What exactly did they buy?
It looks as though a North Shore couple didn’t get what they expected when they bought a home at a mortgagee sale. It looks as though after they viewed the property a lot of the chattels were repossessed. Now trying to read between the lines of the article it looks as though this was expected but the state in which the house was left was not. The fact that it was a mortgagee sale should not give the vendor rights to leave the house in a damaged state. My guess is that the repossessing agents simply came in and took what was (rightfully) theirs but at the same time damaged property that they had no right to.
I would love to see the people front up who did the damage and explain themselves. I would also like the agent to take a more proactive role in helping the buyers – It seems from the comments that it was buyer beware:
Harcourts agent Jackie Mark said she sold the home and was disappointed about what had happened. But people should take care when buying mortgagee-sale properties, she warned.
I’m hoping that these were comments taken out of context. I’m not sure what care the buyers could have taken? Do you pay for security gaurds to monitor the property 24/7 form the minute you sign the agreement until you move in?
