We bought the old coach house from Kevin claydon and his company cbp ltd in December 2010 we paid by cash into his wives account.

We told him at the time that I had my own company already set up in Bulgaria all seemed well at first and we exchanged loads of emails and formulated the idea of turning the old coach house into a bar restaurant and a small hotel.

We went over to see the coach house in march and stayed at his home in shredno gradishtie we went to the coach house most days and work was underway he gave me all the papers and documents for the house signed by him and the skitza and the pre lim contract signed by him and me on his company papers and his company stamp.

We returned to the uk he was sending us pics and telling us all about the work I did keep on asking him about planning permission and licenses that we would need I was always told don’t worry everything will be sorted.

A few months passed and we went over again and stayed at the coach house this time as we had had beds and other items shipped over from the UK so I viewed it as a camping holiday.

While we were there we bought 4 complete showers and 14 air cons and they was stored in the coach house with the rest of the items that had been delivered.

When we returned to the uk a couple of weeks passed and we was asking for updates and we was not happy with the amount of work that was been done we then employed our lawyer to sort out the transfer off the property to my company claydon told my lawyer that he was off on holiday while I was in Bulgaria so the transfer could not take place.

On entering my property 7 air cons was missing with no sign of break in as all was locked up only 2 people had the keys me and claydon.

I went to Plovdiv to see my lawyer I changed the locks on the property and secured the property as best as I could

I posted a set of keys to my lawyers office in Plovdiv for the new set off builders that I had lined up to do a site visit mekotek builders went to my lawyers office for the keys and went to the property but claydon had changed the locks to my property by breaking into it. So mekotek builders could not do the site survey.

Claydon was given till the 20th September to sign the property over he was served with the papers by my lawyer in Plovdiv and yes you guessed he never turned up.

Now we are waiting for the court date to be sorted out and all the papers have been lodged in to the court system by my lawyer.

We then find out that claydon has since sold my property to another brit couple and they have been carrying out repairs on the building and are living in the property so his deception continues apart from my lawyer he has been reported to the bulgarian embassy and i have wrote to the pm in the uk
