Oh dear, Iain
Unfortunately the idea of the pylon being moved underground was never
going to happen. (Salesmens plot to get you to part with your hard earned money). It was one reason we decided against Lo Crispin not far from where we bought. (I must be careful what I say as we have at least two friends who live/bought there who have a pylon very close to their properties, who obviously don't feel as we would feel with one so
close by). From our front (where we were looking on Lo Crispin) we had a pylon slightly sited to one side nearby & these things are HUGE (& in our face) & we, too, were told they were going to taken down in two years & cables routed underground. Now common sense told us that, as roads had been put in & some villas had already been built, this was not
going to happen & that was 2004
! Pylons are still
there & agents still
saying, they're going !
Unfortunately, all this is not what you want to hear but I think you know you're stuck. If you don't complete you'll lose your 65,000€ plus maybe get stung for more. The builder is well aware no one else will want to buy the property with a pylon sited in the position as it is.
I feel bad for you.This message was last edited by morerosado on 7/31/2008.
