This story concerns a British lady who was born in Greece and bought a piece of land in Artemis, East Attica in order to build a holiday home. Unfortunately she became disabled and could not travel to Greece so decided to sell the land. Upon enquiring at the local town hall she spoke to various people, all of whom wanted to help her but one needed her power of attorney so he could act for her, another wanted to build a house cheaply for her and a further person told her the land was on the "city plan" but the manager of the town hall refused to sign the necessary document because allegedly he knew the neighbours who wanted the land for nothing. Although the land was offered for sale, anyone coming to view was told by the neighbours they owned it. A British solicitor sent a letter to these people warning them to stop, but they ignored it. Various people were contacted including the Greek Ombudsman and the Prime Minister, but the only thing we were told was to get a solicitor. The last straw was in a recent telephone call from the mayor of Artemis saying "you will never get your land". Because the person owning the land is a pensioner and cannot afford to pay 750 euros in advance with no guarantee of success, she cannot engage a Greek solicitor. She cannot go to Greece to see what is happening and no-one wants to help her unless they receive a hand-out. Apparently Greece is trying to encourage people to invest in land. That is fine if you don't want to sell it and if you understand the Greek language, otherwise don't bother it's not worth all the hassle.
