My wife and I paid for a 3 bedroom flat sometimes January, the property lawyer said we would only be able to take possession by February ending or March.
February came no job was done on the property, after complaining bitterly February ending he promised March with 1st to 31st.
As I type my wife & I are yet to take possession, I called the property lawyer and he was rude and start giving another stories and suddenly the apartment we paid for is now going for a 100k higher which was not disclosed.
Can we get a full refund since we can’t take possession since January we made payment?.
Note property is a new block of flats. Kindly advise on next action to take.
Thank you for contacting us. Unfortunately there is only limited information that we can provide about what steps we can take as we have not seen any agreement you would have signed with the agent/landlord on the property. However from a broad legal perspective, you should be able to demand a refund of your payment if the original agreement on the basis of the delay and on the basis of this additional 100,000 which you have been asked to pay.
