Anyone who has ever been interested in buying a property in Northern Cyprus, probably heard from friends and acquaintances that it is unsafe and it can be taken away from the owner at any time. Let's deal with these unfounded fears and dispel the myth concerning the real estate of this picturesque island.
Despite the fact that the TRNC is an unrecognized state, in 2010 the European Court of Human Rights recognized the legislation of Northern Cyprus, so all real estate transactions have since become legal and have full legal force. Based on this, it absolutely does not matter what Title (certificate of ownership) your property possesses, since since 2010 all titles have equal force.
Formally, Titles (another name is "Head") are divided into three types:
Turkish – the owner was a Turkish Cypriot or a foreigner until 1974.
Exchange – until 1974, the owner was a Greek Cypriot, then an exchange was made.
Donation – was issued to Turks and immigrants after 1974.
