Re: selling and Brexit

Hi Andrew I don't think anyone can say exactly how Brexit will affect Brits, but the Interior Minister said that In the event of a no deal Brexit “Cyprus stands ready to ensure that those British citizens residing in Cyprus presently, and until 29 March 2019, will be able to continue residing and en...

Re: Building a Custom Home in Tala

Hi Colin & Pam Finance all set up and ready to go - great. My architect is in Limassol but I'm not sure if he'd take on a project in Paphos. He did an excellent job for us and we've been in our house for 15 years with no problems. There is an architect I know in Paphos. He gave a presentation at the...

Re: Jointly owned

Hi officergent01 I agree wholeheartedly with what Pantheman has said. The Management Committee can get all the information it needs about ownership, how many bedrooms, etc. from the Land Registry. Indeed it needs this information to calculate each property's contribution to the communal fees and vot...

Re: Jointly owned

Hi officergent01 I have already answered your question at http://www.cyprus-property-buyers.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=37&t=1982 Your town house shares external walls and roof with other properties and therefore forms part of the jointly-owned property. You can confirm this by visiting the Land Regis...

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?

Re: Finding owner of niegbouring property

Just to add to what Pantheman has said: Your Management Committee cannot shirk their responsibilities by offloading them onto someone else. It is their responsibility to liaise with the Management Company on your behalf. Any maintenance agreement your Management Committee has with the Management Com...

Re: Communal

Hi officergent01 and welcome to the forum. Assuming that the roof of your town house and external walls form part of the communal area, the Management Committee are required (by law) to maintain and repair them. They do not need your consent to do this. The costs will be paid out of the communal fee...

Re: "Notes" on title deed

Hi Zoom123

As the prohibition results from an interim court order, there should be details of the judgement on-line and a lawyer should be able to find it. Do you have a copy of the deed?

Re: "Notes" on title deed

A Prohibition is an order preventing a legal person from transferring a title, it does not put time frames on the title. I thought it was strange - I've not hear of this before. But in the Citizen's Charter it says: PROHIBITIONS (INTERIM ORDER) Any Court before which an action for debt or damages i...

Re: Finding owner of niegbouring property

Hi Monman The first thing you need to do is establish whether the Management Committee has insured the building for for optional items such as: (a) Explosion of boilers or gas used of domestic purposes only. (b) Aircraft or other aerial devices or articles dropped therefrom. (c) Riot, civil commotio...

Re: "Notes" on title deed

Hi Zoom123 and welcome to the form. I have not heard of this situation before, but at a guess it sounds as if a court has issued an interim order preventing the owner from transferring the property until 2021; a prohibition . (You can read more about prohibitions on pages 50 and 56 of the Department...

Re: Finding owner of niegbouring property

Hi monman I suggest you download and print a copy of the law and give it to your Management Committee - link in my earlier reply. That contains the obligations and rights of owners and the Management Committee. If something is unclear, get back to me. The veranda is not part of the jointly-owner pro...
