Land titles for Government-led housing programs to be expedited

Posted: Thursday, May 17, 2018. 9:17 a.m. CST.

By BBN Staff: Today, Belize’s Commissioner of Lands issued a statement informing that to clear the backlog of applications, the Ministry of Natural Resources will now expedite applications for people who fit the following criteria:

1.      An application is for land on which a house has been built through a Government Housing Project AND

2.      The loan through which the house was built has already been fully repaid or forgiven by the Government of Belize, AND

3.      The land on which the house is built is confirmed to be National Land.

Applicants will now be able to apply to purchase their land directly, providing that they supply all the documentation necessary to support that the property under the Housing Project has been fully paid.

In instances where persons have applied for leases and are awaiting the completion of the process, they are invited to visit the Office of the Commissioner of Lands and Surveys to organize and complete their applications or to apply for purchase.

This initiative will be implemented immediately.
