Terrible editing, often mixing up commentary and pictorial locations!

I was annoyed when the presenter said about the world renowned "Party resort" of Ayia Napa, then went on to sit in one of the restaurants at Potamos and say that it was part of Xylophagou...

It featured our complex but they didn't like the pool as it was overlooked, dam shame as I didn't particularly like them much either.

Still, hopefully, when they come here they will experience that 'misery' you so delight in, which will make your 'smile' broaden on your face and add even more "great joy and happiness" to your life!! Evil or Very Mad Rolling Eyes

BTW, given your previous comments, would have thought you owned a grand mansion on the coast, rather than a small flat in the middle of nowhere!! Shocked Big Smile

The buying process was never mentioned, no mention or warning about title deeds either.

The buyers were fully versed regarding title deeds by the programme, which asked for a lot of information from all the estate agents involved.

I did find it amusing that they wanted a 'communal pool' that wasn't overlooked.

We sold the Liopetri apartment soon after the filming.

"The buyers were fully versed regarding title deeds by the programme"

I think the point made by Cansweet is that it was not mentioned in the program thus leaving many thousands of possibly interested buyers unaware of the pitfalls of buying in Cyprus.

No, just a modest bolt-hole in Cyprus, the mansion is in the UK, that being the country whose politics you take such an interest in, when you don't live in it!!

Well, of course, despite the spiteful provocation one should never get 'personal' on here!! Rolling Eyes

I think the majority who go on these shows just want a freebie holiday and to get on telly.

I also think they should have to pay a fee of say 1.000, if they buy they get it back to pay towards a deposit.

It would stop the time wasters.

Given that, perhaps the people who are as thick as two short planks should also have to pay a 'deposit' before going on quiz shows, which they would forfeit if they don't achieve a certain minimal score! Rolling Eyes

The point being that the producers of all these programmes which feature the general public don't care about the suitability of the people involved........it's just cheap television for them!! (Which I do actually watch, so feel it reasonable for me to comment on! Cool ).

And why do they never discuss the maintenance fees which are the biggest bone of contention on any complex?

Good thing they didn't film it this week when the complex in Sotira has a double bed dumped outside by the bins on the road. 2 sofas left there a couple of weeks ago and yesterday a blue armchair but someone has now taken it home. Nice little place for rats to nest in plus with all this rain its sodden

Tried phoning Sotira council several times to get it removed but no answer.

Difference is the thicko's on the quiz shows do not get freebies, they just make themselves look stupid.

I watch them if they ain't much on telly, but I can assure you it ain't that cheap television.

They get at least 3 nights Accommodation in a 4 or 5 star hotel. They get their flights, they also get all meals paid for and most drinks and get driven every where.

Then there are the presenters, the film crew, who are also put in hotels with all food and drink paid for, plus of course their flights as well.

Plus of course all their wages.

So! no it ain't cheap television.
