Welcome to our latest blog! Today we’re focusing on our recent trip to Larnaca in Cyprus.
Are you one of the unfortunate souls who prior to 2008 took out a Swiss Franc or interest-only mortgage to purchase your dream holiday home in Larnaca, Cyprus?
If you can resonate with the above, you are not alone.
There are countless others in your situation, still struggling to pay off their mortgages abroad on their foreign homes. You see, a lot of these types of mortgages were created pre-2008, while the market was still booming.
The banks thought this ‘moneygoround’ would never stop. Oh, how wrong they were!
Cyprus’s entry into the EU caused a lot of problems for Cypriot banks as they were overexposed to:
- Greek government debt.
- Local property companies.
- Overleveraged property ventures.
As Cyprus is such a small country, they were taken advantage of in every way possible leading to some pretty unethical banking practices, with many clients became burdened with these terribly designed mortgages. This meant that the Cypriot economy plummeted to levels that it STILL has not shown any significant recovery from.
At EU Property Solutions we have spent well over a decade now helping people like you pick up the pieces from the fallout of the 2008 crisis. As part of our fight against the big banks, we went over to Larnaca, Cyprus to take a look at some of the developments there.
During our time in Cyprus, we checked out developments such as:
- Golden Hills
- Pelagos Breeze
- Paramount Gardens
- Regal Gardens
You can see some pictures from our trip below.
If you have any unwanted property in these developments please get in touch! Thanks to our close relationships with many European banks, EU Property Solutions are well equipped to offer guidance and support to you during this difficult time.
