The purpose of this course is to explain and de-mystify Real Property transactions in Trinidad and Tobago. The purchase of Real Property is usually the biggest investment a person would undertake in their lifetime.
Naturally, persons would be apprehensive when it comes to parting with their life’s savings towards the purchase of a structure that will become their home. The average individual is quite confused by the seemingly complex web of legal jargon, documents, time-lines, rules and requirements in relation to purchase of property. It is therefore easy for someone to feel lost, frustrated and intimidated during the transaction.
This course is designed to relieve some of the fear and anxiety of prospective buyers, as well as provide valuable information to prospective vendors as they embark upon the sale of real property. This course will also increase the participant’s level of fraud awareness in property sales, so they will not be a victim of unscrupulous persons.
This course targets the following persons:

This course is based on Real Property Law as taught to law students and has sufficient opportunities to apply legal principles to real-life scenarios.
