Hello can anyone advise on the following points please - Fantastic news after 5 and a half years i got an email to say permission has been granted along with a list of taxes etc to be paid.



I am in UK and the solicitor advises me that he will charge 250 to deal with payments etc he then told me he needs power of attorney (I thought they had but apparently not!!) this will cost an additional 108 and I need to take it to London for the Turkish consulate to notorise it!! (like its around the corner) and then get it back to them.



I asked if my hubby could come over to trnc to sort and they said he would need power of attorney for me however if it was not in turkish and done by a uk solicitor who did not do it in the correct format it may not be any good!!!



They also said one tax will be 592 if paid before end of September and if not it will be 2370. !!! What?



is there an easy way to do this? has anyone got any advice? many thanks Fee

hI 1fee;

If you had bought your house at 79000,they are the correct amounts.Based on that at the moment there is %75 off from normal %3 stump duty.The offer ends at the end of september.

Though,the construction co.s are pushing for further extension on those dates.



If I was you,I'd grab the chance,just in case.

Your lawyer could email you the Power of Attorney. You can go direct to the TRNC office - no appt. necessary or go to a local Notary Public and then send the doc to the TRNC office.



You could both give POA to your lawyer or you could give POA to your husband and he could bring the POA out with him.



I think is it highly likely the discount will be extended.

Might be worth giving Marian Stokes of the Homebuyers Pressure Group an email. I think in the past she's told me that solicitors are charging more simply because they can, relying on naievete and trust.

You can always challenge what the solicitor tells you, but even with evidence, my experience is that they won't back down. Sadly.

I agree with Anthony Smith, give Marion Stokes a ring or email. She does answer emails as she done so to me on numerous occassions but it may even be worth the cost of you telephoning her.

Marian had a computer glitch at one stage - this could simply be the problem - best to try again. She is the most kind, considerate and caring person.

Hi For power of attorney you need to attend a Notary office in NC with your passport, in person.



Only the person who's name the property will be in, needs this.



to consider.....putting the property in a son or daughters name...to lessen inheritance liabilty?!



Also....the solicitor will not need power of attorney if you sign all the paper work...consider, the solicitor sending you the paperwork for signing, in an email, print this off, sign it, scan it, and email back....when you next go to NC, take the signed paperwork with you....all very acceptable.



Stamp duty is payable, I suggest you pay it ASAP, at the lower rate....do not forget, at least another 10% of various taxes will be due at a later date. ( 10% of the value of the build / property )



Any other advice please contact me via stua@fsmail.net ( subject NC )

Stewart,

Sounds a good idea putting the property into your childs name,the only thing that i would be concerned about is if they were married and split up.

If you can get to TRNC it is quite easy to do a power of attorney at a notary office (and cheap) you don't need your

solicitor to do it for you.

If you cannot get to TRNC, you need to either go to the embassy in London, with cash or 22 postal order & your passport , or if you cannot get to london you can have your signature witnessed at a notary public solicitor, who will charge you around 60, you then post the power of attorney letter along with your passport and a postal order for 22 to the embassy who will then stamp it and send it back to you in about 4 days. You would then send the POA letter on to whoever is acting for you.

The POA letter is not complicated, you must have your full name and passport no, and the name and passport no. of the person you are give the power to. You should specify the POA is to act as your representative on the purchase of property ......and to pay all taxes and register at the land office in order to transfer the property to your name

Stewart, you said "to consider.....putting the property in a son or daughters name...to lessen inheritance liabilty?! " If they want to do that, they wouldn't they need to go through the POA process again for the offspring as the permission they have just received is specific to them is it not?



Not trying to be smart, just wondering!
