PROPERTY CONSULTING & MANAGEMENT
After the banking crisis in 2013, the real estate market in Cyprus is more complex and there is a need for independent professional advice to find good acquisition opportunities and to avoid potential problems in permits and title deeds.
In cooperation with licenced real agent agents, we study clients’ needs and objectives and offer solutions which take advantage of opportunities in the market and which have good prospects for value appreciation and/or rental income.
We use our contacts with local banks, estate agents and property developers to propose various options to our clients, to acquire, develop, lease or dispose all types of property – land, apartments, houses, offices, shops, warehouses, shopping centres and hotels.
Before completing any transaction, we do due diligence to evaluate prospective investments and we confirm the town planning permits so the client’s investment is secure and safe. We can also represent the client during the conveyance process at the Land Registry and the local authorities.
In cooperation with associates in all towns, we also offer property management services such as collecting rents, paying taxes and utility bills, renovations, garden and pool maintenance, house cleaning, and any other service required.
