Omar Davies Minister of Transport, Works and Housing, Dr. the Hon. Omar Davies, is assuring persons who have made deposits for housing solutions in the Bernard Lodge scheme, that their money is safe and that the project will go ahead.The Minister explained that the proposed Bernard Lodge Housing scheme was designed as a public/private sector partnership agreement where the Housing Agency of Jamaica (HAJ) would provide land, and funding for the development provided by the private partner.He stated that to date the private sector partners “have not demonstrated the capability of living up to their commitment and their obligation – that of securing financing for the development.”However, the Minister said, “despite the deviation from the originally announced timetable…. the Government of Jamaica (through the HAJ), will honour its obligations in accordance with the sales agreement…the development will be executed. Your deposits are safe, secured in a commercial bank, and can be accounted for at any time”.Dr. Davies, who was making his contribution to the 2014/15 Sectoral Debate in the House of Representatives on May 14, further noted that if a depositor wants full refund, this will be accommodated immediately.The Minister said communication with the depositors would be improved, by way of, but not limited to, meetings, as is necessary.He assured the House that action has been taken, including meetings with representatives of the new HAJ Board, management and other government agencies, to finalise the programme, and move ahead.He also informed that discussions have been held with the National Housing Trust, (NHT) to explore possibilities for collaboration on this, and on other projects.“Based on professional and technical advice presented to me, I have instructed that a more precise and in-depth cost analysis be conducted on what is required for the supporting physical infrastructure, especially sewage disposal and storm drainage, to ensure efficiency and effectiveness, on installation,” Dr. Davies said.He informed that the promised dates of delivery will be delayed in order to complete the required due diligence.“Notwithstanding, deadlines have been set for the supply of requisite information to avoid further delays in moving forward,” the Minister said.center_img Government Moving Ahead With Bernard Lodge Housing Scheme – Dr. Davies Sectoral Debate 2014/2015May 16, 2014Written by: Andrea Braham Story HighlightsMinister of Transport, Works and Housing, Dr. the Hon.

E-conveyancing venture sets price tag

first_imgConveyancers conducting transactions through the Veyo online system due to go live this spring will be charged a flat fee of £20 per transaction, the joint venture behind the project revealed today. Veyo, being developed by a joint venture between the Law Society and IT services firm Mastek UK, will bring together electronically all the processes, checks and documentation prepared and undertaken by solicitors and licensed conveyancers in the sale and purchase of residential properties.The £20 fee will include money laundering searches and conveyancing forms. The joint venture between The Law Society and Mastek (UK) Ltd is to be launched soon, and will bring together electronically, all the processes, checks and documentation prepared and undertaken by solicitors and licensed conveyancers in the sale and purchase of residential properties. There will also be an administration charge of £50 per user per year, Veyo said.  Announcing the price model, Veyo said that the £20 transaction fee equates to 12 minutes spent during an entire transaction, at an average hourly rate. As the online service is expected to save much more time, ‘the £20 transaction fee will be more than self-funding on time savings alone’.As well as time savings, Veyo will enable most of communication between a conveyancing professional and home movers to take place online, cutting postal costs.Stefanie van den Haak, commercial director of Veyo, said the ‘extremely competitive’  fee would ensure Veyo achieves its prime objective of widespread market adoption. ‘It is fundamental to our business strategy that Veyo remains an inclusive product whereby no one will be priced out,’ she said. There are no set up fees, no consultancy fees, no hardware costs and no software maintenance costs, Veyo said. Land Registry figures show that in 2013 there were 1,074,000 residential property transactions in the UK.last_img read more

Gausman receives cortisone shot for shoulder tendinitis

first_imgOn the same day that Matt Wieters resumed throwing, the Orioles have another health concern with just two weeks remaining until Opening Day.Manager Buck Showalter told reporters in Sarasota that starting pitcher Kevin Gausman received a cortisone injection for tendinitis in his right shoulder on Sunday morning. The right-hander had been scheduled to make a minor-league start on Monday, but he won’t pick up a baseball for at least a couple days.“I don’t know if it’s a big concern,” Showalter said. “He’s had some inflammation in there, and we just want to get rid of that. We feel good about it structurally, [but it] hasn’t managed to go away completely. When we have some time here, try and clear it up before we break camp. Hopefully, that’s all it is. See where we are in two or three days.”Gausman spent time on the disabled list last year with a similar issue.With plenty of uncertainty in the starting rotation entering 2016, the Orioles are counting on the 25-year-old to take a major step forward in his first full season as a starter. The 2012 first-round pick pitched to a 4.22 ERA in his 17 starts last season and posted a 3.57 ERA in 20 starts in 2014.In two Grapefruit League starts this spring, Gausman has allowed three earned runs, five hits, one home run, and a walk while striking out six in six innings.Wieters took batting practice once again on Sunday and made 25 throws from up to 60 feet. The veteran catcher hadn’t thrown since leaving a game on March 12 due to right elbow soreness.It remains unclear whether Wieters will be ready for Opening Day, but a magnetic resonance imaging exam last week revealed no structural concerns in his surgically-repaired elbow. He underwent Tommy John surgery 21 months ago.last_img read more
