Re: Man angry with Social Insurance throws chair at glass window

Whilst I don’t condone violence, I can certainly understand how he felt. I’ve been in the queues at the SI offices on several occasions, one of the last times I witnessed a man on his knees in the middle of the office upstairs as he had no money to feed his family or pay his rent. 😢 Mmmmm,,i guess ...

Cyprus,,a Greek island?

Both ex pat and Cypriot friends of ours seem to disagree weather Cyprus is classed as a " Greek island " as is Crete,Corfu Lesbos etc.
I have checked Wikipedia and other sites but nowhere can i find that it is.
Anyway why do we see so many Greek flags flying here :? ........Over to you.

Re: British citizens rights in EU/Cy after Brexit.

In todays Cyprus Financial Mirror https://www.financialmirror.com/2021/02/20/cyprus-real-estate-bashed-by-brexit/ Now that Brexit is over and done with, it made me think about what British nationals can or cannot do in Cyprus when buying real estate.

Re: Title deeds..A new twist.

2 questions Chaddy, Firstly if resident here for 20 years, what issue has Brexit raised in the deed issue? Secondly why do you think that 'Brits' are treated differently to any other Third country? As for buying here, I personally have never been busier with all nationalities. The main delaying fac...
