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?

Regards,

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...

Re: Finding owner of niegbouring property

Hello Monman It is the Management Committee you should be dealing with as it is their responsibility - not the management company. So they should be writing to the owners. You can ask the Management Committee if they could resolve the problem with the balcony, but you cannot 'legally instruct' them....

Re: Best place to buy fridge freezer

Belated Happy New Year HBoss

I'm in Limassol and we bought our Bosch fridge freezer from Electroline (15 years ago). Initially the unit we ordered was too wide to fit, but they were happy to change it for a slimmer model and refund the price difference. And the Bosch is still going strong.

Re: Selling land/land dispute

Hi Klc and welcome to the forum. There was a boundary dispute on the land we purchased back in 1992.

Unfortunately boundary disputes...
