How to find the owner of a plot?

Postby Sotos » Sat Dec 01, 2018 4:22 pm

Would the Land Registry, or any other authority, be willing to give me the name and maybe contact details of the owner of a plot if I provide them with the registration number and details of that plot? If not, then maybe some estate agent with come good "connections" would be able to do this for me, in which case which case will the Estate agent expect commission, or can I just pay him a fee for finding me the owner of that plot?

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.

It's not a secret information and there should be a procedure to follow. For example the Electricity authority gets all info it wants and sends letters to owners in cases they need to pass poles in someone's property. If the property is within a municipality the the municipality itself should have all info because they are taxing everyone.

Sadly, in Cyprus everything is secret, there is no transparency, The electricity board has the power by law to obtain the info it needs, unless you are the owner of a plot of have interest in it the land registry will not give you the info.

If you were an owner of an adjacent plot you could search your neighbours, but you can just go and ask them who owns this plot.

This is another reason why Cyprus is high up on the corruption list, exactly because we have no transparency.

In all fairness,

The EAC is a semi government organisation providing utilities.

If someone is drawing power from them, then they should be able to obtain the property owners information so they can send a bill. That is, if they dont have it already.

Information about who owns what private property should not be made public so any bambos, yiannis or kyproula can get your personal info.
