Re: Communal Insurance - Service Standards

Re: Title Deeds and the LRO

Hi Howard

A judge not knowing the law? What a mess.

Re: Lawyer Fees not stated

Good morning Tim and welcome to the forum The Cyprus Bar Association used to mandate the minimum lawyers' fees for out of court work , which included the administration of estates.

Re: Finding owner of niegbouring property

Communal property is owned by everyone, whereas the floor of the apartment above and the ceiling of the apartment below are shared between the owners of those apartments (like party walls).

Are these the people who have set up in the coffee shops of the LRO

Re: Decomissioning a pool

Hi Peter and welcome to the forum Apologies for the delay, I've only just spotted your post. What the Management Committee should be doing is taking action against the non-payer to recover the money.

Re: Conversing with the DLO

Hi coops

I expect you're after information regarding your application for Title Deeds? There are around 70,000 others wanting the same.

There are people outside the LROs who may be able to help, but I wouldn't hold your breath.

It's a case of waiting. The LRO will be in touch eventually.

Re: Cypriot Pervoli

Hi deb and welcome to the forum.

Don't buy this land. In all probability the small building has been built illegally and you will not get planning permission.

The deed will show the land, but not the building and the chances of getting it added are zero.
