Proving your identity
Dear Sir, I am trying to sell my holiday home, and I have found a buyer from Belgium.
He appointed a lawyer to act for him, and I used my usual one. The contract was signed and the deposit paid. No problems up to here.
When we went to the notary’s office for completion of the sale, the notary said that I wasn’t the legal owner of the property and therefore the sale deeds could not be signed.
The problem is that I bought the property when I was single, and I have now been married for over 10 years and my surname is different to the one used when I purchased the property. I don’t know what to do.
I imagine there are many more people in the same situation.
