    Hi everyone,
    Just thought I'd share an experience that my wife and I have just gone through.

    A while ago we decided to buy a plot of land and build a house. we searched around and eventually found a plot of land of 1000 sqm on a really nice, terraced "lotissement" just outside the town of Pezenas.

    The plot was being sold by a development company based in Montpellier called "Sopha Amenagement".

    We were able to haggle a bit of the price and eventually signed a contract subject to the sale of our house.

    Interestingly, the sales contract that the developers drew up was a promise for them to sell rather than a promise for us to buy! This gave us a bit more of a safety net.

    Anyway, to cut a long story short, we lost our buyer shortly afterwards and unfortunately had to pull out of buying the land.

    We sent our registered letter to Sopha as required and within a week we had a letter sent back confirming our withdrawel and enclosing our deposit cheque.

    Obviously we were very disappointed to have to pull out of the purchase, but I just wanted to let you all know that as far as I'm concerned, Sopha Amenagement acted very professionally all the way through and I would have no hesitation in buying from them again.
    Cheers
