Ap­pli­ca­tions dead­line ex­tended

Kathimerini English - - Front Page -

The dead­line for the scheme that al­lows home­own­ers to pay a one-off fee to pro­tect il­le­gally al­tered parts of their prop­er­ties, known as imiy­paithrioi, for the next 40 years has been ex­tended un­til the end of Oc­to­ber, the En­vi­ron­ment Min­istry said yes­ter­day. Prop­erty own­ers had been asked to sub­mit their ap­pli­ca­tions by the end of this month but be­cause of the high de­mand, the gov­ern­ment has de­cided to ex­tend the dead­line a sec­ond time. So far, just over 618,000 ap­pli­ca­tions have been sub­mit­ted and more than 300 mil­lion eu­ros has been raised for the pub­lic cof­fers. En­vi­ron­ment Min­is­ter Gior­gos Pa­pa­con­stanti­nou said that he would em­ploy a sim­i­lar scheme for homes built with­out per­mits.
