I will just comment on changing car ownership, something I have just done when I bought a new (to me) car.
VERY EASY AND QUICK.
You need to have completed the transfer form TOM9, the English version is TOM9e. Both seller and buyer have to sign this form, NO NEED to have the Muktar also sign it PROVIDED you both go together to the transport offices. We used the one in Dherynia Ind. Est.
The buyer must have insurance for the car.
The car must be taxed and have a valid MOT.
The fee was 8.58 euros (or thereabouts).
Took us 5 mins only, and they issue you with the new Registration Document (Log Book) and keep the old one.
Regards the other issues you mention nothing is perfect in any Country, Cyprus is no better or worse than any other.
The Forum is a super place to get help and/or advice on virtually anything!
Seasons Greetings,
Geoff

Thanks geoff, yeah I know there are worse places to be but when you move to a new country all things need getting used to and I'm getting there slowly lol, thanks for info re car thought it was simple just seemed hardwork when I read about it Xx

Why not buy your car from a respectable dealer? Let them do the work, and give yourself the chance of some comeback if there's a problem? Seems logical to me! Cheers Alex

That's exactly what I did about 6 yrs ago Alex. Haven't regretted doing it and am still happy with and using that car.

Dealers. I went round some dealers when I wanted to buy a van. You would think the vehicles were gold plated by the prices they were asking. I bought a newer one from this forum, at less than half the price these sharks were asking, .

I have just done the same, and it was low mileage!
