Are there any lawyers in NC who are "good" and don't expect to be paid vitually all their before completing their remit? I have recently emailled most of the lawyers recommended on this splendid website and all seem to be asking for around 50% upfront and the rest on filing PTP application. Is this normal?

It's a money-grabbing cartel occupied by double-dealing individuals who would be struck off if they practised in the UK. If you need legal services get recommendations for a good notar. Avoid these "lawyers" as much as possible.

I have to agree with PtePike on this one. You can submit the PTP application yourself, it's only a form. I was 'only' charged 500 by my Estate Agent who said he was doing me a favour as advocates were charging 1000+ in Nov 05 (and of course PTP would be no problem, just a formality). As time dragged on with no decision I checked up on my application by visiting the office myself. I found out I had been refused (I wonder why my Estate Agent hadn't told me?), now I wonder if I get a refund or do pigs fly?

Hi rtddci,



Can you apply for PTP from the UK? I thought that you had to go to an office in Nicosia.

I don't know if you can simply post your application. I suspect not as there is a fee. There are many people visiting NC and I'm sure someone would be prepared to deliver it for you.

What about using the Turkish embassy in London? Is the TRNC a totally separate entity or could they not issue a PTP?

Hi Pipie,



Did you use a good Notar? Are they quicker/more reliable/cheaper than solicitors/advocates?

Hi guys

I am starting the Buying process, and have been advised to find an independent solicitor.

I have also been told that I can use a Noter for the legal work and that he will fill in the Permission to Purchase form.

Is this true ?
