Helping You Build a Life Overseas

Welcome to the Cyprus Buying Guide – your guide to purchasing your dream home safely and successfully in Cyprus.

 
There are so many reasons why would-be expats from the UK are attracted to a new life in Cyprus – the fantastic climate, a new traditional culture, its beautiful history and architecture, as well as the generally laid back atmosphere, and the fact that you can purchase a three bedroom detached villa with a pool, just a short distance from the beach, for the same price as a one bedroom flat in the UK’s cities. 
 
Despite these positives, it is really important to make sure that you consider anything that could go wrong during the purchase process, as well as any pitfalls that may occur on the way. Every step of this journey, from your initial plans to visiting Cyprus to find a home, to sorting out finances and completing on your purchase, must be treated with absolute caution. If one of these steps is missed out, rushed or performed wrongly, problems can arise – meaning you will lose both money and time!
 
The Cyprus Buying Guide is a free resource, home to everything you need to know about the Cypriot property purchasing process, helping you with every step. We can guide you through your initial research, make sure you get the best out of your viewing trip, assist you with making an offer and put you in touch with the right person to make the most of your currency transfer to actually purchase the property. Once you have arrived in Cyprus, we can also offer you support with setting up a bank account, learning the language and anything else you need to settle into your dream home in Turkey.
 
As part of the Overseas Guides Company, Cyprus Buying Guide employs writers both on the island and in the UK – meaning we can provide you with the most in-depth, up-to-date and relevant information. Our writers in Cyprus are expats themselves, meaning they can educate you based on their own experiences – offering guidance on what (and what not!) to do.
