We frequently have issues with Tenants when registering a new lease or renewing leases, where the Tenant is unable to locate the Certificate of Title, please see below the importance of a your Certificate of Title:
Tenants are reminded that their Certificate of Title is akin to a Deed. Certificates of Title are issued where the area is governed or covered under the Real Property Act. We have two types of Land systems in Trinidad: Lands which fall under Old Law (in which is Deed is used as proof of title) and Lands which fall under the Real Property Act in which a Certificate of Title is issued. Tenants should keep this Certificate of Title in a safe place and should be able to produce same if they are inter alia, entering into a mortgage, an assignment of the Property and a renewal or new lease arrangement.
