A woman from Limassol is suing her mother over a house and grounds worth over €500,000, after the elderly woman decided to donate them to the Cyprus Association of Cancer Patients and Friends (PASYKAF).
Daily Politis reported that mother and daughter had a falling out last year, following the mother’s decision to donate the estate –located in the mountainous area of the Limassol district – to the anti-cancer charity.
The daughter took the case to court and obtained an injunction to stop PASYKAF from doing anything with the house.
She claims her mother was not of sound mind when she decided to donate the estate and that the house was rightfully hers because she paid for an extensive renovation ten years ago.
The mother on the other hand presented the court with a doctor’s certificate validating her mental health and argued that she bought the estate in 1975 and that all renovation work was paid by her.
The court lifted the injunction two weeks ago, transferring the estate back to PASYKAF. The daughter will now file a suit against her mother.
PASYKAF’s Nicolas Phillipou told the Cyprus Mail that the cancer patients’ NGO planned to build a rehabilitation centre on the estate.
“That was our plan when the woman visited our offices last year and transferred the deed to the NGO. We weren’t aware of any complications before we received the court order. Now that this matter is resolved we are moving ahead with our plan. If something changes along the way we will comply with the court’s decision. PASYKAF respects the will of the donor,” he said.
