Most Jamaicans who go to court for recovering their houses, office space from occupants usually wind up at the Parish Courts islandwide. This is because claims below a certain amount are heard there. Up to 2016, this amount is One Million Dollars.
Although in a number of instances where the house is valued for up to Two Million Dollars the claim is heard by the Parish Judge unless there is a challenge such as objection voiced by the Defendant. Then it is up to the Parish Judge to decide if the claim for recovery should be forwarded to the Supreme Court.
