EU Court Rules for Demolition of Northern Cypriot Property

Brace yourself if you've bought a property in Northern Cyprus - a recent ruling by the European Court of Justice means that thousands of property owners may be in danger of losing their homes in the occupied areas of Northern Cyprus, or at least being liable to pay compensation.

The court upheld a previous ruling ordering a U.K. couple, Linda and David Orams, to demolish their house in Northern Cyprus.

It is unlikely that the ruling will be enacted because the land is under Turkish Cypriot control, but it means that the plaintiff, Mr. Apostolides, can now pursue a claim for compensation from the Orams through the UK courts.
