I think this is awful and cannot believe this is happening to people. But I do wonder why people don’t purchase homes in spain and use lawyers like we do in the uk. I moved 4 times in spain and always had a laywer as I would do in the uk. But for some reason people tend to think that the notario is enough! My lawyer told me she can’t believe the amount of people who purchase in Spain, including Spaniards! who don’t bother getting a laywer, but we would not dream of doing this in the uk. And if these people did use a laywer then they should take him to the cleaners!
