Have just read a posting on another site ( don’t know if I am allowed to put web address on here ) pertaining to a possible resale scam.
Apparently the British vendors managed to secure 150,000€ debt on their property only a few days before sale completed.
Everyone unaware of problem until debt collectors called.
Apparently all legal searches were done prior to signing at the notories.
It seems the checks were not done properly. In the transactions I have been involved in the Notary has requested details from the Land Registry, including any pending documents to be registered, on the actual day of signing to ensure there are no unforeseeen matters such as that described. It would appear the vendors have possibly acted in a very dubious manner.
