DISCUSSIONS took place in the European Parliament by the Internal Market and Consumer Protection Petitions Committee concerning problems with the purchase of property in Cyprus, in the presence of one of the petitioners who presented his case.
The petitioner described the many problems he faced and urged the Commission for their support. His complaints against his lawyer, developer and bank are typical of the many that I receive.
The committee session was broadcast live by EuroparlTV, the relevant segment of which can be viewed below.
As the chairperson says during her reply to the petitioner, the Commission has received many such petitions and concluded the session by assuring the petitioners of the Commission’s support and that the Commission will instigate infringement proceedings against Cyprus if the country is failing in its European obligations.
Please note – those wishing to comment on this article are advised to refrain from making unproven allegations against their developer, lawyer and any other persons. Failing to do so may result in legal action being taken against them.
