What personal information Maxi, it's just a name. Many people know that I live in address abc, or own plot xyz, how is that a problem? And why is it a problem only in Cyprus. In the UK, you can log onto the Land Registry website and get a summary title for any property, how is that a problem.

As I said, the lack of transparency in Cyprus, is the main cause of the high corruption we have hear, too many places to hide!

You can get a summary here as well, I am wondering if the "summary" in the UK includes name/s, address/es, telephone number/s of owner/s etc.
On the other hand if this info is personal as Maximus said, then presumably no other government/semi-government organization should be able to get it without court order. It's kind of puzzling and maybe it's because it's a source of corruption as you said.

It is a well known fact that in all towns there are huge areas of undeveloped lands to the point the Government extends the building zones on and on, and there's still not enough land to build. Perhaps the reason is they want to hide the fact that all that empty land is in the hands of a handful of people who keep it empty to speculate on it's increased value.
Food for thought....

I am no expert on this matter, at all. However, I would not want my personal, contact information being given out like confetti without my permission.

i would have thought that it would not be correct to give out other peoples personal information to anyone who so happens to walk in off the street and ask for it.

The correct way, in my opinion would be for the land registry to contact the owner on the prospective buyers behalf to ask whether they would be interested in selling it. If they are then, the potential buyers information would be passed on to the land owner for them to make contact or a swap of contact information can be arranged through the land registry.

This is how I would do it and I would also charge some kind of 'administration' fee to filter out time wasters that would tie up public services.

Maxi, if you were on complex and made application to the land registry to do a search on form N.50, as long as you have an interest on that site, ie and owner or developer, then the search document will show who (names), bought (price paid), date registered and the names of those other owners as well as all the encumbrances on that site.

So where's the problem exactly. Of course they don't make it easy to get the info, but at least the name and address of the owner, is not going to cause any problem for the owners.

Soto's can first ask at the muktars office, or any local cafe, someone may know who owns the plot he is interested in, but officially it is not easy to get this info.

This is why we are 50 years behind most other developed countries!

In my view, the problem is in how peoples information can be obtained by who ever decides to make it their business to know who you are, where you live and what you paid for it.

I dont see any problem in making inquiries if your interested in buying something and contact information can be exchanged as I have already mentioned above.

if an owner of a property wanted to sell it, wouldn't they put it on the market and advertise it in the first place?

what did you call me? thats not nice.

i was only toying wich ya

you cannot sue a tc cause you have stolen their properties in the south
and you cannot sue a settler cause they are not allowed south of the border

the only ones you can sue and ingilizzoes who generally may have property in the uk or maybe not.

good luck with that. but my offere still stands. i can find you the name of the owner ad a modest fee of course. you get nout for nout.

Try asking the muktar of the village, they may help if you tell them you have interest to buy.

You can do search at the land registry, although I am unclear if they will entertain you if you don't have some adjacent plot.

Hey you can always ask.

If you have no luck, let me have the title registration and I will see what I can find for you.


Thanks for the tips! I wouldn't know how to find the muktar in that particular area but I know where the Community Council is, would they help? For sure they know since they send the property tax and other bills for each property.

Are you an Estate Agent B25?
