Sundance Villas Cyprus

Feb 9, 2008
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.

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.

The banking system in Cyprus closely follows the British pattern. The banks have many branches throughout the island which are efficient, modern and well equipped with the latest technology. Non-Cypriot citizens may open foreign currency and local deposit accounts without difficulty, although you will also find branches of many international banks at your disposal. Major credit cards, such as those within the Visa and Mastercard networks, are widely accepted in Cyprus.

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. The Minister of the Interior may grant a permit only if the Immigration Control Board confirms that the applicant falls under one of the following categories and meets the necessary criteria. (a) Farming. He possesses adequate land or a permit to acquire it and at least CYP250.000.(b) Mining. He possesses a mining permit and at least CYP200.000. (c) Trade. He has capital of at least CYP150.000,(d) Retirement. He has a secure income of about CYP5.000 per person and he and hid dependants will not work.

If there is a building on the plot you are buying, ask for the building permit in order to make sure that the structure is not illegal, as well as to ascertain the terms and conditions of the building.Please note that most of the above problems do not exist in case you buy a building site (as opposed to a plot of land/field). Even if the title deed registers the property as a building site, however, it is recommended that you go through the motions of checking the various prerequisites for development.
