There are also many Bulgarians, Mayors included, who would be willing to sell their grandmothers to naive Brits, or to anyone else who comes up with the money! Yes, Mayors can be useful, but if I were you I would shop around. There are many decent estate agents in Bulgaria, without having to resort to ebay, but don't automatically assume that all Mayors are honest. Or anyone else, come to that! Caveat emptor - let the buyer beware.OldHolborn wrote:ashlar wrote:I guess you don't speak Bulgarian, so when it all goes pear shaped who will be to blame.
Sounds like a recipe for disaster
No, I don't speak Bulgarian, just English, German and French. Hence I will hire a translator, not the bloke who speaks a little bit of German or English and owes the Mayor money.
I am well aware how Mayors become elected and how much "influence" they can exert when required to. Let's just say he will know it is in his interest to keep the deal clean
Suffice to say that I would rather trust a local than "Keith" from Ebay who burned his bridges to the UK, has nowhere else to run to and will do anything to anyone to raise the necessary funds to eat this winter. Just from these forums alone, it would appear there are plenty like Keith, ready to sell their grandmothers to niaive Brits. I may be wrong of course, but Bulgaria does have a reputation of being a "last chance saloon" for those who could not hack legitimate business in the UK or are *cough* "unwelcome" on the Costa Brava.
I'll say no more
Must admit, I'm amused by the amount of "property agents" advising me to buy through "property agents".
