Cyprus Property Repossesions

Cyprus repossesions, I know there is a similar page on this forum, but the question was not answered. In the event of you losing your property, and of course there would be a shortfall, I say of course, because my ex wife is trying to sell her property at 2004 prices, almost 40% off, and its still not shifting! will the Banks pursue you in the UK for losses?

I have been told they will! what worries me is that it takes well over a year to reposses in Cyprus, plus costs, and then with the market being what it is, god only knows what the end sale price will be.
I read a horror story of someone handing in the keys to the Bank, the Bank then offered it to the original Developer for the outstanding amount! even though the developer was a gaurantor to the loan he was not obliged to take back the property, original purchase price was 119000CYP 200,000 euros the Bank sold the property for 83000! I guess there would be many costs, court fees and so on added to that as well? anyone with any news, or advice?

As the owner of this website, I've said it before but I am NOT a property expert. I therefore don't know the answer to your question. The only advice I can give is to contact a GOOD lawyer in Cyprus to seek advice.

It is impossible for any lawyer to answer a question here as every case is dfferent.

Good luck with trying to sort things out.
