Defrauded twice over sale of wooden house

Source: EFE - Thu 24th Feb 2011

The Guardia Civil have arrested an un-named Spanish man for allegedly defrauding the buyers of a wooden house.

The 50 year old Andalucian man sold the prefabricated wooden property to the two German nationals in 2007, for the sum of €38,500 , after allegedly advising them that they did not require planning permission to erect the property on their land.

Soon after buying and erecting the property the couple received written notification from their local Ayuntamiento, stating how the property could not be legalised without a licence and that legal proceedings had been filed against them.

The Guardia released a statement yesterday, which said how after the couple informed the salesman of what had happened, he agreed to buy back the property. A contract was drawn up, signed by both parties involved last year, agreeing that if the property was not sold within 12 months it would be returned to the purchasers. If he managed to sell the property he would pay the original buyers €25'000.

No news had been forthcoming by the end of the year, and upon making enquiries the couple learned that the property had indeed been sold, but that the business was no longer operational. The Guardia succeeded in tracking the salesman down and are charging him with fraud.
