Why did our useless lawyers in Marbella, not inform us of the protracted time scale between the date of completion & the date of the Bank Guarantee. Had we known of this discrepancy we would not have signed the contract, unless the dates were synchronised.

well doesnt that take us back to Mark and Pauls earlier postings about the lawyers being in cahoots with the agents??

I heard a rumour (allegedly) of course that some lawyers split their commission with estate agents who refer customers to them!! otherwise they don’t get any British customers – others are effectively “inhouse” lawyers for big agencies.

I suspect thats what happened to you, it they had acted ethically you would not have signed
