Therefore, they see the sale through to the end…not walk away once their pockets are lined. Having said that, the actions of the agents mentioned in the BBC report is appalling and I am sure this will have an effect on their business. As for getting the BBC to go undercover in Spain…where would they start? 😉 Author Posts The forum ‘Real Estate Topics, News & Discussion’ is closed to new topics and replies.
