Re: Selling a 2nd Property

CGT will be calculated at the Sale Price minus the property's 1980 value (adjusted for inflation) at the rate of 20%. To calculate the inflation, the consumer price index (CPI) is used for the month preceding the disposal of the property and the month of acquisition, which in your wife's case will ...

Re: "Notes" on title deed

Hi Zoom123 It certainly looks as if you'll never be able to own the land - better look for something else. I don't know if Pan has any idea what this is all about? Regards, For me, this is too much hassle and if the MoI has been involved anything you do may take a very loooooong time to settle. Giv...

Re: "Notes" on title deed

It is possible that the person acquired the plot from the state (as a refugee status) and usually the note would say '... cannot transfer, withing 5 years of plot registered to the owner. It seems that this is the case according to the estate agent. The dates also match, since it is from 2016 to 20...

Re: Evicting a bad tenant - what is the process and how long

the Cypriot law and behaviour of locals is unbelievable (although I am fist generation Cypriot myself , leaving in UK) Sadly, it is not just Cypriot law and locals, I had rental properties in the UK and suffered the same problems, for whatever reason the law does side with the tenant, because we st...

Re: Evicting a bad tenant - what is the process and how long

Mazotos is NOT in the rent control area, and in any case, even it it were and she didn't pay rent she can be evicted. You need to speak to a lawyer to apply for an eviction order to have her 'legally' removed. Another popular method is to just go in when not there and change the locks, I doubt very ...

Re: Finding owner of niegbouring property

I think that the management committee could pay for this damage and recoup the cost from the bank/new owners as unpaid communal charges. Because of the bank have repossessed the property they are deemed the legal owners and are subject to the same terms as everyone else to pay. Try it, see what the ...

Re: Turkish land

Hi Nigel. Thanks for the very quick reply. Unfortunately, the Turkish boundary line runs right through my pool and outside utility room. To reset the boundary it would mean filling in the pool, demolishing the utility room and moving the gas tank, central heating and water pump - obviously expensiv...
