I need to know if the squatters got my parents title by fraud

I therefore visited the property and 2 men were erecting a building on the house. The title has a new name

Good morning. I recently went to tax office to pay some money onto my parents land in Spanish Town Willodene and was informed that other persons name was on the property tax. I therefore visited the property and 2 men were erecting a building on the house. I have a copy of the title which states at the back Substitute Original. Vol xxxx Folio xxx.

I was later informed that a xxxxxxxxx are paying the taxes on my parents land.

The land and erected building at xxxxxxxx Drive, Willodene Spanish Town, Jamaica.

My parents name are xxxxxxxx.

I hope that you can help me as I believe these people have gained the land in a fraudulent manner.

Thanking you in anticipation.
