DESIGN AND IMPLEMENTATION OF A COMPUTERIZED ESTATE PROPERTY ADMINISTRATION SYSTEM
The purpose of this write up is to design and implement a computerized estate property administration system. Okolo Okolo & Co use as the case study.
This design is purely done in modular and use normalized data structure, which facilitate easy usage and independent working of key field when searching for a particular data. The design also takes care reducing redundancy and mistakes in the file.
It is made to be user friendly and can be used by anybody even without prior knowledge of what it is all about. It is all design and to detect when certain errors are encountered and suggest ways of correcting them, this design is implemented using V Basic programming language, which facilitate easy file maintenance and access in such a way that any information needed about any estate property can easily be gotten. The data used in the design was collected from the landlord agent, company Okolo Okolo & Co. Enugu.
The result from this project reduces the stress of accessing different estate property Okolo Okolo & Co. Enugu.
The problem of office accommodation will be diminished if this design is to be put into proper use. Its going to be a companion to people that need houses to live in and also strangers, even those who are estate property owners in Okolo Okolo & Co Enugu. The design will be more appreciated when used in a fast system.
It will be search in a few second and require an information to remove the stress of accessing estate property administration through manual method.

Estate property renters has been proved to be a difficult task in Enugu due to the unsophisticated antiquated and low skill property management by the estate owners and the agent.
The project discussed in details the modernized and sophisticated method of property management, when one talk of modernized and sophisticated of estate management, computer has to come in enhance 100% result hence the topic of this project design and implementation of a computerized estate property administration system.
Presently, it is indeed a tedious job for one to search for and get an estate property to hire due to the reason mention above.

The project also gives the seeker the opportunity to know where some of the estate property are located, the owners. The specification of the estate and year of construction (how new or old the estate is). Although, the above mentioned method of estate management is encouraged, it has its own limitation (each estate owner is suppose to have a computer terminal and computer accessories with which he will access the main data base). This project considered limitations and come out with a well simplified low cost and less cumbersome approval towards overcoming the limitations that is, one computer one operator, one computer room and a set of computer accessories were used to access all the property, there owners and their status (i.e whether vacant or not), the facilities available the location and everything pertaining the property in Enugu, with this a centralized computer room ought to be establish to do the job above. A property hiring seeker has to visit the centralized computer room and get information about estate property, the landlord and agent has to be feeding the system either through telephone service, network or the equivalent.
But to have a maximum efficiency, networking method of feeding the centralized computer room has been employed. This entails that each landlord will be feeding the centralized computer. When an update is necessary, he uses the terminal which works with the main computer. The centralized computer uses the software to process and access the records in the database.Computerized Estate Property
STATEMENT OF THE PROBLEM
