We are often asked if it is possible to visit Cyprus using the Schengen visa? This is possible, but there is a certain condition – Russians and Ukrainians using this visa must have already visited at least one country. For citizens of other countries, it is necessary to obtain a guest or tourist visa.
The licensed lawyer can be entrusted with the verification of documents and property, preparation and agreement of the contract.
The chosen banking institution will make all required payments to the property seller on your behalf. To open a bank account quickly, you may use legal help. A bank account is also necessary if you decide to pay for the purchase through a mortgage loan. Should the procedure not be clear or if you require further clarifications at this stage, our staff can help you further.
When the preparatory stage is completed, you may proceed to the final transaction stage. Once you sign the sale contract, pay the required stamp duty, and making half the housing cost, your lawyer must file an application with the Cyprus Council of Ministers and obtain a permit. As a rule, this process is a mere formality, if this is the first real estate purchase bought in Cyprus and your name does not appear on Interpol's lists due to any legal problems.
A perfect purchase must be registered in the District Land Department. A package of documents is collected and submitted by a lawyer. After registration, information about the purchased property is entered in the Land Registry. This serves as a confirmation of the ownership right until the title of the owner is obtained.
After receiving approval for a VAT exemption, buying a primary property market (secondary housing is not subject to VAT), payment can be transferred directly to the property seller’s account. At this stage, you, having entered into the possession right, receive the keys to your own ready-made property. If the property is not yet completed, it is recommended to use the ESCROW system, which most Cyprus lawyers will guide you through. In this case, the amount of payment will be transferred to the seller gradually, as construction progresses.
If the property is bought in the secondary market, it can be done immediately. Sellers of new and under construction real estate usually do not have titles yet, so the buyer will have to wait. At this time, the right to property will be confirmed by the sale contract, registered in the Land Department. The application for the title on behalf of the client is filed by a lawyer.
