Selling a property in Limassol from the UK

Hi

I am enquiring on behalf of my wife. Her Cypriot mother lives with us in North London. Herself and her brother wish to sell their apartment in Limassol. My wife will need to obtain Power of Attorney for herself to deal with this in Cyprus. I assume this will need to be notarised here and verified by the High Commission in London before sending on. She will also need to obtain POA for a solicitor to act on her behalf out there for the sale as it is highly unlikely she will be obtain time off from work to travel out there to deal with the sale. Then of course there will be Capital Gains Tax in both countries to consider afterwards. Hence I am writing in case anyone might be able to recommend a London based solicitor for handling this (apologies if this is the wrong platform for this sort of enquiry)?

With many thanks

    I sold a property in Larnaca a couple of years ago and can certainly recommend a Cyprus based firm of solicitors who I was happy with. The POA process is straightforward.
