I received a bill for my property with the previous owner’s details on, dated before I purchase the property. After going to the Suma office and giving them all the necessary paperwork to say I now own the house. I paid my bill, in my name for the period I have owned the house.
The women in the Suma said if they cannot find the previous owners I maybe liable for the bill. The previous owners live in the UK and have since divorced, so I doubt they will have any luck there even it they bothered to find them.
I have now received another bill in the previous owners name, for the period before I owned the house. I realise the Abogado probably didn't do their job properly by not unearthing any previous debts on the property before my purchase, I doubt if they will help me at this stage.
Can anyone tell me, am I liable for this bill? Will I have to pay on the other persons name? Is it wise to just ignore it after all in theory I have opened someone else’s mail?
