In addition, possible new comers to Cyprus need to carry out some basic thanks diligence with regard to titles, mortgages and the correct benefit. We have an understanding of that far more or fewer an condominium/household independently of dimensions, high-quality and many others is duly bought at €300.000 to Chinese – a question lifted by the Pafos Lands Office lately. This means that some unaware customers have been had due to the fact the uniformity of benefit is not standard.

We will present far more facts when we occur to know and stage out the misinformation which may well be specified by various expert services including, regrettably, the immigration department.
