a. As the Republic of Cyprus is in the EU, wouldn’t it be easier for me to litigate in the UK court system? As the mortgage is in Cyprus, a claim against the bank can only be litigated in Cyprus by a Cyprus Lawyer who is registered with the Cyprus Bar Council.
b. Would it not strengthen my case to join an existing group litigation? The facts of each case MUST be considered separately and be defended by a Cyprus Lawyer in Court, in Cyprus. Most UK groups tend to be litigating on one technical aspect and where it is being advised that the claim will need to encompass more than one claim. An individual case will always carry more strength when presented and represented correctly.
