Re: Leveling Land & Laying Concrete Driveways

There's an article by Antonis Loizou on the subject that you can find at Houses on Agricultural Plots in Cyprus . Have the restrictions been lifted Pan? Regards, Nigel, this was the proposed case (I have a PP presentation by the Planning dept. giving all the reasons to stop development) that they w...

Re: Leveling Land & Laying Concrete Driveways

Hi David Just to add to what Pantheman has advised, I believe the land you're considering is classed as agricultural (because of the 1% building density). If it is agricultural land, planning permission will almost certainly be refused. Regards, At 1% I would say it is either protected zone or fore...

Hi Pantherman,

Thank you.

In that case someone I know installed theirs without this permission! Not the first time I'm sure in Cyprus.

I will visit the land registry.

Thank you again.

david
Its the planning department you need to visit for such items.

Good luck.

Hello Nigel,


It has 1% build but the plan is a prefab which I've been reliably informed does not require planning.
This is not true. Any structure built or placed on land requires a permit.

Hi Pantheman My wife's mother owned half the property which was bought around 2005, the other half was her husband's. When her husband passed away, his share was transferred to her. When my wife's mother passed away in 2010, the whole property was transferred to my wife. Probate and Title Deeds wer...

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 ...
