North Cyprus Property Victims – Distance Make the Heart Grow Calmer

A very strange and not unwelcome calm seems to have come over me.  I can only attribute this to being some distance from the problems I was encountering in north Cyprus.

Yes, I still feel very strongly about all the wrongs heaped on the innocent purchasers who through no fault of their own have found themselves ‘conned’ out of hard earned money. Whether by stealth mortgages, stealth memorandums, no builds, part builds, bad builds, no utilities or expensive builders utilities. Take your pick. I will have missed some because if nothing else the villains have no lack of imagination when it comes to ripping off the purchasers. It is important to note that these villains come in all shapes, ages and nationalities, ripping off their own does not faze them at all.

Of course the majority of Turkish Cypriots are decent people, but what I would love to see is the ordinary man and woman in north Cyprus saying ‘enough is enough’, let us sort out these villains and prosecute them to the full extent of the law. Silent acceptance will just allow these people to carry on regardless.

All professionals should distance themselves from those in their profession they know to be bringing them into disrepute. That includes, Advocates, Banks, Lending Institutions, Estate Agents, Surveyors and Vendors of all types. We all know that the majority of the afore mentioned are decent and honest. The problem is, we as consumers tend to forget the good service and experience we have had, we do not forget the bad, neither should we. If you pay the going rate, you have the right to expect the best that person/business is capable of.

north Cyprus is beautiful, do not let those who make memories ugly win.

Never give in never give up.
