Re: Buying property on exchange land

Only other thing to think of is permission to purchase, PTP. Must be obtained before kocan can be handed over. You can potentially hand over your money and then be refused PTP. One issue covered under this is making sure site is nowhere near anything military.

Re: Buying property on exchange land

Another question is that of permission to purchase which you must obtain before you can receive kocans. Is there anything that may prevent you obtaining this? Also make sure development is nowhere near anything military as this will prevent you receiving PTP.

Re: Buying property on exchange land

The advice you have been given from so called professionals is all you will get. There is no definitive answer to the risk of buying in North Cyprus, my opinion.

Re: Flying drones in North Cyprus

Given the large military presence around the country and how rigorously they react to indiscretions around anything remotely military I would not even take the thing to North Cyprus.

Re: Heating in winter

We used a log burning stove in the main living area. Not cheap but very effective.
When very cold used to put air con on in bedroom for half hour before going to bed to take chill off room, or when having a shower.

Re: British Residents Society

They like to make a lot of noise regarding how good they are but in reality why would any government take notice of a group of foreigners who represent less than 5% of the residents of country? Never did join because they treated wife and I like s*** when we asked for help when we first arrived in N...
