Abstract

The resident is the basic necessity to a better health delivery system not the clinic (WHO,1999). Simply, only 25% to 30% Nigerians, typically highest government executives plus wealthy and privileged people enjoy a decent resident (Azzan et al 2005). Objectives of this article are: to investigate the contemporary practices of the urban residential property market in Bauchi, Nigeria; to examine the activities of the urban informal sector in the urban residential property market in Bauchi, Nigeria; and to assess the consequences of the activities of the urban informal sector in the urban residential property market in Bauchi, Nigeria. Review of relevant literatures ascertained that irregular settlements have become so prevalent that seem to out number the legitimately planned developments in the residential property markets in Bauchi, Nigeria (Chirisa, 2008). Their validity appears to be no longer in question. The weaknesses of govenrment planning controls and the disorganized developments connected with the informal sector have created confused and unhealthy urban environments (Azzan et al 2005). Conclusively, residential units contrusted informally collapses regularly, claim innocent lives and waste wealth (Chirisa, 2008). Urban informal sector developments, especially those for residential purposes pose real deathtraps for urban community chiefly for the urban meager who cannot afford the high cost of medication (Gerber, 2007).
