Swiss Franc Mortgages in Cyprus

It is estimated that thousands of purchasers of immovable property in Cyprus from 2006 onwards may have been adversely affected by being advised by their Cypriot bank - in order to fund their purchase in Cyprus - to take a housing loan in the Swiss Franc denomination (CHF).

As a result these purchasers have seen their Swiss Franc loan repayments increase in some instances by as much as four times the original monthly projections given to them at the time of the loan being taken.

Unable to service the ever increasing instalments, the purchasers have found themselves in direct conflict with the banks in Cyprus as financial implications have forced the majority of clients to cease payments of the loans; with all of the legal consequences that have followed.

We spoke with one of our clients about his experiences and his journey to a successful resolution.

As one of the first legal firms to start fighting the cases on their merit in Cyprus courts - and not seeking to frustrate and/or challenge Writs and their UK service in order to delay the legal process.

We now have behind us many years of experience dealing with hundreds of clients who bought immovable properties in Cyprus. While others have created confusion for purchasers we continue weekly to achieve successful settlements for clients who have handed their property back to the Bank and continued their life free from any stress or fear for their future. We continue also to reach settlements weekly with all of the Banks in Cyprus where our clients have successfully restructured their existing Loans or paid off their existing Loans with significant discounts; and can also carry on with their lives free from stress and in enjoyment of their properties in Cyprus.

If you are encountering issues in Cyprus with a foreign currency loan and don’t know where to turn, or if you are unsure about the legal guidance or strategy being followed by your current legal advisers, we continue to offer a no-cost no obligation initial review of a client’s documentation in order to assess the merits of their claims prior to incurring any legal costs.
