In the UK it would be unthinkable to part with your money without receipt of title deeds. A transfer of property can be done in a day in most cases you may not require a solicitor. By the way, Cyprus offers a quality of life incomparable to most European nations, however there is no utopia anywhere on the planet. The Cypriots are the friendliest of people you are likely to meet anywhere but they can also be highly motivated by ....fucking money and more fucking money !!


Don’t forget the driving...................... and the beards of course. :D :wink:

Would have given Cyprus 9 out of 10 for Life quality, but gave 7, deducted 1 for driving, ( most Cypriots are only suitable for riding donkeys) and one for those Mullah beards, apparently Cypriots believe that beards are .....sexy !! There again some think that ....indicating is not ...cool. Love you

As the others have said, buying is straightforward here if you have a good lawyer.

I bought an apartment last year in a complex deal (there were mortgage arrears and the bank were trying to repossess.).

We used Louise Zambratas in Limassol and she handled everything, the bank, transferring title deeds, transferring utilities, etc. completely painlessly. They also had Russian lawyers that could communicate with the seller!

I must say… Larnaca is dirt cheap! You won’t find anything with that kind of money in Nicosia!

Gotcha, luckily i’m not after Nicosia since it’s too far from the sea and wouldn’t make sense to move to Cyprus at all if i bougt there.
What would you guys say about economic sutuation on Cyprus?
Is real estate on peak? When was the bottom?
Cheers everyone!

I wouldn't say that. GR has constantly been one of the best and IMO helpful posters on this forum when need be and I'm sure he knows my post was in jest.
