With the increasing complexity of the property market and the constant introduction of new concepts and measures new for the island (although not so in the European countries) it is advisable that the potential purchaser seeks professional advice prior to concluding a deal in order for hardships and disappointments to be avoided. This advice is specially useful to the foreign purchaser who has to encounter the problem of different laws and local attitudes. For this reason this firm has prepared the following tips which may be useful to the local property purchaser.

Cyprus is an independent and sovereign republic with the elected president (5 year election cycle) as head of state. The legislation power lies with the elected House of Representatives and appointed council of ministers. The legal system is based on the British/European system with independent power exercised by judiciary. Cyprus is a member of the UN, the British Commonwealth, the non-aligned movement, World Bank and IMF, and shortly to be a full member.

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.

If you buy property but the property is not transferred in your name immediately, you are urged to deposit your contract with the District Lands' Office within two months from signing. If you do not deposit your contract and the seller changes his mind about the sale, then, your only remedy for the breach is damages, whereas if you deposit your contract you can seek (through the Courts) specific performance (i.e. the transfer of the property in your name). The depositing of the contract operates also as a charge on the property.

For those who want to buy a plot of land and put up a building there, there are certain major points they have to bear in mind. As a rough and general rule, and provided there is a "satisfactory" access, a single house can be erected on a plot of land. If more than one house is required, then water must be provided. The water supply may be either from a public or private source. In the event of private water supply (usually a borehole) its quantity and quality are tested by the Water Development Department.
