NOTE – in its guide to buying a property in Cyprus, A Place in the Sun Live issues the following advice:

Buyer beware

There are two main issues in Cyprus, both involving title. The first relates to the ownership of properties in northern Cyprus – held by Turkey since 1974. Prices are cheaper there, but the former Greek Cypriot owners still claim much of the property and any purchase there is risky – whatever agents tell you.

The second issue is with the slow issuance of title deeds in southern Cyprus, combined with some dubious dealings by developers there in recent years, which makes proving clean title essential. Although the authorities have made steps to expedite the whole process, the situation has historically been that it has taken years for owners to get their title deeds following purchases or new building. So some buyers are, rightly, very reluctant to buy without them.

    This warning is really not good enough and should highlight why deeds are not issued in many cases-

    Unpaid/unserviced developer mortgages on “sold” properties potentially leaving the new “buyer” responsible for same.

    Planning and building regulation infringements by developers which the new “buyer” will ultimately be responsible for resolving at their own expense.

    And lets not mention the lawyers and their trade union, The CBA.

    At last these Place in the Sun people are now finally getting the message, regarding the Cyprus Title Deeds scandals.

    To Conor and the Team, keep hammering this message home at this exhibition. RB.
