Thanks for advice,I will keep a close eye on things.If I have any proplems
I will let you know and will mention this site if he wants any more bad
I also have links with a lot of people in nicosia if I need to take legal advice to resolve any proplems .
But I have had no trouble so far.
I wish we had been able to draw on the advice of others on this board, We purchased before this board was set up, although we have not done to badly there were a few things that we could have included if we had known about these.
At least you can now keep an eye on things, and be on the ball.
This thread highlights the fact that all members experiences are different.
I used " Mr Tommy" and was very pleased with the service i received. He answered any queries promptly and always responded to queries by e mail the same day.
His secretary phoned me on one occasion and was very friendly.
Sometimes i did have to wait a while to see him but this was when i called in "on spec" without an appointment and he always saw me.
I may have cause to use his services again in the future and trust that he will deal with me in the courteous professional manner that he did on my initial purchase.
"you're never fully dressed without a smile!!"
I used g mintis very pleased with him and even now after i have finished with him his so helpfull i was asking about schools for my daughter a week later via post details of schools and there prospective book. he arranged our will £50 pounds and even today im asking him for advice and still receiving for free jane

I have 'Tommy' as my solicitor and have to honestly say....he has so far proved to be a complete waste of time, money for old rope!!! Maria (secretary) has really been the 'solicitor', I really don't know what he would do without her. You don't have his un-divided attention and are always kept waiting. He never reponds to Emails or letters.
Never takes you seriously enough until you start thumping the desk, which I did incidently on my last visit!! I resorted to visiting another solicitor, who is english and practices not only in Cyprus but also in the U.K. Just wished i'd found her sooner!
Where have you been? Nice to hear from you again,,, would it be possible to have the name of your solicitor, most people used Tommy and George Mintos as they were the 2 well known ones at the time,
Now thanks to these boards people realise that the contracts they received from them were just bog standard and did them no favours, it would be helpful to new members who have not purchased already ..
Hi Mils, I sent a reply but it doesn't appear to be on here (????). It's Monday morning though, so it wouldn't surprise me if I've hit the wrong key!!
It was basically to tell you (and anyone other interested parties) that Stelios is London born and bred, and unlike some reports I've read here, deeals with you directly and responds to emails immediately. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend him.
His details are listed in the Advocates section, but I'll list them here for you again.
I'm using Stelios too as recommended by Anne. Spent all day with him last Tuesday at the Land Registry and he's wonderful. He sorted out all my problems and saved me from making what could've been a very expensive mistake with my land purchase. My agent said that a Larnaca solicitor would've let it pass, so I'm really glad I used a Nicosia one. He can do everything by email and phone, but he came to Larnaca to sort me out because my life is just sooo complicated! Getting there tho.....
I've been away from the board due to selling the house and moving tonns of stuff, have had 'murders' with 'BT' to re-connect phone line (took them 6 wks) and my broadband package went astray to another address!!
But it's all settled down now so I'm back to the land of living after a well deserved rest (if you can call it that!) in Cyprus!
Getting back to the thread, the full name of the solicitor is:
Our advice would be not to use a solicitor recommended by the Builder as they depend on them for ongoing work.
One or two people on our development used Tommy, who was recommended by Chaholis`s sales people. We are now having problems with the builder who has sent out electric bills to some, not all, the property owners, even though we are still on a generator. Tommy is sitting on the fence.
We used Andrew Klydes, he is a barrister, is actually very approachable, not a bit like barristers in England, speaks better English than us and doesn`t appear to be faized by taking on the builder.
He has an office at Larnaca and Ayia Napa, if anyone would like his number, don`t hesitate to contact us.
ps: is anyone else having problems with builders sending out bills when still on a generator?
