There were six people due to visit Bulgaria - Only two arrived. The volcano in Iceland made sure of that. The people who did visit were Simon, who wants to open a writers retreat in Bulgaria (Good luck with that Simon)....
....and Brad !
I flew to Sofia and spent a few days with Simon viewing property and enjoying the capitals nightlife. Next stop was the Black Sea Coast and then on to Ruse to meet Brad. After sorting out the paperwork and Brads company formation there was very little left to do. My flight was delayed and without other viewings to arrange I spent a few days with Brad. I am sure Brad will not mind me telling you that he likes a beer or two! Brad works on an oil rig in Africa and was on leave for a few weeks. We spent the whole time drinking Rakia and had a wicked time. I still have the hangover to prove it (sic)! I think the only thing we had to eat in three days was a small tin of octopus and some cold chips.
On a more serious note. You may have gathered by now that the USP for Emerge (UK) ltd is that we encourage clients to seek legal advice. Why is this important? Buying a property abroad can be a minefield and a lawyers fee in Bulgaria is a fraction of the cost in the UK. Every time I travel to Bulgaria, I meet English people who have had to return to sort out problems. It tends to be a problem with the land not being regulated or the price has gone up etc etc. There are contact details for two English speaking lawyers on this site....use them, it will be money well spent and I am happy to recommend either of them.
Time to sign off but I would like to say thanks to all my customers. I really appreciate your support and work hard every day to make Emerge (UK) ltd the best property company in Bulgaria.
PS see you in about 6 weeks Brad. Next session in Sunny Beach as promised - Whose round is it anyway?
