Re: blocked buyers law

That's very interesting, Nigel, and confirms Mr M's theory. Of course places like Peyia were small villages until quite recently.

Re: blocked buyers law

Thanks for all this information and advice, Nigel. Is 'encroachment' a common problem in Cyprus, then? We have noticed that GPS mapping is now used. wWould this perhaps be having an effect on the Land Registry's perception of ownership, when compared with hand drawn plans. Mr M, as an engineer, is k...

Re: blocked buyers law

should there be an anomaly, might the land registry issue a title deed with a memo attached? could one refuse to accept this? it would surely be worse that useless.

Re: blocked buyers law

My question was hypothetical. As we are in England most of the year, it's difficult for us to follow things up.
I wondered if there was a procedure to follow in the event of a problem coming to light.

blocked buyers law

can 'owners' of property on a communal project use the 'blocked buyer's law to obtain their individual title deeds when the complex has not yet received the division permit? if so, what are the risks? how does one convert to a clean title?

fire doors

Apparently the law now requires us to fit a fire door to our property. Does anyone know where they can be purchased in the Paphos area - or anything else relating to the subject, such as whether or not security locks can be fitted, can they be bought 'off the shelf' or do they have to be specially m...

Re: Division Permit

Thanks for your reply, Nigel. Can we assume that this is just a 'rubber stamping' exercise, as the processes necessary to be granted a division permit have already been carried out?

Division Permit

Since our developer stopped trading, with the aid of a solicitor we have been making progress towards obtaining title deeds. However, we've now spotted that the Division Permit appears to only have been valid for three years and has just run out! Please could you tell me whether this has to be renew...

Re: title deeds

Thanks, Nigel. The last time I tried to find an answer to this question, I was told that the Land Registry would give people three years in which to claim and pay for their title deeds and that if they didn't said deeds would be 'filed away' and one would have to start the process all over again. Th...

title deeds

Our title deeds may be available within the next year or two. I have heard that the Troika will not permit any delays in paying for them once they have been issued. Is this true? It would suit our circumstances better to wait a while. There is no threat to our property.

community expenses

Does anyone know what expenses or charges residents could expect to pay to Chairman and/or small committee for the work they do. There are 22 apartments on an easily run complex.

Does the Chairman and committee of a complex without title deeds have any legal standing please?

registration of chairman and committee

Does anyone know how we can check whether or not an individual has managed to officially register himself as Chairman in the Paphos/Peyia area? Can a very small committee agree between themselves that an 'Acting Chairman' can become Chairman? Nothing has been done formally but we are given to unders...
