I'm an ex-patI living in Lapta and have the kocan for my house. I'm interested in selling and buying a house in Alsancak (The owners also have their kocan).



Do I need a new permission for the Alsancak house?



If the Lapta house doesn't sell for some time, how do I get over the problem of owning two properties?



Any help gratefully received.

yes you will need ptp. I sold a house in Catalkoy and bought land in Edremit so had to do the same. You will have to sell the house in Lapta before applying for ptp and when you sell, go to the Land registry office and ask them to cancel the ptp for the lapta house when you transfer the kocan to buyers.

As others have said. You deffo need a new PTP & you cannot own 2 properties at the same time. They make things easy for expats don't they ? I doubt if many would buy a 2nd time now, anyway.

Once is enough.

Thanks all for the above. Can I apply for new PTP without going through a solicitor?

Actually I'm not convinced of the above (although I used to think that was the case until very recently) I have a friend who has just bought her 4th property here, all quite legal and above board and only has P2P for the first property. (She actually owns all 4 at the same time) There does appear to be a way around these things doesn't there and that nothing is written in tablets of stone!

I have bought 3 properties here, got ptp every time and never used a solicitor yet. When I applied for ptp 3 years ago I declared that I had sold my Catalkoy house. When I started chasing the ptp, I was told there was a problem, as the Girne Tapu had not put in the report that the Catalkoy house had been sold and I had to get them to submit a new report, this has been in the last 3 months. I have no idea how one person can own 4 properties unless she has a business.

I always use Unsal Gurok the certifying officer, for all my transfer, he is opposite the law courts. When I transferred the kocan for an apartment I sold 2 weeks ago it cost me 100 tl

You can apply for PTP yourself look on the HBPG web site it tells you how to do it.

You don't need a "solicitor" to do any conveyancing in TRNC. Anyone who has paid 1000+ to these sharks for simple and routine work a noter could have done for a fraction of the cost is IMO naive and foolish. That's what fueled the 2004 greed train that ended up crashing into the buffers.
