RESPONSE:Dearest Simone Calnick,
Thanks for writing in. At this point in time we do need more information to be able to assist you better. However, provided everything is in order the process for removing your deceased father’s name so that the title bears your mother’s name only should take three months at most. Perhaps you should try connecting a lawyer who is based in Jamaica, and one who specialises in land issues.
If you need further assistance from our team, please write directly to
