I didn’t think things could get worse and then friends of ours said that they had seen our house for sale in the local newspaper. It is not on the market due to legality issues, ie no LFO as the developer didn’t get permissions etc.
After some investigating, it was indeed found to be our house, put on the market with a spanish estate agent, by our developer/neighbour!!
The estate agent has said that she is a bit sloppy when checking correct photos however I’m not fooled. The picture is the original one we saw from the Spanish neighbour) about 2 and a half years ago. If the EA was doing a proper job for them, they would have taken a new photo.
May be our neighbour was trying to provoke an instant reaction from us. They are the ones who have been trying to extort money out of us for an illegal electricity supply. We have refused and been told by the electricity company that we were right to do so.
There are now plans in the pipeline to get this resolved with the EA, however if all else fails, a little legal muscle may be required.
Is this normal for Spain?
