Sirs ,Re.your response to my enquiry,'it swas the purchase of the property 29a St,Georges Road Brightonfor £176,ooo,is this the info you required?
In the above transaction ,I gave the father of the seller, a cheque drawn on my account at Lloyds TSB which they cashed, the proof that I gave them the money ,nothing else was done in writing.
I knew the seller personally ,I thought as a friend/mate I lived in the upstairs appartment, over the one he wished to sell,we were always on good terms ,in fact with regard, to the Building Cover on the property,I always settled it ,with the Insurance Brokers,"Rias" and he always sent me his share ,of 40%. Which had been agreed by our lawyers,when I purchased ,the upstairs flat.
This ,I think,shows a trusting and amicable relationship and perhaps why I behaved so foolishly by giving such a large deposit, sincerely T.D.G.
