Such extensions must be requested before the expiration of current occupancy. Unless this provision is complied with, no guarantee can be given to such requests for extension of stay. Approval of request for extension is at the discretion of Management. Lekki Apartments must also be informed of extensions in order that the security deposit can be refunded at the correct time.
