LOCAL TRNC BUSINESS: Compass Independent Chartered Surveyor

When the attraction is magnetic you need Compass.

Congratulations! You are buying a part of a beautiful island blessed by the gods and bathed in sunshine for most of the year. This is part of the attraction – but buying and owning a property here can be very frustrating. On this island the very idea of maƱana, doing something tomorrow, would be considered supersonic so everything takes longer than you would think. Getting agitated is not the answer, what you need is someone who shares your sense of urgency and can help you navigate through the winding ways of the local community.

Stuart Hillard FRICS is a Chartered Surveyor with 30 years experience advising clients on property matters. His wife Lynda also worked in surveying and estate agency in the U.K. for a similar length of time. Add that to their knowledge and love of the island, their level-headed attitude, plus their wealth of local associates, and there is nobody better placed or equipped to act as your representative.

Stuart is currently the only practicing Chartered Surveyor in Northern Cyprus, a member of the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors with an internationally recognised professional qualification. He is well known for his regular ‘House Doctor’ articles in the Cyprus Times. Local English newspapers in Northern Cyprus have highlighted the problems with property purchases, where inadequate or improper advice has been given resulting in serious situations, if not catastrophes, for the people concerned. Stuart was a founder steering group member of a pressure group formed to lobby the government, with a goal of setting standards for businesses involved not only with construction but the buying process as well.
