Do the TRNC advocates have any regulations or code of conduct which they must abide by?

I was thinking about buying a property in TRNC, but my relatives had told me a lot of strange stories about Advocates.

- When the building work stopped - my relatives were asked to pay 500 to have a meeting with the builder and Advocate

- when they asked for a copy of their contracts/builder land owner contracts/and other documentation they were sent turkish copies and when they asked for translations they were asked for 50 per page.

When asked to pay 4500 for an electric transformer for the site,they referred the matter to the advocate and they said they had to pay or be in breach of contract - They all paid through the advocate and no transformer was purchased.

What exactly are the responsibilites of Advocates to their clients/property buyers

You are better off dealing with the likes of the Kray's. They are all bandits and crooks and the only duty of care they have is to their Swiss bank accounts!

Maybe they sould be added to the HBPG Name and Shame list along with the builders - this would make them accountable.

Don't trust any of them however, should you wish to pursue a property purchase I'd look around in Nicosia. Leave the Girne ones alone and tell them what YOU are prepared to pay AFTER all legal work has been carried out to your satisfaction. To deal with crooks think with a criminal mind!

Hi Pipie

Wise advice, they wish they had done that, but there advocate assured them that all was well and everything was safe. Even stated when asked 'what would happen if Cafer Yucelgazi ran out of money' advocate assured them that the property as it stood would be theres - this does not appear to be the case.
