非塞浦路斯籍买家的权利

当非塞浦路斯籍买家在塞浦路斯购买房产,与塞浦路斯公民享有同等权利。

购房合同

买卖双方签署的购房合同约束双方各自的义务。卖方或卖方之一签署合同的人必须为房产注册所有权人或共同所有权人包括被出售的分割产权权益人。

签署协议后,买方可支付印花税(如下),在签署合同两个月内在房产属地土地规划部门注册购房合同。

买方支付注册费用50欧元。

合同注册的目的是保障买方权益,行程强制执行行为,避免一房多卖。

注册购房合同后,买方就被视作房产的权益人,最终获得地契。

地契

签发地契后,地契注册在买方名下且在土地局存档,档案内容为绝密且任何情况下都不会对外发布

土地买卖根据特别执行法81(I)/2011为买卖双方的买卖行为提供安全保障-法律要求买卖协议向塞浦路斯土地注册局注册。

合同在土地注册局注册即为具体的房产抵押行程障碍。

Joint Ownership

If the property is part of a jointly owned property, for example, an apartment, flat or a percentage of land, then an agreement must be entered into between the joint owners which will allow the sale of the property. The joint owners of the communal areas of the property will sign a distribution statement which will be deposited to the District Land Registry, this distribution will be taken into consideration upon the issuance of the title deed. In the event of an issue or non performance arising, after the submission of the agreement an application can be brought before a competent court in Cyprus, the court could issue an order requiring the parties to the agreement to perform their respective obligations under the agreement.

The application to the competent court for the issues of an order for Specific Performance may take several forms, for instance it may be an order requiring the completion of the sale and purchase agreement and/or any clause in the agreement or it may be an order to remove a mortgage attached to the property, subject to the court being satisfied that the debt for which the mortgage is made has been satisfied.

For the avoidance of doubt, immovable property or property includes land, buildings, fixtures, cartels affixed to land, rights and easements attaching to land. The law also provides that the agreement must be made in writing and incorporate the contracting parties details, a description of the property and it must be signed by each party to the agreement.

Contrary to the risks inherent in the purchase of the property in some countries, Cyprus has never been involved in the nationalisation of any sector of the economy or in the expropriation of property owned by non–Cypriots in line with the Cyprus government’s efforts to create a favourable climate for such investments.
