Land title documents are often created following the sale, mortgage, assent or gifting of a parcel of land or property. When such transactions occur and these land title documents are made, they should be registered at the Land Registry in the Registrar General’s Department at the Ministry of the Attorney General and Legal Affairs.
We've seen this happen many a time in Trinidad and Tobago. But when exactly can a person who "squats" get legitimate title to land in Trinidad and Tobago?
When two or more persons own property together they hold the property as either:
joint tenants OR as tenants in common.
You've probably heard these terms before but what do they actually mean? Knowing the meaning of these terms can help you to decide how you want to hold property with other persons - possibly the property you own with your spouse, business partner, relative or friend.
