Haiti Land Transaction manual

The Haiti Land Transaction Manual, Vol. 1 documents how to buy and sell land in Haiti.

The manual was the result of a year’s collaboration between Habitat for Humanity International, Architecture for Humanity, local legal experts, and the Haitian government. 

It is an accessible manual that Haitians, NGOs and international investors can use to navigate the complex bureaucratic legal system and secure property − a critical first step to permanent reconstruction.
