Hi Ickster



I very nearly purchased from them but was not happy with exchang title deeds and wanted turkish title. However I did meet up with them and look at the site. Excellent location in Kyrenia and i found their service and proffesionalism second to none. If yo are comfortable with the tiltle deed i would recomend them

My concern was with exchange title deeds there is always the chance you may be liable to compensation at some stage to the original greek owner of the property and particularly with assets outside the TRNC there is also a risk from any potential claim allbeit small, circumstances could change quickly if there was a successful legal case. I personally did not feel confortable with this.



With Turkish Title Deeds there is no risk at all of this happening 100%. There is the recent publicity/rumour of the TRNC holding back on titlle deeds for turkish title property but I was advised by my attorney it would take possibly 2/3 yrs anyway at the earliest before you would get your deeds. I am not aware anybody has been refused other than there appears to be delays. I have recently purchased and am not really worried at all a lot can happen in 2/3 years. In the meantime I can use the property , sell if I wish etc . TRNC goverment appear to modify laws week by week. I am prepared to take the risk as I have paid a fraction of the cost for a completed fantastic property that would have cost me at least 2/3 times the price anywhere else in Europe

Hi Ickster

We also looked at the Blossom development site, and plans and loved the modern design, and the location, we met with the developer and found him to be a really nice, professional and friendly man. He was even going to convert a 1 bedroom apartment into a 2 bedroom apt for us for only a 1,000 extra.

We had made up our minds to put down the deposit the following day, but there was one last site to view and that was Lemon Grove in Karaoglanoglu.

We fell in love with the site and the location and decided that we would prefer to be near to the sea than the town.

If you decide on Blossom good luck to you I'm sure its a great investment.

Theresa

Personally I wouldn't recommend buying on a development site. Much wiser to buy a property that has already been completed, connected to water & electricty, snags ironed out and title deeds ok. There are plenty to choose from. With the current financial chill there is no guarantee that any development will be completed as many have found to their cost already unfortunately.

I am buying at Blossom Apartments in Kyrenia. I visited the site in March this year fully expecting to be pressurised into a decision on the spot. No pressure was applied, if it had been I would have backed out immediately. I insisted on various alterations to the Contract as regards Late Completion Penalty Payments and Stage Payment percentages, these were agreed without too much difficulty. The developers Solicitors are rather slow in my opinion but matters seem to be progressing in a proper manner. I would agree that buying in a foreign country causes some concern and I do feel that Blossom could be more attentive to customer contact. So far I am happy but aware of possible snags, I think!!

Hi Dashing



Good luck with your purchase. I think they are a good company and as I said in my last comment i could not fault the service of their sales manager and he was very flexible



Mountbatten



As far as Turkish Title Deeds are concerned last week on another thread somebody announced they had just received their TTD's. I personally still feel comfortable with this type of deed. Problem is if you are not prepared to take some risk you will never buy in NC. Also if the negotiations on a solution turn out be positive then it may be irrelevant

Since my posting in August 2008 I have nothing but disappointment from Blossom. Broken promises, unfulfilled deadlined,demands for Stage payments for work which has not been carried-out, no response to emails ,etc etc Back in 2008 I was impressed by the then Sales Manager,since that time there have been several paople who have made empty promises to restore communication with their buyers and re-build confidence. Regretably these promises have come to nothing. I am in regular contact with two other couples and extend an invitation to others in this same situation to make contact with me,either through this forum or my email address. Incidentally the Contracted date for completion of Blossom Apartments was 31/08/09. The expiry date for the days of grace was the 28/02/10. Blossom are now well into the Penalty period against themselves.

Hi Dashing,

Your experience with Blossom mirrors mine exactly apart from the contract completion dates. Have they actually paid you any penalties as according to my contract they are now due. It is almost impossible to get anyone at Blossom to respond. The only time they contacted me is when they want money.

I am contemplating trying to get their assets frozen as they are a TRNC registered company. Is there anyone out there that has anything good to say about Blossom???

Better to keep on contemplating - because you'll be 'shovelling peas with a pitchfork' for, at least, the next decade, and I shudder to imagine the litigation costs involved.



Welcome to TRNC, where 'dunny-roll' is worth more than Sales Contracts!

Hello Guys

I am an independent property advisor, And I have been to Blossom site on 2008 and I was prepared to sell their products. But before I take them onboard, I wanted to see some improvment on their sites.

Now we are in July 2010 and there is no improvment site, thats why I wouldnt recommend.

Anyone who is planning to purshase a property, specifically offplan, make sure you get an expertise opinion.

As we can see it in this posting. Someone was happy to buy blossom in 2008 because she like the developer. Unfortunatelly, they made the wrong decision and good luck to them.(pls get legal advice)



About Exchange and Turkish Title, It doesnt make any difference.

There is plenty of people who transferred the turkish title under their name. I know people transferred under company name too.

On the other hand on exchange title, IPC is paying full compensations, for more details you can contact me, I can provide proof.

