  1. Thanks for the response Ed. Is that a government scheme and where can I find it? Thanking you in advance, not just for answering, but also for this informative website!!!

    Ed: Thanks for your comments Esp. No it’s not a government scheme. I suggest you speak with your insurance agent to see what’s available. If you have difficulties, get in touch via my contact page and I’ll put you in contact with a chap in Limassol.

  2. Well that didn’t take long.

    BTW, is there any assistance in Cyprus for landlords that haven’t and probably won’t receive rent for the foreseeable future?

    Cheers!

    Ed: You can get Landlord’s Rent Guarantee insurance if your tenants cannot pay the rent. But I doubt you’ll be able to get this now because of the high volume of potential claims.

  3. When will Cyprus change the law if the land in Cyprus is own by individual family members the .why do the law make it hard to separate it .the council try to make us pay for same think they won’t separate.
