Wish we could find a 'plot swap'! We have a plot of land in South Cyprus (Greek) that we would love to sell or failing that, exchange for something in France. So, I would wecome any advice from others who may have done similar.

It's treated as a sale and all necessary government fees will have to be paid.

We were already advertised privately house for sale they came to view really liked the house but still had to sell theres we approched them to a swap because they were in the area we were looking at anyway and it just seemed a logical thing to do where they buy ours and we buys theres.But the hurdle is to know how we do this.Hence why im asking if anyone has done it.There are swap sites that you can advertise on and they say its simple providing both you and the other person involved comes to an agreement.There House is more expensive then ours so we have to put quite abit of cash towards it.

I'd like to know how you found these people.  Did you advertise on a house swap website?
