Re: Add name to Title deeds

Yes You are correct Trev, you will have a separate deed of the same plot/property showing your percentage of ownership. So the OP’s wife would be ‘transferring’ 50% to him so the 0.1% fee would apply on the market value of 50%. Jeanne Back in 2017 when my then terminally ill hisband transferred his...

Re: Current Cyprus Lockdown -non green energy issues.

My home island of Guernsey in the Channel Islands set up pretty draconian measures right from the start and everybody goes about their business or pleasure with no masks and only self isolation on arrival into the Island. Other than for returning residents and freight, the port and airport are close...

Re: Do we need a TIN ??

As far as I am aware, every resident of Cyprus now has to complete a tax form annually, so yes, you will both have to get a TIN from the Tax Office (both, because everyone is taxed as an individual, not part of a couple). Not sure if you can do this online or by phone, or whether this will have to b...

Re: Plastic septic tanks?

I would have thought that plastic might be more resilient than concrete, Kay? Which is why it's always safer to have pvc liner in your pool than mosaic or ceramic tiles. As you know, Lloyd, my pool used to be infinity with an underground plastic balance tank. The tank split on more than one occasio...

Re: Plastic septic tanks?

I don't know whether it is true, I have only seen concrete ones. However, as Cyprus is in the earthquake zone, I would assume that a plastic tank, which, if it is working properly, will be more than half empty, will be more likely to crush and crack with the pressure of the soil around it.

Yes, but Devil you are not dealing with Paphos administration.... 🙄
There are occasions when they seem to be a law unto themselves and interpret rules, regulations, whatever, somewhat differently to other districts.

Re: Open MRI scanner

Have you considered hypnotherapy to cure your claustrophobia - or at least alleviate it sufficiently to enable you to have the MRI scan?
My friend is a fully qualified hypnotherapist, if you are interested I will pm you details.

Re: UK banks to close many ex-pats accounts after Brexit.

My UK account is with Nat West International in Guernsey. As this is a separate entity from NW UK, albeit under the same umbrella, I hope they remain international in their customer base.
