A relative of mine may have been scammed by way of a property investment fraud. They were invited to purchase a share of a villa in spain some years ago and paid a sizeable deposit. Shortly after, the supposed property owner disappeared becoming uncontactable for some years until a search discovered a new UK address and he was contacted requeting the deposit be returned. He has stated this cannot be complied with as he was victim to the property scam. my question is simply this. Can we obtain the historic details of a certain property (we have the full address in Spain) and its ownership for at least the preceding 10 years? We would be grateful for any information you think may help.
