Banks stepping up foreclosures

Another 14 auctions are planned in Limassol from August 30 to September 5  that include a house for €310,000, a flat for  €126,400, a plot of land in Platres for  €692,000 and a number of fields.

In Larnaca, there are 21 auctions planned from August 24 to September 7 that include a number of apartments as well as plots of land and 10 fields.

Twenty auctions have been announced for Paphos from August 28 to September 12, including two vineyards and a commercial property in Polis for €558,400.

Famagusta has one auction scheduled for a field for  €170,000.

According to the Central Bank notifications for foreclosure have been sent for 5,373 properties in the period from the third quarter of 2015 to the first quarter of 2018.
