Just a side note the area of land is based on build footprint so you can build up to 7m in most cases although each municipality has its own interpritation but 1000euros is well over will confim and PM you later this week

Thanks, this is really kind of you. We have been so messed about by our Estate agent. They lost us our first house through unprofessionalism. This is the second time we have travelled to Sofia which cost us a lot of money. The first time after agreeing to buy a house, on returning home they e-mailed us to say someone had offered more. It cost us a lot of money to travel to Sofia the second time and the addition of these costs really upset us. When we were presented with the final cost we expressed our feelings that they were too high but the Agent replied that 'you English come to Bulgaria for the cheap living but some things are not as cheap as you want'. We love the country and want to spend our retirement there and take our pension with us but we are having such bad experiences that we are now thinking of selling the land and staying in England.
I am not exagerating I have all the corespondence showing the events.
Regards

Hi,iam very sorry that u have been experiencing so many problems.I started my project two years ago and we are just about to start building.It is most important that you find one person who can coordinate all of the different aspects for you so there is control ie legal,design and building.Bulgarians are very helpful and genuine people so they tend to work together on one project together.If you go to different sources yourself the left hand will not know what the right is doing.d Do not start the project if it is not going to flow from start to completion.The reason for this is now there is so much building than a year ago so no-one wants to be jumping around from one project to another when time is money.At the end of last year the government passed new law stating minimum charge for architects would be 12euros per m2 in addition demand for their service far exceeds supply. I was in samokov last november to meet with uk/bg developer who might be able to help,i will try to find his details.I now face same problem because all my contacts are on the coast and my next project is in pamporovo so if any one else has contacts in this area i would appreciate an introduction.

Allandy,

I have emailed you for details of your architect. One I currently have far too slow and does not respond to emails. I have a lot of properties to renovate and need someone I can rely on.

DJVarna - how far afield do you work? Stara Zagora area too far?

Rachel
