Re: Certificate of Final Approval

Hi E, You're doing a pretty good job at confusing me as well :) It used to be the case that you could own the land, but someone else could on the trees on that land. But I understand the law was changed some years ago and this is no longer the case. I suspect having 'χαρούπιa' on your Title Deed is ...

Re: Payment for sale of property

Hi Pete, Your lawyer should write to you confirming the legal fees and disbursements involved with the sale of your property. If he hasn't done so already, get on the phone. The proceeds of sales often goes through a client account as this enables the lawyer to pay any Capital Gains Tax, etc arising...

Re: Certificate of Final Approval

Hi E, On the face of it, it looks like you have a 380/1087 portion (Mερίδιο) of the plot - Pan's earlier observation that you have a share in the property - approximately 1/3 of it - and the bank is holding this share of the Title as security for your house only. The 'oλo' means 'all or 'whole'. But...

Re: Hello Nigel

Welcome Mervyn, The way their building here, they're going to need a few more Vasilikos before too long! I'm afraid that the behaviour of some of lawyers here are part of the problem. My wife and I were out to dinner a couple of weeks ago with an archaeologist whose husband is a lawyer. He said that...

Re: Snagging List

Hi Esmeralda Your lawyer should have included a clause in your contract about snagging - but obviously from what you say he didn't. Such a clause would have allowed you to hold back an amount of money until any snagging had been had been completed. (So your first task is to strangle your lawyer) Alt...

Re: Certificate of Final Approval

Hi Esmeralda, Sorry to be a pain - but could you have a look on your Title Deed - I'm still not sure of the situation. If you have one of the new buff coloured ones, take a look in the 'Mερίδιο' column, it's on page 2 in the darkened area - that indicates your share and you may have some other pages...

Re: Certificate of Final Approval

Hi Pan, From what Esmeralda's said " The land is now split and we both have the title deeds for the land ", I assumed that the land has been split and Title Deeds issued. Someone did contact me some time ago - they'd bought a share in a plot of land, and the person who'd bought the other share defau...

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) What you need to do is to get them updated to show that there's a house on the plot. So your developer needs to have the house inspected to check that it conform...

Re: Certificate of Final Approval

Hello Esmeralda and welcome to the forum. Firstly, it's the developers responsibility to obtain the Certificate of Final Approval. The way the system works is that the development is inspected by the local Planning Authority. Once they are satisfied that the development conforms to the various Plann...
