Cyprus developers

Is it safe to invest in real property in Cyprus?

WHILE LEGAL CHANGES IN RECENT YEARS HAVE HELPED TO REDUCE THE RISKS OF BUYING PROPERTY IN CYPRUS, SIGNIFICANT PROBLEMS STILL EXIST WHEN PROPERTY IS PURCHASED WITHOUT A TITLE DEED.

Depositing the sale agreement with a Land Registry Office precludes the vendor from selling the property to someone else if no Title Deed has been obtained for the property being purchased. (However, in a few cases, contracts have been withdrawn from the Land Registry and the property has been sold to a third party.)

When a contract is placed with a Land Registry Office and the vendor fails to fulfil his contractual duties, the purchaser can petition to a Court to have the property transferred to their name. However, if there is no Title Deed, the property cannot be transferred.

Quality Home Developers Based in Paphos

Quality Home Developers is based in Paphos and operates across Cyprus. Cyprus is a property development firm recognized for creating high-quality developments that bring value to inhabitants, investors, and the surrounding community. We have produced over 2400 homes in Cyprus to far and continue to construct high-quality residential accommodation.

Each of our developments produces excellent new houses, which may be purchased straight from the developer. They are also an excellent investment option, whether you are a first-time buyer or wanting to diversify your portfolio — we provide full and off-plan developments in high-growth buy-to-let regions with high rental yields. We also give money to experienced developers who want assistance with commercial and residential developments. If we believe in your concept and recognize the potential, we will give the assistance you require.

Furthermore, Article 10 of the Streets and Buildings Regulation Law, Cap 96, states unequivocally that “no person shall occupy or use any building, or cause, permit, or suffer any other person to occupy or use any building, unless and until a certificate of approval has been issued in respect thereof by the competent authority.”

Buildings are inspected after completion to verify that they conform with the numerous permits and authorized plans for their construction issued by the planning authorities, fire services, and so on. These inspections also guarantee that fire doors and other critical health and safety precautions are present in the structure. Once issued, the ‘Certificate of Approval,’ along with the drawings, permits, and so on, is forwarded to the Land Registry, which may then begin the process of granting the building’s Title Deed (s)

In more than 20 years, I have not heard of a single example in which criminal charges were filed against someone who was inhabiting, using, or otherwise utilizing a structure for which no Certificate of Approval had been obtained. What is the point of enacting a law that will never be enforced? And even if it were enforced, who would be willing to wait the several years it takes the government to obtain this certificate before moving into their new home?

Further issues emerge when developers fail to complete developments, leaving incomplete roads, pavements, green spaces, and so on. In these situations, the unlucky buyers must pay for any pending work to be performed before they may receive clear Title Deeds. In other situations, the planning violations are so serious that Title Deeds are never given!

What type of property is risk-safe to purchase?

It’s typically a safe idea to acquire homes that have been issued with their crucial Title Deeds. However, it is not all smooth sailing.

Encroachment, or the construction of a property on the land of a neighbour, may be an issue in the communities. I would recommend that anyone purchasing an older property or land in a hamlet have its borders verified by a licenced surveyor.

In all circumstances, retain the services of an independent lawyer to defend your interests and do due diligence on your behalf. By ‘independent,’ I mean a lawyer who is licensed by the Cyprus Bar Association and has no ties to anybody else participating in the transaction. The UK Foreign and Commonwealth Office maintains a list of English-speaking attorneys on its website, which can be found at Cyprus – List of Lawyers and Translators/Interpreters.

In Dublin, OS Holding has completed numerous renovations and home improvement projects. Our drive and focus are entirely focused on you, resulting in a truly customized and personalized service. True design, we feel, is about understanding our clients’ objectives, requirements, and habitation patterns.

We’ve established a 5-step procedure over the years to ensure that every project works well and is completed on time and on budget.

We start by having our clients visualize their lives in the finished house and describe how they want to interact with it.

This 5-step procedure can be used for any large-scale property renovation project, including:

  • Creating flats from a house
  • Consolidating two flats into a single unit
  • Extensions and loft conversions
  • Renovating all or most of a property’s rooms

step 1: is to define each space/room

Knowing what each room in the house will be used for and who will use it is critical to create a design that works for everyone while still appearing beautiful. For all of our projects, we produce 3D designs, and space delineation is always the first step.

Step 2: Approval and planning.

After the design is finalized, the client approves all parts of the project, ensuring that everyone understands what needs to be done and when. Preparation is essential, and we always make sure to complete the necessary effort to prepare each room for renovation work before we begin.

Step 3: Remodeling

At this point, the existing area has been completely remodeled to accommodate the new design. Depending on the project (whether it’s a loft conversion or an extension), we’ll also replace the roof, walls, windows, and doors to make the house watertight again.

Step 4: Fitting out

The initial element of this stage, depending on the project (whether it’s a loft conversion or an extension), is to make sure the property is water tight again by installing new roofs, walls, windows, and doors. We look to complete all internal work such as plastering, doors, electrics, and plumbing once the home is watertight.

Step 5: Fixtures, fittings, and finishes

Everything from wallpaper and painting to kitchen and bathroom installation is included in this final step. Before handing back to the client, the property is clothed with all of the furniture and furnishings.
