3. Do I need to hire a lawyer?

It is not compulsory to hire a lawyer, however, it is advisable to ensure all your rights and title deeds are covered, as well as the land registry and all further operational details in the buy/sell property market. Do not enter into a contract before being assured by your lawyer.

4. Do I have restrictions in buying property in Cyprus?

If you are an EU citizen, you do not have any restrictions. If you are a non-European citizen, you will have to obtain a permission from the Council of Ministers in Cyprus. This process is simple with the right team of experts.

5. Property Fees & Taxes

The main reason why Cyprus has become a great attraction for investing is the business-friendly tax system that offers many advantages. The key benefit of a resident corporation is the uniform 12.5% corporate tax rate which is one of lowest in Europe.

When buying property, taxes include immovable property tax, Capital gains tax and other property taxes paid to the local municipality; this varies depending on the size and value of the property. Fees on property include your Stamp duty and transfer fees which are according to the price of the property. It is important to include these standard fees/taxes in your budget when setting it out and note that VAT is also applicable on these.

6. What is a cancellation agreement and is there a fee?

If a property does not have title deeds then a cancellation agreement is drawn up that cancels the contract between the developer who still holds the deed and the seller. Then a new contract is made between the developer and the new buyer. A fee is charged for the existing contract between the original buyer of the property and the developer to be cancelled. This is a cost of selling without deeds and is undertaken by the seller. The cost is generally 3% of the original purchase price but depends on the developer.

When buying a property without deeds you may be able to cap a future possible cancellation fee at around 500 Euros in your contract when you purchase.

7. How do we calculate property transfer fees?

The purchase price is usually the market value and the fees are based on the market value of the property. The first 85,430 Euro is charged at 1.5% if the property is in one name. If the property is in two names then each person gets this allowance, so for two people its 1.5% up to 170,000 euros. The next 85,430 is charged at 2.5% and any amount over 170,860 Euros will be charged at 4%.
