Re: Looking for land for sale in Antigua or barbuda

Land ownership on Barbuda is controversial:

Plans to rebuild hurricane-ravaged Barbuda reignite a decades-old land dispute

Here's an excerpt:

The need to rebuild hurricane-ravaged Barbuda has reignited a decades-old dispute over who, if anyone, owns the land.

Most Barbudans say it belongs to the people under a historical tenure system that has allowed anybody of Barbudan descent to use a plot for free. But in the wake of Hurricane Irma, the government has renewed efforts to institute a system of formal individual ownership it says is necessary to get loans for reconstruction.
