..so well? I dropped a tidy amount to buy a place outside Sligo town and when I asked for a surveyors report the agent and the owner got upset. Demanded to know why and gave me all sorts of grief.
Found out the water supply was illegally taken from the local water scheme and had been for years. Property tax not paid, sewer fee not paid and outstanding liens attached to the property. Turns out the estate agent and the solicitor knew about the problems and chose to try to guilt trip me into closing on the place by telling me over and over again how "poor" the sellers were and that the issues were not big ones..ete. etc. etc.
This is the 3rd time I have run up against this type of B*LLS*IT when trying to buy a home here.
As god is my witness it really seems that estate agents and solicitors go to school to learn how to lie like a pro. No wonder Ireland is in such a bad financial state. My wife asked me today why in h*ll did we ever move back to the land of liers and thieves?
I had no reply then to hang my head in shame. The only thing I could do is walk away from the sale and get my cash back.
