The risk of buying an illegally built house 1/2
The following story begins in 2004.Virginie Eynaud, 24, works in a real estate agency in Val-de-Marne, which rents apartments to individuals.
"All day long I heard it said that it was good to build up a heritage, she says, today, so I started."
“When I was a child, my family often took me to Normandy, near Fécamp (Seine-Maritime); during our hikes, we had spotted a small house, along a path dependent on Malleville-les-Grès, a village of a hundred inhabitants.In 2004, I saw that it was for sale, at a price of 85,000 euros.It was relatively cheap, for a three-room house with a mezzanine, which did not require any work, so I decided to buy it."
Virginie takes out a loan of 85,000 euros over twenty years from Société Générale.The sale is scheduled to take place on June 25, 2004, at the study of Me Eric Laidebeur, notary chosen by the owner, in the presence of the latter, who must come expressly from the North of France, but also from Me Didier Martzloff, notary chosen by Virginie Eynaud, to assist her during the transaction, and, of course, from the buyer, who came from Val-de-Marne In fact, when the two women arrive, the notaries tell them that it is not possible to sign the authentic deed of sale, as Société Générale has not yet released the funds.In order not to have to return, Virginie entrusts a power to the notary's clerk, who will proceed in her name with the sale, when the money has reached the office, on June 29.
