Re: Ownership of treatment plant

Good morning AlRe and welcome to the forum. Firstly, the "Share in common area ownership: 1.42%" is not used to calculate your contribution to the insurance, maintenance, etc. The figure that is used is the size of a property in relation to the others within the jointly-owned building. You can find ...

Re: Can non residents still rent out property

Hi Howard

Paul Britton at Articrest will be able to advise you.

You need to declare your rental income in your UK tax return, but this can be offset by whatever you have to pay to the Tax Department in Cyprus.

Cheers

Re: Incompetent lawyers Limossol/they lost my file and deeds

Unfortunately, 90% of the lawyers give the rest a bad name.

The Title Deed will cost you €10.00 - I suggest you get a couple.

As for a MEU3, I don't know how you can get another copy. If you have your MEU1 I expect it will be easier to get a MUKW3.

Hi Allthetimeintheworld

If you have documents proving you own the property, you can get the deeds yourself from the Land Registry.

Re: buying residential land and building prefab permanent home

Your lawyer needs to check the Title to see (a) if there any charges lodged against it and (b) what you can build on it. He/she should also be able to find out how much of it you may have to give up to the municipality. You need to find the costs involved in supplying utilities to the site and check...

Re: buying residential land and building prefab permanent home

A Building Plot (in Greek οικόπεδο [eekopedoe]), will have a pavement, road, electricity and water to the plot. You'll have to visually inspect 'residential plots' - they may be residential land or residential land that's been subdivided into plots or building plots. Post the URL where you've seen t...

Re: buying residential land and building prefab permanent home

Residential plots vary in size and as far as I'm aware there is no minimum size. You should look out for a 'building plot' (in Greek οικόπεδο [eekopedoe]), which will have a pavement, road, electricity and water to the plot. If you just buy residential land you will probably end up losing some of it...
