Read on a post that you have to get confirmation of no criminal record from the local police station in UK before becoming resident in TRNC. Is this the case? I have not heard this before, if it is then I shall need to arrange it.

Yes you will need a "CRB" police check as part of your PTP application.

Halffull....you are supposed to do this anyway just to purchase in NC as part of your Permission To Purchase Application.



Did your advocate not tell you this ?

Halffull.....I hope you are right,but I would check with your advocate about whether in fact you do have PTP.

I can't see how you can have if the police checks have not been done !

Thanks cronos. So before I come out in June then I ought to get one and bring it with me? Would this be acceptable or do I have to have it sent to my advocate? I will be in touch with her and check out that she is correct in that we have PTP, as she told us.

I'm sure it would be fine to bring it with you...as long as it is the original document.



Seriously....push for a proper answer about the PTP....it doesn't sound right .....we had to get our police checks right at the very beginning....and we are still awaiting PTP after 30 months !



All the best with yours though.

Hi halffull,



You should have been given a number for your ptp application by your lawyer. You could then check if permission has been given, yourself.

You don't actually need a full CRB check, if you contact your local police station they will give you a statement to say that you have no criminal convictions.It dosn't take as long and it only costs about 12.

We were told in Dec 2008 when we applied for our PTP that there was a new rule which was that you no longer had to have a CRB as they now do in an Interpol check instead.

This is because under the rehabilitation of offenders act in the UK you have a clean sheet after 7 years of being a good citizen whereas Interpol keeps your record for life.

The police report takes about 6 weeks to be processed so you will have to get the application in if you want to bring with you in June!

The form is obtained online and it is processed in London. The fee was 10 when I did it last year.

I'm surprised you had never hear of this ?? In the 5 years I've been here - it's always been standard. Don't rely on your solicitor to do this. You are still in UK ? Go to your local police station and ask them. It's far easier than hoping. Contact me if you need help on this or anything else : jacklobb@gmail,com

Halfful,



As a couple of the members have already said, ask your solicitor for your 'Permission To Purchase' number and the date it was logged then ring up the ptp office, ask for Sevil (she speaks english) and confirm that the process has been started and the date your application went in.

Halfful, I can confirm what The Siants said. Last week one of the owners on our complex went to see his advocate as i had told him that he needed a police report in order to get his ptp. He came back and told me that they no longer require one as it is now all done through interpol.





But then again that was last week !!!

Oh no!! PTP up the Swanee then.

But still, as it will probably be some time yet, I live in peace with myself as it was a long time ago.

I wonder if time pays credits??

Will ask our advocate for the number because we have an email assuring us that we have PTP from the ministry but she does not quote the number.

Do you need the police check if you are just applying for residency and NOT buying a property?

I think you will find you have to get your clean sheet document from your local nick via scotland yard as interpol is not a police force its just basically a comunications office that passes messages from one country to another
