Cyprus Today's Greatstone Lapta 2 Site Auction Article


I have to admit, I do not know anymore about these situations than which you can read here from Cyprus Today (22.4.17.)

A good friend of mine is flying out tomorrow to have her case heard in the High Court in Lefkosa this coming week. I wish her all the luck in the world. I know she has done everything according to the law of TRNC, but it seems there is no protection for purchasers against these dishonest property developers. Being in the right in the TRNC is just not enough and certainly not recognised even though it is obvious.

Most of the builders and indeed some of the banks who colluded with them should be facing prosecution in the criminal courts, but of course, that will NEVER happen. It is a disgrace that the innocent are dragged through the courts for years and even then and beyond my comprehension, the innocent still lose their property and thousands more in legal costs.

Buy in north Cyprus? Not if you want to hang on to your sanity and your money.

    I do hope for her sake that the case is not adjourned. That seems to be the preferred way of prolonging the misery for people who have to fly out to appear in court.

  • Polly Marples

    I hope not but will not be surprised it it does happen. Her Advocate was recently killed in a car smash so she has another from the same practice now dealing with her case.

    And so, sadly, the hearing never took place. Can they not understand how this sort of corruption looks to the observer?

    “We demand recognition”.

    “You don’t deserve it! You are corrupt!”

    Shrug …….

    So sad….so true.

  • Well done Pauline to keep this subject alive after all the years.
    I do hope you will finish your book. So this is all on the record – for ever! If you want an extra chapter I’ll give you one. I was luckier than most, I purchased four properties in North Cyprus (more fool me) and only had one ‘stolen’from me.
