As the legal system in North Cyprus is the same as that of the UK, the whole process of buying property in North Cyprus is fairly simple. All legal documents are in English, and there are a wide range of highly regarded solicitors in North Cyprus who are bilingual in English and Turkish. Once the purchaser has decided on the property they would like to go ahead with, then the property purchase can be completed in a very short period of time.
Hiring a solicitor at this point is essential. The solicitor will be responsible for informing you and providing you with all documents relating to taxes, applications, processes from the time of sale through to the transfer of the title deed of the property you purchase. Furthermore, the solicitor will also deal with processing your permissions to purchase as a foreigner by applying to the appropriate Governmental Offices and will follow up on your applications to ensure completion. The solicitors in North Cyprus can be communicated via e-mail, fax and phone. Thus, constant correspondence can be ensured throughout the purchase process of a property. Moreover, a property purchase may even be completed from abroad if the solicitor has been granted the Power of Attorney to act on your behalf.
