Our experienced company formation advisors in Cyprus can offer more details on this subject.
 
The confidence in the Cypriot property market seemed to be growing, with an increase of the sale property deeds of 28% during the first quarter of 2016 compared with the same period of the previous year.
 
The country offers a number of quite attractive incentives for investors in the property market, like a 50% reduction of transfer fees for all sales or a 100% exemption from future capital gain tax for income on real estate.
 
In this article, our Cypriot company formation experts present a few important aspects related to setting up a real estate agency in Cyprus.
 

Registration procedure of a real estate agency in Cyprus

 
Real estate agents in Cyprus are regulated by the local legislation and have to be professionally qualified and register with the Registrar of Estate Agents.
 
In 2004, a new law was adopted with the intention of protecting property buyers and controlling unregistered agents. Our company registration representatives in Cyprus can offer more details related to this subject.
 
Real estate agents in Cyprus are closely monitored by the Cyprus Real Estate Agents’ Association (CREAA). Although not all real estate agents in the country are registered with this Association, it presents a higher credibility for those who want to activate in this field, which is an important aspect when opening a real estate agency in Cyprus.
