Re: Selling Charges

Nigel, Many thanks for all your replies, much appreciated, I will keep you posted on the outcome. Kind Regards, Paul Hi, Notwithstanding everything you have said, but I just wonder why on earth you are concerned about the external paintwork when you are looking to sellup??? Seems to me, you maybe j...

Re: Developers Mortgaging

Hello Jan and welcome to the forum. To answer your questions: 1. It's relatively straightforward to find out whether there is a mortgage on the land. The Land Registry can be asked to carry out a Title search and produce a report showing what the situation is. It's probably best if you get a law fi...

CGT Interest

Hello Louise, I wanted to ask you this question before I went back down to the tax office and got myself arrested. I sold a piece of land, the buyer had a contract of sale that stated within 60 days we will complete. We subsequently went to the tax office filled in all the forms for them to tell us ...

Re: Green Area

Hi Pan, That's a good one! I have no idea! Logically, when the Title Deed is issued, it would be in the name of the developer. The Community/Municipality would need to get ownership transferred to their name - or perhaps they have a long-term lease on in at a peppercorn rent - or, as it's a conditi...

Re: Costs of selling Inherited land

Hi Lamb, The 20% you pay will be the Capital Gains Tax - this will be calculated on the the amount you receive for the land (125,000) less its worth on the Title Deed (I'm not sure if the 2,000 you mention is the 1980 assessed value of your share or the total plot). And yes, they will take inflatio...

Re: who do i need to contact if i want a valuation of my land?

Hi, I need some advice? I live in England, however i own a share in some land in Avgorou, which is divided between 6 people, including myself. One of the six is missing in action for over 30yrs now, can we still go ahead and sell? I have been notified by my aunt that there is 3 interested buyers an...

Re: Certificate of Final Approval

Ah, I understand. You already have the Title Deeds. ( I suspect the developer may have got the land divided before he started construction ) Nigel, not wanting to be the bad guy here, but I have some confusion as to what you just stated. I am assuming that the land is in a build zone (hence the bui...

Re: classified section

Hello Pan, I've already had a couple of enquiries about sponsoring the site - I'm still thinking about it. I look at all my websites as a 'social business' as defined by Muhammad Yunus. All I'm really looking to do is to recover my costs - and I get a few cents every time someone clicks on one of t...

Re: Certificate of Approval

Hi Pan, I agree that Sheila is very unlikely to be prosecuted. However, those buying property need to ensure they abide by the laws of the land (otherwise anarchy would reign). IMHO, Article 10 of the Streets and Buildings Regulations Law, Cap. 96, provides a vital safeguard for buyers that the pro...

Re: Green Area

Hi Pan, Last year our local developer in Erimi set out a green area next to me. He put a wall around it, put in some trees and other plants, a watering system and childrens' play equipment. It looked very nice when he'd finished. But now it's overgrown, most of the trees and many of the shrubs have...

Re: Certificate of Approval

Hello again Nigel :D , Thank you for your reply so quickly. It kind of makes a mockery of it all doesn't it. If its illegal to occupy a property without the certificate of approval and this takes months to be issued then everyone is breaking the Law . Its a no win situation really. Unbelievable. Wh...

Re: Green Area

Nigel, probably a bit out of date now, but my understanding of obligatory green areas was that they were public spaces. This means that the local council is responsible for its upkeep, but is also open to to member of the public too. The fact that this developer has left it in a bad way is a reflect...

Hello Nigel, how about a classifieds section on this board, buying and selling properties etc? Would be a way to draw people here to check whats on offer. Just wondered. Also, wondered about forum sponsoring. Do you have it. I may attract some local businesses and would help the upkeep of the board....
