Having 5-10 acres doesn't get u an FUL. Takes a lot more than jus a deed. Gotta prove the land is yours, that its agri estate, why you need it, among other things.


&even after all dat still wait bout 10 years to get it in hand

the 'lubrication' is the key factor in how smoothly and swiftly your transaction goes.... citizens, unless willing to shell out a lot of cash, are quite at a disadvantage in self protection in this country

Most ppl apply sor a license to keep a shotgun. Now you could use it for home defense, but after that is you at risk of
A-losing it by other bandits who now kno for a fact you have it at home after you blast the first one
B-losing it for a while during the ensuing investigation, during which bandidos will figure out you at least for a little while defenseless and then move in knowing u can't fight back
C-get fed up of the big long heavy obzokee shotgun and the limits of its usage. Yuh could only buy x amount of shells per year, only certain types of ammunition readily available locally, it conspicuous, loud, not easy to come up fast on a close intruder, etc.
For estate+home defense uses, a bullpup .22lr semi/full auto would work just as well if not better.

Anyway, back to the topic at hand

so u want to buy a property from a scamp then.
House can only be valued by a local valuation company, & will be valued in TT$. If taking a mortgage, afaik no bank would even consider this as an option. Property is valued in TT, & will be paid for in TT.

Simply because the seller could hold onto the USD & sell it when the rate goes up & make more than the value of the property in the transaction. Very dishonest & sprangerish way to deal wth big ppl.

more than a few ppl ive heard of offering USD cash...

But the offering usually iza steep discount 2 the sellers asking price...even figuring in the depreciating TT$...

2 counter u could raise ur offer in TT$...but thiz may not be feasible given the overheated market.

Greed has overtaken fear.

Even if you take it upon yourself to do a valuation of the property, they will more than likely use the asking price from the seller..."market price" valuation.

If was me, he would hadda take the TT & go & buy his own USD/GBP/CAD/EC afterwards or keep it & find another buyer
you hadda be a madman to feel yuh could value & sell a house in USD that built, being sold, & being financed in T&T. It have international financial standards banks have to follow that would make this at the very least a very suspicious transaction. Here, look a rough example.

Seller gets USD 100K @ 6.7516:1 for the property valued at TT$675160.00 on the afternoon of the 1/1/16. By 1 am on the morning of 2/1/16 the exchange rate is 6.7742:1. Thats a difference of USD 0.03c/USD paid to him. 0.03x100000 is 3000, so essentially yuh paid USD 3000.00 more for a house when the value of said house never budged. Now multiply that by the new rate yuh get TT$20, 322.60, & that is what extra you paid for a property that did not appreciate in value commensurately.

So instead of paying TT$675160.00 for a house thats valued same, yuh wind up paying roughlyTT$695482.60


Honestly, I'd tell only pay for it in TT$, at most I might make arrangements to help him to get the USD afterwards, but I eh fallin prey to dem kinda hustlers ambition chupidness

On an island expansion of the money supply will always keep real estate prices strong.

MS is expanding but the amount of land is not

Also, important to know who actually owns the land. Just because you paid money and got a copy of the deed, does not mean you are the legal owner.
