1. Can I buy on credit / installment plans and what are the conditions?

If you buy a house that is under construction, the developer offers instalements over the construction period (4-5 tranches of 20-30%). Some builders offer loans from 3 to 6 and even up to 10 years. Interest rates range between 10-12% per annum.

2. Do I need to get a residence permit, and if so, how can I do?

Yes, you will need to apply for accommodation in Northern Cyprus. This is usually a formality, but it needs to be done. At the entrance to the island, EU citizens are automatically granted a tourist visa for 3 months, others - from 5 to 30 days (depending on the date of the return ticket), and if you decide to extend my stay, you must contact the Immigration Service for a temporary residence permit. This process can take time and will require walking through the resort, but it is necessary. We can also recommend a company that will guide you through the entire process and make everything much easier for a modest fee.

3. How big is a donum of land?

400ft² or 1,338m². Land measurements are generally calculated in donums, evleks and feet. One donums = four evleks, 1 evlek = 3,600ft² 
A third of an acre or 14,400ft²
