Just to let you know ladies we have decided not to proceed on that particular complex and will look elsewhere.
To clarify a few things:-
We know the area well having lived there for 15 years and it was me, in fact, that told her about these houses. They are bank repossessions and handled differently from other property sales in Spain.
She got her act together very quickly and after 3 weeks is almost at the point of completion on her original purchase. She had never viewed the house we were buying, just liked the position better, as it was not available when she started the process.
She professed herself delighted when we told her we were also buying there. It was only when she found out which house it was that things changed and she did the dirty on us.
She is now going ahead with the purchase of the house we wanted and I am not prepared to get into a contract race that she will inevitably win as she is on the doorstep.
We will put it down to experience. In a couple of days I will let her know exactly what I think of her and then forget it and her.
Gransnet is always a mine of good advice.
