THOSE WHO HAVE paid the minimum deposit of ten per cent of their mortgage for houses at Lancaster, St James, can move in within a few days.
This is the word from Minister of Housing, Lands and Rural Development Denis Kellman, who said that Government would make sure the houses at Lancaster Phase 1, in particular, were finally occupied as soon as possible, even by those without completed mortgages.
“There are people who have paid the ten per cent [down payment], so they’re free to move in, and there might be some who have completed their 100 per cent transactions [but] we have opened the options so that you can have accessibility and people can have possession of their properties,” he told the MIDWEEK NATION after Sunday night’s branch meeting at his constituency office in Pie Corner, St Lucy.
Kellman said Phases 1 and 2 were fully allocated and that once some remedial work was completed by the end of this week, the first phase would be ready for occupation “a couple of days” afterwards, based on information given to him by management of the National Housing Corporation (NHC).
