Cyprus Real Estates Secrets

Feb 5, 2008
Development of land into villas in estates is now very common in the Paphos area, mainly on the hills between Paphos and Polis. Projects are developed to take the form of villages with the individual villas designed in traditional architecture. There are, of course, cases where the purchaser may have a good say in the design of his villa. The same type of projects are now being carried out in Limassol and to a lesser extent in the Larnaca area.

Cyprus is the lead nation that joined the European Union in 2004 which is another factor affecting the growth and prices in the property for sale market of Cyprus. It is expected that in the run-up to becoming a member of "the club", prices of property for sale in Cyprus will continue to rise at an estimated growth rate of around 20% per annum.The climate of Cyprus makes the island one of the healthiest places in the world. With 340 days of bright sunshine annually.

The contract in then longed with the Land Registry within two months if being signed which will prevent the vendor from selling the property on a second time, and will be a charge on the property pending completion.Application is made at the Central Bank at this time for the necessary permit for the transfer of purchase money. This application is not necessary if both the purchaser and the vendors are foreigners.The transfer of the title deed is then completed, the full price is then paid and vacant possession is given by the vendor.

Upon signing a contract, the Purchaser is liable to pay stamp duty which amounts to 0.115% of a purchase price up to CY 100.000, and then at a rate of 0.2% on any purchase price in excess of CY100.000.Land registry fees are payable when the owner ship of the property is transferred. This is on a sliding scale, ranging from 5% to 8% depending upon the value of the property.

Try to check whether there is any road or other scheme which affects your property or the locality in general. It is advisable that you buy a recent Lands' and Surveys' plan (a whole sheet) for the property you intend to buy, since on these plans many proposed public projects such as roads etc are shown. It is best, if you suspect any schemes in the area you wish to invest, to see the District Inspector (at the District Officer's Office) and/or pay a visit to the local Planning Office.
