Before Buying Land in a Subdivision Scheme, What Should I Do?

Before committing to the purchase of land in a subdivision scheme, it's crucial to undertake due diligence to ensure that the transaction proceeds smoothly and that your interests are protected. Jamaica Homes is here to provide valuable guidance on the steps you should take before entering into a contract and making any payments for the land.

Engage an Attorney-at-Law:

First and foremost, it's advisable to engage the services of a qualified attorney-at-law to review any Agreement for Sale prepared by the vendor. Your attorney will ensure that the terms of the agreement are fair and favorable to you as the purchaser and will provide legal guidance throughout the transaction process.

Key Steps to Take:

  1. Verify Approval from Municipal Corporation: Before proceeding with the purchase, ascertain whether approval has been granted by the relevant Municipal Corporation for the subdivision of the land. This approval is essential to ensure that the subdivision scheme complies with local regulations and zoning laws.

  2. Obtain a Surveyor's Identification Report: Obtain a Surveyor's Identification Report on the land to verify that the boundaries described in the Registered Title align with the physical boundaries on the ground. Additionally, the report should highlight any potential breaches of restrictive covenants that may affect the use or development of the land.

  3. Obtain a Valuation Report: It's prudent to obtain a Valuation Report from a professional land appraiser to assess whether the purchase price of the land reflects its true market value. This report will provide valuable insights into the financial aspects of the transaction and help you make an informed decision.
