Guide to Buying property in Cyprus

Currently Winkworth International markets select new build developments projects in Cyprus.

BUY

The process of buying new build properties in Cyprus, for UK purchasers is a simple process which is similar to that of buying in England and Wales. One would expect a purchaser to employ services of a knowledgeable solicitor, specialising in Cypriote conveyancing procedures.

It is normal when buying new build property that the developer will ask for a none refundable deposit in order to remove the property from the market, and for a sellers pack to be issued to the purchaser, purchasers solicitors.

Prices for new build property in Cyprus, that Winkworth deal with, range between €300,000 euros to €3,000,000 euros.

Properties tend to be close to the airport, secure communities offering golf and other leisure pursuits.

What are the costs for buying new build property in Cyprus?

The purchaser is liable for Stamp Duty upon purchase, which is calculated on the value of the agreed price. The rates are:

€ 1.50 per thousand for purchase prices up to € 170,860 and

€ 2.00 per thousand for the part of the purchase price exceeding € 170,860

The purchaser also needs to be aware of Property Transfer Fees that they will need to pay upon completion. Once payment has been received, the District Land’s Office will provide the Title Deed which shows the purchaser as the property’s legal and registered owner.

In all property purchased Winkworth is able to introduce solicitors and tax accountants to answer any questions assist with the purchase.

We market international properties in conjunction with our associates in Cyprus or directly with developers.

Any interested purchaser will be introduced to the developer or the developer’s agent after discussing the process, estimated fees and qualifying the buyer’s requirements and answering any questions they may have to in their envisaged purchase.

Acting for Cypriote developers in London

Subject to an initial meeting or conversation, as a minimum requirement Winkworth will in turn request from developers a detailed summary and schedule of the proposed project and assistance in order to complete our due diligence. Properties must be owned by a company of standing with the developer having had a proven track record of success in selling previous projects in Cyprus.

Winkworth’s aim for their client will to be work to maximise exposure to the British purchaser looking to invest in Cyprus. Working with the developer’s assistance we believe, as one of
London’s largest agents to be able to do this.

Each development project is discussed with the developer or their local agent by a director of Winkworth International, assessing marketing avenues and the client’s expectations.
