Re: Re: Overseas property is the Wild West



Fraudsters will always be with us; buyers in a foreign country must always find an independent lawyer; ie not tied to the friendly estate agent, developers etc…. i realise most agents don’t have a second agenda when recommending their tame lawyer (apart from a speedy completion and protection of fees) but all over the world the lawyer must be totally independent…………… What is quite sad is that all these fraudsters are still around and have not been prosecuted – even the local English language papers never mentioned the going ons…… there is a great hush up …. too much to lose i guess!!!! 🙁 🙁
