also as we need to transfer are pensions to a orops pension do we need to by to get citizenship or can we rent and how do we do this and what are the cost thanks patsy
If you are a British citizen and are of pensionable age, you need to speak to the DWP. You will need to fill out a form called an S1, which you use to get your medical card here for your 'free' medicals.
You do not need to transfer your pensions to QROPS. I am assuming they are private pensions. You can leave them where they are, take draw downs, take the lot in one go (mind you will be taxed) or buy an annuity. Just a note of caution about QROPS, be careful with whom you are dealing with, there are a number of scams regarding these.
You cannot get citizenship immediately, you will need to get a residency permit, for this you need to visit immigration and they will tell you what documentation you will need.
You are free to rent or buy being an EU citizen without any problem.
Cost to rent depends on the property type and location, so until you know this, not possible to say, but as an example, a 2 bed apartment in Famagusta area approx. €350 per month plus utilities and local taxes, in Limassol, about €600 plus.
Hope this helps.
