QUESTION about: Buying land in Jamaica for RV (Recreational Vehicle) living

I am thinking about buying land there but with a twist. I want to have my RV shipped there and put on the land. I would just need to have electrical and sewage done. Is this something viable


ANSWER: by Lisa Campbell (Real Estate Attorney), March 2017

Hi Jill Gauthier,
I must say this is the first I have had such a question - thanks much!

Generally speaking, in order to build or place any kind of structure on land in Jamaica it usually necessary to seek planning/building permission from the local authority/municipal council.

In Jamaica these are done according to parish.

So for example if you wish to get permission to build in the parish of Westmoreland then you would need to make an application to the municipal council for that parish.

Further you may also require a permit from the National and Environmental Planning Agency (NEPA) which had oversight for environmental issues.

If the property on which you wish to locate RV already has electricity connections then what would be required is interfacing with the Jamaica Public Service (company responsible for electricity in Jamaica) to determine how to interconnect.

They will guide you and you can retain the services of a certified electrician to carry out the work after which an inspection will be done.

With respect to water and sewage contact would be made with the National Water Commission (NWC) who would guide you as to the process and thereafter you would retain the service of a plumber to make the necessary connections.

Please in the scenario contemplated as far as it relates to JPS and NWC I am assuming that service connection already exist at property.

Lastly, I would also advise that you speak with a Customs Broker to determine the requirements to bring in the RV and so you can secure relevant permit/s and wee as be advised of custom duty regime!!

Happy RVING!!!*:) happy
