Is your Greek property on forestland

first_imgThe Greek Government has recently introduced NEW forest maps for 33 different areas throughout Greece including the Prefectures of Arcadia, Laconia, Messenia, Chios and Kerkira just to name a few. The purpose of developing forestry maps is to accurately record forests and forestland throughout the country. Maps are formed by recording existing forests and forestland, areas that were once deforested and/or altered and areas that were reforested and/or forested in the meantime. These maps are necessary for the Greek Government not only to protect its natural environment, but also to secure property rights and ownership titles in cooperation with the Hellenic Cadastre.How do I protect my Greek property? Check your property. Owners can verify if their Greek property has been identified as forest or non-forestland by navigating the search engine of the Hellenic Cadastre. Don’t be surprised if your patriko or olive grove in your hometown village has been identified as forestry land like my mother’s has in the rural area of Arcadia. If your property has been falsely identified as forestland whereas it is not, you are lawfully entitled to submit objections for this property. As the law stands up-to-date, applications for objections are filed 15 days after the issuing of the specific forest map of interest. The deadline is 60 days after that date for Greek citizens and 80 days for owners residing abroad. To properly submit your objections, you will need an accurate and updated land survey, an issue we have stressed on repeatedly in past newsletters, in our Article Series first published in 2014 and our first Greek Property U.S. Workshops in 2014 in Chicago. *Katerina Sirouni is an Architect and Greek Property Manager Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagramlast_img read more

Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires

first_img Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires Grace expects Greinke trade to have emotional impact “With Carson and Jermaine…they didn’t really say much going in, but we knew that it was going to be a big win for them, as well as for us,” Nelson said.And a big win it was, moving the Cardinals to 8-2 on the season and maintaining their three-game lead in the NFC West. None of it would have happened without Nelson’s contributions, but the fifth-round pick is not content with just that game.“It feels good, but at the end of the day we still got a long season to go,” he said. – / 31 Derrick Hall satisfied with D-backs’ buying and selling Arizona Cardinals wide receiver J.J.

The 5: Takeaways from the Coyotes’ introduction of Alex Meruelo Highlighted by a 64-yard touchdown reception, the rookie out of Alabama-Birmingham led the Cardinals in receiving yards in their 34-31 win over the Cincinnati Bengals on Sunday.Buried in the depth chart behind proven veterans, Nelson hadn’t seen the field much before Sunday’s game. But as a rookie, that didn’t discourage him.“We’re seven deep. We have a lot of great guys. I feel like we have one of the best receiving cores, if not the best receiving core in the NFL. I’m a rookie so I’m just sitting back and waiting my turn,” Nelson said.Nelson didn’t know that he’d even see the field against the Bengals until head coach Bruce Arians told him that Michael Floyd would be inactive.“This week coach came to me and said that Mike was going to be out, I told him those were some big shoes to fill. Mike balled out this season and he balled out at Seattle. So I just tried to come out and contribute the best way I can on Sunday,” Nelson said.It’s safe to say that Nelson, who got a game ball following his performance against the Bengals, did just that.Nelson said that he wanted to play well for his teammates — particularly Carson Palmer and Jermaine Gresham, who are former Bengals. Putting up 142 yards and one touchdown against one of the best teams in football is an impressive feat. Doing that in just your third career game? Even more impressive.But, Arizona Cardinals wide receiver J.J. Nelson isn’t going to let it get to his head.“I’m the type of guy, you know, I just stay level-headed, I’m going to practice the same way whether it’s on scout team or with the regular O,” Nelson told Bickley and Marotta on Arizona Sports 98.7 FM on Monday. “It’s still the same to me.”last_img read more
