It really puts you off buying abroad, who can you trust, even word of mouth must make it difficult for the remaining good guys in estate agency?
Well, being in a glass house, I can’t throw any stones, or make claim to be in the remainder, but you got that damn straight.
Good on The Olive Press though, the only Spanish paper for expats which tells the truth and reveals the scams. 🙄
Believe it not Angie, they actually had a pop at me once, back in their early days, most unfairly I thought because they didn’t at least contact me first, but we had a chat and I thought they were very nice people, and they just promised to contact me in future, which was fair enough – no need for libel lawyers, well hardly ever I think.
Having said that, will probably have a bum full of buckshot from them next week! 😉
They do seem to be quite fearless though, and my wife was actually enjoying reading their paper when she was over, which is a rarity for the English press we have. They are very brave but it will be a challenge to always stay responsible with it I suppose.
