Re: Garden Item Survey

My belief is that there are very few 'ordinary' homes where a concrete statue would look entirely appropriate. I think you need a mansion or large country house before a statue would look perfectly in keeping. I disagree with you, Lloyd. It very much depends on the size of the statue and the ground...

Re: Paphos: 47 drivers booked in 11 hours

It is not just the ones who are caught who (hopefully) learn their lesson. It's the ones who saw the police out and about, checking other vehicles, and also the ones who hear or read about the checks and fines, that will learn a lesson from this. I was stopped for speeding on one of the roads in the...

Re: Law regulating self-catering accommodation rentals in Cyprus finally enacted

Good start, but they need to actually respond when self catering accommodation owners contact them to ascertain exactly what is needed in order to register. A friend of mine tried three times and had absolutely no response, not even an "it's not fully enacted law yet, we will let you know" reply.

I suspect that "fatal" is the number of accidents with fatalities, while "dead" is the total number of deaths. I.e., one accident, but two deaths ...

Re: Recommendation

Check with your muktar what the percentage covered area is for your location, and compare it to your plans. If your house is already on or near the limit, you will most likely be wasting your time applying for your covered porch.

Re: Paphos: 50 drivers booked in one day

I hope the "carrying passengers in unsafe conditions" was children not being belted in, or sitting on the driver's lap. I know I survived being a kid in a car without seatbelts, but speeds were lower and there was much less traffic. Plus it wasn't law then.

The shops all ran out last year too, fortunately early enough in the year that I could ask several visitors from UK to pop a pack or two in their luggage. Looks like GroundHog Day ...😀

Re: solicitor/power of attorney?

I agree with Tanny. Ensure the Power of Attorney is very specific, not general, and have an end date to it too. That way, it cannot be used for anything other than the sale of this one particular property.
