Is the Cypriot CIP real estate investment limited to new properties?

Can I use resale properties for my citizenship application in Cyprus? Are there any special requirements on this type of investment?

    The real estate investment can be covered by resale properties. The required documents include the contract of sale, title deeds or proof of registration of the contract with the Lands and Survey Department, proof of payment of the agreed purchase price, a copy of the wire transfer to a Cypriot commercial banking institution in the name of the seller or the seller’s company, a declaration by the mortgage lender in the benefit of whom the purchased property or properties is mortgaged that will waive the mortgage, provided that the investor or the seller will pay the lender the amount con-scribed in the declaration (bank waiver).
