Re: Trapped buyer

Good morning Emassociates and welcome to the forum. The first thing you should do is apply for the Title Deed as described at Applying for Title Deeds . This may take some time as the Land Registry is dealing with many thousands of cases. I can't say whether your developer has committed fraud, but i...

Re: Immovable property tax arrears

Hi Vonny

As your property has a 1980 value of about €3,075 there will be no Immovable Property Tax to pay.

I'm surprised that the 1980 value is so low? If your house shown on the deed?

Re: Do I really need to worry about title deeds?

Hi Lee and welcome to the forum. There are risks involved with buying a property without Title Deeds. In the worst case scenario, you could lose all your money and (potentially) the property could be demolished. After years of bad publicity, most estate agents will only advertise properties with Tit...

Re: selling villa

Hi Lorraine

I don't understand why you believe that Aristo has undervalued your property?

It's taxable value (not its market value) is assessed by the Land Registry.

Re: No building permit

Hi rainey and welcome to the forum. It's not a lawyer's responsibility to submit plans to the Planning Department - it's the developer's responsibility (and your problem has nothing to do with the Land Registry.) I expect you bought off-plan before the permits were issued? You can check by looking t...

Re: selling villa

Hello Lorraine I wonder if this has anything to do with the Hellenic Bank wanting your Title Deeds printed with this years date? Maybe they've valued your property at its 2018 taxable value that will be shown on your deed? This figure is the property's taxable value - i.e the figure used to asses yo...
