCOPE 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.
1.7 LIMITATIONS 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.