With all due respect too many people in N Cyprus have suffered at the hands of "advisors" in relation to property.



And for you to claim that the type of title deed is irrelevant , and also that the IPC will now be a saviour for everyone with Exchange Title is a nonsense.



Until the TRNC changes its laws , the best advice that any "advisor" could give regarding property purchase in TRNC is DON'T.

But if anyone decides to take the gamble,it should be NO KOCAN , NO MONEY !

Hı Cronos,

If you go and deal with not qualified advisors, or cowboys, offcourse you might suffer. And agree with you. thats why pls be carefull. but you cant put every one in the same basket.



On the other hand, I dont know if you are aweare ECHR recognised the IPC and up untill now IPC paid 43,428,850 GBP to the individual Greek Cypriots. This figure is untill 30.06.2010



Recent example: 11400m2 land in Alsancak is compensated in 10.06.2010 and IPC Paid 218,750 GBP and the Greek Cypriot owner took the money.



Up untill now 3,962,467m2 is compensated. This is 2961.4 Donum.

Total Restituted area is 445,508m2. This is 332.96 Donum

Please do not advice anything, If you got no knowledge about it.

All I can say that get an advice from someone, and make sure you are 100%.

If you do everything 100% right, You will be 100% safe and comfortable.

Regards

Firat

I would most strongly suggest that you contact Marion Stokes at The HPBG.



She holds a weekly surgery in the gardens at the Pia Bella Hotel every Tuesday afternoon.



No Kochan No money is the best immediate advise, but there is still the nightmare of property settlement arising from



any political settlement with The Greeks. There are NO guarantees at this point.

So, Firat, as an 'honest' property advisor, what action do you recommend to people already cheated by your government by buying pre '74 Turkish Title?



And don't, please mention about re-applying for PTP, because who would be prepared to pay the enormous fees involved to be scammed again?



However, if you can source a buyer with 300K [in our hand - buyer pays all taxes] for a very special 4 bed, 3 bath, 1 donum, large s/pool, etc., villa with own private sealed road, please get in touch again.

Msg10 More sound advise from the illustrious Private Pike.





reality is....................



No Brits who applied for their PTP are being granted it on Pre 74 Turkish title property!! No PTP no kochan, then that



leaves you open to "memorandums" which are a charge, authorised by a court ,for ANY unpaid debts the developer may



have chosen to leave unpaid. The"memorandum" confers the right to the holder to TAKE THE PROPERTY YOU HAVE PAID FOR



to auction to pay for THE DEVELOPERS DEBTS!



Now wonder Pike now posts under other names since he has been banned from almost every B/B. and hides his true



identity behind the sailor boy suit. Talk about "Hello Sailor" Its his advice you should not touch with a bargepole!

Wyn,



Pike's msg 10 was posted almost 2 years ago !



At that time people were still claiming that PTP on Pre-74 Turkish Title Deeds was being given to foreigners...no problem.



We now all know that this is not true.....foreigners are NOT being given PTP on Pre-74 for any applications made from 2006 onwards....FACT !



Therefore,if you are a Brit or other foreigner , do NOT touch Pre-74 Turkish Title Deeds with a bargepole !

You won't get PTP ,and therefore you can never get the kocan in your name.

cronus,



I totally agree. I have never advised people to buy. Pre 74 Turkish or otherwise.



In fact I used to take careful note of Bradus/Cronus postings that stated. Do not say anything until you have your kochan.



PIKE USED TO CROW THAT PRE 74 TURKISH IS SAFE. As you now know to your cost IT IS NOT!



I know know that your advice to me was equally sound.



The whole property buying scene in the TRNC is corrupt, and a crock of S-------! MY view thats all!

I went the site last month. Kyrenia is a wreck and will never get finished. There is a partial foundation which is rusty and overgrown with weeds.

Maybe time it was removed from Cyprus 44 as one of the ' 44Best Properties' See it was completed in dec 2009.!!!

Remember, a lot of people come onto this site for advice and might take 44 Best Properties as an advice tab and part of the forum.

I know its necessary to get revenue from adverts but a bit of vetting wouldnt go amiss.

We have a serious situation with Blossom and some flippant persons make totally irrelevant entries, message 29 &33 for example. Consider that there are possibly as many as 20 people who appear to be on the verge of losing consirable amounts of hard earned money and start to take this matter seriously,don't start bleating when it is too late to do anything to possibly prevent a potentially total loss.

Hi, I bought a flat in Blossom Kyrenia and since then I have been asking for a copy of the contract, but they never sent it back. At the begining they were puting excuses, and since a year ago they dont even answer.



Anyone has a copy of a contract from Blossom Kyrenia that could send me. Thank you.



Anyone is in the same situation as me, or have any information regarding this development?

Contact me on my email address. Together with others I am chasing this matter trying to find out exactly what is going on.

Consider doing all you can to prevent memorandums being placed on the property. If the builder is in financial difficulties this unfortunately is what could happen.Remember with memorandums ita a first come first served policy.So get in there quick.



All the best
