Why to Purchase Immovable Property

The Department of Lands and Surveys of Cyprus of the Ministry of the Interior, is the oldest governmental department of the public sector since it started its operations in the year 1858. The initial and main responsibility of the Department is the identification, registration and recording of immovable property on the island. The Department of Lands and Surveys in the year 1924 has mapped all the properties in Cyprus and since then it updates its maps constantly. Each property has its own file in the Department of Lands and Registries where all changes (transfers, partitions, mortgages, sales agreements etc.) are recorded since 1858. Hence the buyers not only can be certain for the validity of their title but they can also be certain for the boundaries of their property. The purchaser of an immovable property in Cyprus may benefit by rending them out.
