Re: Land Registry (Cadastre)

Hello Riff, As far as I know the new land registry is being done area by area through the whole of Greece . Where I live in the far East of Crete it was started in 2019 . There is a web site that will tell you what you need to do and when you need to start the process.

Re: Lockdown Lifted

Well spotted , that statue is Eric Morecambe and it is on the sea front at Morecambe I used to live near there in Lancaster before we moved to Crete.

Re: Withdrawal agreement and residence
