Navigating Recent Changes in Cyprus's Property Law: A Boon for Buyers

Cyprus's real estate landscape has seen a significant shift, thanks to the recent changes to the Sale of Immovable Property (Specific Performance) law. These changes have far-reaching implications for both current and prospective property owners, highlighting the importance of staying informed in a rapidly evolving legal environment.

How Have Property Laws Changed in Cyprus?

The amendments to the Sale of Immovable Property (Specific Performance) law are a game-changer for buyers. Notably, these changes allow for the post-deadline filing of sales contracts at the Land Registry. This development is critical because:

  • Courts can now order the filing of a contract at any time deemed fair and reasonable.

  • This flexibility is particularly important if a contract was not filed according to standard procedures initially.

  • A recent Court of Appeal ruling demonstrated this leniency by favoring the buyer's interests.
