Is it safe to buy property in Northern Cyprus? This is a frequently asked question. The simple answer is absolutely!!!
Currently the property market in Northern Cyprus is booming. British and European buyers are investing here as there is great potential and choice. Properties are very affordable right now, which makes it the best time for buyers to invest. The increased interest in North Cyprus properties reflects in the number of foreign investors, which shows in current sales figures, as they are on the rise
Many investors are attracted to Northern Cyprus because of the wide choice of affordable properties in the prime locations. As well as the beauty of the Northern side of the island, people quickly realize that they could very easily feel at home with the friendly local and international community.
With a population of no more than 300,000, you will be rest assured that North Cyprus is practically a crime free location. A safe haven away from the hectic and often chaotic life you may lead in over populated countries.
Although there can be misleading information in the media regarding legal issues, in reality, relations between both sides of the Island have improved over the past few years. The borders have now been open for a number of years, allowing Turkish Cypriots and Greek Cypriots as well as visitors from both sides, to move freely from the North to the South and vice versa. Tourists can now fly into South Cyprus airports, cross the border and holiday in North Cyprus with ease.
It is important that you take a little time to understand the political situation on the Island before you buy and make sure you understand the nature of the title deeds on the property you’re interested in. Then it would be wise to appoint an independent solicitor to conduct the required land registry searches for them.
