Re: Property Seperation

Hi RSW I found it - there was an error in the translation of the Title Deed you sent. I've sent you information from the DLS website. Your apartment is one of ten on your development - if this is the number in your block, then you are a separate entity and will need to set up a Management Committee....

Re: Title Deeds and the LRO

You're welcome Howard

Sixteen years to get Title Deeds is indefensible - the lunatics in charge of the asylum in Nicosia MUST sort out the mess.

If your tenant is good, why not wait a while to sell?

Cheers,

Re: Property Seperation

Hi RSW

If what you've been told is accurate, then you need to set up a Management Committee for the block.

I'll send you an email as I'd like to check out your Title Deed on-line.

Hi JulieM and welcome to the forum. CTO approval is only required for short-term holiday lets. As things stand at the moment you do not need permission or a licence to rent long-term.

Re: Tax on rental

Hi Chandresh and welcome to the forum.

The tax you pay to the Cypriot authorities can be used as an allowance to offset your UK tax liability.

Check out these notes to help you fill in the Foreign pages of your tax return.

Re: Title Deeds and the LRO

Hello Howard

I'm sorry to hear you'll have to pay your developer to get your deeds - this is extortion!

There's a developer in Apesia who did the same thing to some friends, but some managed to avoid paying following a court judgement.
