AS REGULAR readers of Cyprus Property News will be aware, approximately 130,000 properties in Cyprus have yet to be issued with their all important Title Deed.
One of the measures introduced by the government in efforts to resolve the Island’s long-standing Title Deed problem is legislation known as the Town Planning Amnesty. In addition to simplifying and modernising the procedures involved in issuing Title Deeds, the legislation provides a one-time window of opportunity for those whose property has been built illegally or which suffers from planning infringements to apply for their Title Deeds.
