Hi all,

New to this forum.

I am looking at buying a property in Amandelara on the east coast, has anyone any comments, I found the property via a Comapny called Damatt Property.

Does anyone have words on this Company or the area.

Only some very general comments - the nature of which are also expressed in the various different parts of this forum generally....

1. Don't contemplate signing till you see it being built
(some promised sites havn't even started!)
2. Ensure that you have a reputable lawyer (not easy?).
We were lucky.
3. Try to buy locally (estate agents) as all these companies take big cuts
(As we found when we had our mortgage valuation compared
with the price!!) Many offer the same properties!
4. Get absolutely everything written into the contract! Our property
agent eMailed us information which we subsequently found to be
untrue (and unenforceable). If they agree a kitchen, or a second sink,
or to finish the land/drive in a specific way ~ have it in the contract!!!
5. Dates and penalties in the contract.
6. Who pays the insurance extension if the building overruns...
7. What's it like to get there all year round? (The 'Ryanair have cancelled
the flights' scenario). Fly, train, drive....

Everyone has had varying degrees of all of these issues.

Some of the salespeople are really nice, like your best friend, and will agree to the earth... then move on! We have had seven from initial signing! (and the original firm went into recievership!)

Hi,

Thanks for your comments, from what I have seen the shell is done and they say that the property will be completed within 3 months from signing contract. I will take on board you thoughts about getting things written into the contract shoud I go ahead. I will be looking again at the property and the area.

What I dont understand is why are there not more agents working in this area or is it early days for this side of Italy.

Have you heard of Damatt Property?
