Legal Information

The legal system in Cyprus is mainly based on the British as well as the Greek legal system. Most laws are translated into English. In addition, the Land Registry is also based on the British one, which is probably one of the most reliable and advanced system in the world. Legal fees are much more reasonable than other European countries.
