The Immovable Property Commission (IPC)was set up in 2005 to deal with claims and compensation relating to land and/or property in the TRNC that was owned by Greek Cypriots prior to July 1974.  The IPC is approved by the European Court of Human Rights and has been in full operation since March 2006.

The Immovable Property Commission has the power to order restitution (reinstatement of the property to the applicant), exchange (offering an alternative property to the applicant) or compensation for the property.

It can also order compensation for loss of use and non-pecuniary damages, and seeks to satisfy legitimate claims without prejudice to the rights of the Turkish Cypriot community.

At Erginel Law, we have helped a number of Greek Cypriots to apply to the IPC and our reputation for independence and fairness ensures that all parties are represented in a professional manner.

See the article by Taner Erginel for further information on the IPC.
