  1. Obtaining of Magistrate Court Form A and B
  2. Payment of the renewal fee of N100, 000 to the Lagos State Ministry of Home Affairs.
  3. Application for the renewal of Lenders license addressed to the permanent secretary of the Ministry of Home Affairs Lagos and submission of all necessary documents including a copy of the previous issued License.
  4. Inspection of the Lender’s office by the officers for the Ministry of Home Affairs.
