UPP says its ‘Buyer Assist Programme’ will unblock path to home ownership with rent-to-own and grant options


REAL NEWS: A “Buyer Assist Programme” will be one of the initiatives launched by the United Progressive Party (UPP) Party once it takes office, and will assist residents to become homeowners, promises Harold Lovell, the Political Leader.

Lovell says the UPP is considering several pathways to home-ownership, including the rent-to-own option. A second option will cater specifically to aspiring home-owners and will be tailored to suit their unique circumstances and needs.

He notes that a major problem encountered by many residents – especially young people – is coming up with the deposit or down-payment, making it virtually impossible for them to get a mortgage.

However, the Political Leader says the Buyer Assist Programme will address this challenge by offering grants.

This is another novel and sensible UPP initiative intended to help people improve their living standards, Lovell says.

Meanwhile, Alister Thomas, the UPP Candidate for St. John’s City West, says this initiative would have been in place already – had the Party not been voted out of office.

He refers to the Bau Panel venture, which, he notes, was halted by the Gaston Browne Administration although hundreds of people had been approved for first-time home ownership.

  1. sounds like a great initiative!!

    Also why does it take so damn long to do a land transfer 🤦🏾‍♂️

  2. Sounds more than reasonable PM Lovell.

    To hell with Gaston…. telling us we can’t get any real relief, while burning $100,000 to $150,000 in overspending on EVERY National Housing home. That’s at least $100 – $150 MILLION of the people’s money flushed down each of the $4,000 Clarevue toilets, based on their claim of 1000 homes.

    To hell with ABLP and their squandermania, while WE SUFFER!

    Cut the waste and corruption out, give National Housing workers a raise, and deliver a more affordable product to all who seek low cost housing.

    UPP and PM Harold Lovell will see that it is done.
