Have you got subsidence problems...clay...landslide? A group of very concerned ex-pats has been lobbying about sliding soils for more than a year. CPAG are alerted and Greens MP George Perdikis (the only MP to assist on environmental issues) is taking the matter up with the appropriate Ministries. Landslides are a well known, mapped geological hazard which are excluded from building insurance in Cyprus for any housing construction. The industry is aware of this, but chooses to market this cheaply bought land nevertheless, and innocent foreign purchasers are being duped into buying property on soil which is totally unsuitable for safe construction. If you simply buy a plot of land, you are in with a chance, because at least you can get it surveyed. When a development is advertised the buyer assumes because houses are being offered for sale the geology must be ok, surely the Planning Dept wouldn't allow it otherwise? WRONG. I would like to create a case list for the CPAG, and offer and share as much information as possible which we have been able to obtain from our connection with the geological survey department. It is not possible to sue the Government...even though they deserve it. The Law MUST be changed to protect the consumer. The more cases, the more evidence, we could influence the situation.
Now the winter's coming we want to get our gas bottles filled so I was wondering where the best place to go is in Paphos. The cheapest I've found so far for refills is Orphanides supermarket near the firestation where they do refills for 5.70 a bottle. Does anybody know of anywhere cheaper???? Thanks.
Hello all, I need someone to come out and fix our pool. We live in Limassol and the chemicals are so off that we can't seem to get the right balance. The pool is now an awful green color. Please email me with your information and a quote for how much to have you come out and take a look! We have all the chemicals just need someone who knows what they are doing. Thanks, Rebekah
Hi Does anyone know how you change your swimming pool from Chlorine to Saltwater. My hubby has developed an allergy to the chlorine. I have been told you can do this without changing the actual water. Does anyone have any ideas or can point me in the right direction. Thank you Nicola
