As you're probably aware, a new law was introduced at the end of October enabling those who were unable to get their Title Deeds due to their developer's debt(s) to apply for them.

I'm trying to find out how successful this has been and I'd like those who have applied or are thinking of applying for their deeds to complete the poll above.

If you had problems submitting your application (other than waiting a long time at the Land Registry) can you please post a reply explaining what those problems were and whether they have been resolved.)

Thanks

Just changed this from an Announcement as people don't always spot them.

Thanks for the poll Nigel - will be interesting to see the results if there are
sufficient votes.

Cheers

It seems that only when LR start examining applications do the problems start to arise. All was well when I put my application in, only some weeks later did I get called back. So many of those ticking box one probably will need to change that to box 3.

My problem is that the Developer is contracted to pay the IPT. While Paphos LR accept this, they claim the deeds cannot be transferred till the developer pays the IPT. Taking in the actual law and a press release from the Minister has as yet not budged them on this. My Lawyer's advice is to drive to Nicosia and see a manager.
I am trying to get a written refusal first, so I have something to complain about. All I have got is "we will take it up at the next management meeting" Crying or Very sad

As our developer has been liquidated (I wish) and has not paid any IPT, we had to pay 2013 IPT on his behalf, including the interest, in order to get a tax clearance certificate from the tax office, which is now deposited with our application at the Land Registry. Therefore we have paid 3 IPTs.

Yes that is how I understand it as Nigel is trying to find out how successful
the changes since October have been so far.

Thanks for your input so far - and it's good to hear that some people have now received their Title Deeds as a result of this 'new' law.

From the problems reported so far, it seems that the Land Registry office in Paphos has issues accepting applications if the developer has not paid back year's IPT. From other emails I have received, other Land Registry offices do not see this as a problem. (A friend of mine in Limassol applied successfully even though his developer hasn't paid a cent in IPT.)

Those who would like a copy of the actual law, which includes an English translation provided by a law firm in Limassol, can download it from

It's also worth noting that Land Registries will only accept original documents or certified copies - they will not accept photocopies. (Ever tried using a photocopy of your passport to travel?).

Regards,
