ANSWER: by June Anderson (Jamaican Realtor), June 2017
There is no obstacle for your buying a house in Jamaica for someone else. That person would require a TRN (Tax Registration Number), similar to your social security number.
Whoever goes on the title has to have this.
As to where to start; that would depend on your price range, the area you want and the financing.
If this is not a cash deal, but you're financing, you will probably need a TRN too.
