Many people visiting Cyprus fall in love with the island and immediately go on a property buying spree. It’s as if they put on their ‘holiday heads’ when they step off the plane throwing common sense and caution to the wind.
Added to this the different business practices, legal systems and cultures, and their dreams of owning property in Cyprus can sometimes turn into expensive nightmares.
