Hey guys,

Don't know if this is a repost, but to anyone interested in obtaining approvals from a Borough or regional corporation, the following link will prove useful:

Having the planned size of the house would help with a more accurate estimation, because it could have 25x30 house and it could have 40x50 house, if you get my drift. I looking at doing a 40x47 house, but I leaving the downstairs open for now, which will allow me to complete the house within the budget and with whatever leftover then I could see about the downstairs

Building a house in Trinidad

Postby eitech » November 25th, 2017, 9:28 am

Good day fellas. I am in the process of purchasing a house. I was reading through the owner’s deed when i noticed the house number is stated as “no. 4”. All other documents related to the house has it has “no. 5”. How does the owner go about getting this changed or is this not an issue?

Look on the cadastral and see if the lot on it is the same lot . Check the wardens office or corporation and make sure the lot is the same one on the assessment roll/ register . It can be corrected , just make sure you buying the correct one before you make the deed ,so you won't have problems after.

On the deed there is a copy of a land and building tax receipt that says “#5”. I am not sure why the owners didn’t initially change it. I now learning these property terms. I will just ask them to make the change before i proceed. At the warden office they will check that for you and how?

Each property has an assessment number on the assessment roll and the owners name. When the property is sold ,you fill out a form ( return) which changes the owner ,but the number remains the same. So the wardens office can tell you who is the owner and also identify the property .

Yea
Anybody can acess it once you know the assessment number or the owner's name
However, changes can only be made by the owner or if an attorney fill out the return form

Ok. I am actually lookin at the deed now and on the land and building tax receipt i am seeing an assessment number and the transaction took place at a BIR office. I will jus visit them and enquire. Maybe the no. 4 was just a typo.

They may allow you to change it if you have proof of a problem
Or they may ask you to send the owner to come in.

Just installed interlocking concrete pavers and the installer used regular sand to fill between the joints prior to compacting. Was told by another builder that I should have used Polymeric sand as the other sand would wash away in time.

Where can I get this locally and is it really needed to lock the surface area.

Looks like a structural crack.

Highest points of stress occurs at corners with sharp edges, for example, at corners of door and window frames. That is why cracks usually start from those areas.

Do you have a lintel beam above that door frame? It doesn't look so based on where the crack passes.

The repair method for the crack would depend on what type of blocks you have and whether the cores are infilled with concrete or were left hollow.

Use $225.00 per linear metre (VAT exclusive) for a 1.83m high chain link fence constructed using 9 gauge chain link fence fabric and 9 gauge strain wire. No ground beam included in this cost.
