1 You were charged more for the apartment than the original contract?
2 You had to pay on the purchase?
3 Were the escribano's fees unknown to you when you "bought" the apartment...or higher than quoted?
4 Do you know if only the buyer pays the escribano a fee or does the seller also pay?
1 I was not charged more for the appartment, but I was hit with bills that I still have not established what they were for, this is still being investigated.
2 sorry I do not understand the question.
3 I did not know, despite constant requests, how much he would charge until two days before. Luckily I managed to borrow some money from friends.
4 I think both the buyer and seller have to pay, but you would be better asking someone more qualified.
and finally Pericles is dead right about escribanos not knowing what they are doing, that is until they hit you with a bill.
