Questions re-tabled in House of Lords

On 14 November we reported that Lord Jones of Cheltenham had tabled two written questions in the House of Lords concerning the many problems being experienced by British citizens who have bought property in Cyprus; both questions were due for an answer by 27 November.

However, as HMG has yet to reply to those questions, Lord Jones re-tabled them on 10th December; both questions are due for an answer by 24 December.

  • To ask Her Majesty’s Government what advice they are offering to United Kingdom citizens who have bought property in Cyprus but have not received their title deeds.
  • To ask Her Majesty’s Government whether they will make representations to the government of Cyprus over the practice of allowing developers to use title deeds of completed houses as collateral for future loans, with reference to Article 23 of the Constitution of the Republic of Cyprus.

These questions, which require a written answer, will be passed to the responsible Government department.

For those wishing to follow the progress of these questions, their references are HL239 and HL240 respectively and can be found on the House of Lords website.
