Buying Property In Cyprus

Jan 30, 2008
A survey on any resale property is strongly recommended, just as it would be in the UK or elsewhere. Our Cypriot team or your lawyer will be able to recommend a surveyor to you. He will inspect the property and prepare a report, eventually showing any defects, which would not be visible to everyone's eyes. It will save you unpleasant surprises at a later stage, and depending on the type of defects stated (if any), you may get a reduction on the price or you maybe in a position to request the vendor to repair them, or insist additional guarantees be inserted in the contracts. One thing is for sure; you will know what you are buying. A surveyor will not allow his love for a property to cloud his judgement as you may have done.

Property owners in Cyprus are advised to make a will in Cyprus to cover their Cypriot estate. A Cypriot will speed up the process of obtaining probate in Cyprus.Inheritance Tax is payable on a Cypriot estate and rates are on a sliding scale depending upon the value of the estate. Full professional advice should be obtained with regard to making a Cypriot Will and Inheritance Tax planning.

There is no difficulty in finding apartments to buy in any of the towns in Cyprus. Land development into apartments is very common and there is an abundance available for sale at any time all over Cyprus, the vast majority being very new. There is also a tendency to sell apartments "on paper". (ie when construction plans are still on the drawing board), or during construction, as a means of raising part of the finance for the project.Apartment prices are not uniform. They vary to a great extent with the location, the quality of the project and the town where they are situated.

In these circumstances, promises and the willingness of locals to help may meet the Authority's objections. A more serious consideration however is section 4A of the Streets' and Buildings' Regulations. This amendment of the Law states that, in certain cases, no building permit will be granted to plots of land which are the result of field subdivision. Therefore, the derivation of the site's title must be examined and verified by the District Lands' Office.

If you are contemplating the development of a complex/costly building, you are strongly advised to appoint a project manager who will manage the design team and the whole development. Also the appointment of a quantity surveyor on such large scale projects is strongly advisable.Central heating is not generally required in the seaside towns (although this is a matter of own judgment) but air conditioning (at least in the bedrooms and for the seaside areas) is recommended. The cheapest form of cooling is the normal wail mounted units. Split unit type with heat pumps is increasing in popularity and it is an alternative to be considered.
