28 January, 11:44

(ANSAmed) - ATHENS, JANUARY 28 - Just over half of Greek homeowners say they will not be able to pay all their property taxes this year, according to a new poll, daily Kathimerini reports. The Kapa Research survey for the Hellenic Property Federation (POMIDA) found that of 1,414 people questioned, 54% said they would not have enough money to cover the cost of a range of property taxes that have to be paid in 2013. Just under 50% said they doubted whether they would be able to meet their mortgage repayments this year, while about 25% are already falling behind in their monthly payments. Regarding landlords who rent out their properties, 82.7% said that they are losing money from their real estate assets rather than making a profit.

Property taxes were doubled by former Finance minister Evangelos Venizelos, now head of the PASOK Socialist party that is a partner in Prime Minister Antonis Samaras' coalition government.
