LegalLegal Notes

Acquiring the Title Deed

Transfer of ownership from vendor to purchaser is undertaken by a simple procedure through the Cyprus Land Registry Office, either by the buyer in person or by appointing a third party (i.e. a Licensed Estate Agent ) with a Power of Attorney.

In the case of the non-Cypriot, a prerequisite of registration is evidence that the property has been paid for with foreign exchange.

When one buys a piece of land or a house, the seller as a rule must have a title-deed in his own name which can be transferred to the purchaser. However, if one buys a flat, especially one still under construction, there is no title-deed in existence for the flat and sometimes the seller does not have a title-deed even for the land on which the building is being built because it may still be in the name of the original owner from whom the developer has purchased the property and to whom he stills owes money.

These are matters which the purchaser's lawyer must consider and embody in the contract, as well as take such other steps as may be necessary so as to safeguard the interests of the purchaser.
