If you're British, don't buy property in Cyprus. You aren't welcome until you get rid of your military from our island.
Don't buy here wait until Cyprus goes to the wall then you'll only be too welcome. Cyps change with the weather dude
One of the people featured in this programme called me earlier today to say that he'd finally got his Title Deeds. He bought the property in 2001 – it's only taken 15 YEARS!!
Sine the time the TV programme was made his developer's outstanding debts had risen to over €1 million and the company had gone into receivership – the developer has subsequently died.
Cyprus introduced a new law last year (thanks to the EU) enabling those unable to get their deeds to apply for them. More information about this change, application forms, etc. at http://www.news.cyprus-property-buyers.com/2016/05/17/applying-title-deeds/id=00126681
My two bobs worth on the subject – not only Brits have been ripped off but Greek Cypriots themselves have been cheated. I'm a Cypriot/Aussie speaking from experience – disgusted and pissed off, to top it all off – we also lost our properties to the Turkish invasion – trust no one!!
The lawyer that Andrew Winter interviewed (Rikos Erotokritou) has been sentenced to 3.5 year in prison for six counts of bribery of a public official, corruption, conspiracy to subvert the course of justice, conspiracy to defraud, and abuse of power.
people who buy land in the republic of Cyprus deserve better. however I've no sympathy for those who buy in the occupied area of north Cyprus as they are purchasing from those who have no title to the land which was occupied after the Turkish invasion of 74 and some was what was owned by Greek Cypriots who fled from the oncoming Turkish army or were ethnically cleansed from the north to resettle in the south of the island.
I am not surprised by Cypriot developers doing this at all 😅
In the Uk there is no need to check the property via an independent lawyer/expert? Bad habits = bad results.
