Couple to Supreme Court
PENSIONERS Rosalie Papp and Jozsef Pall appear to be headed for the Supreme Court on May 31 after the failure of their efforts to remove an occupant from their Boambee house.
The couple accepted an offer of $620,000 for their house and two acres of land at 142 Ayrshire Park Drive when they put it on the market in May 2009.
The buyer, Theo Sourios, paid a $25,000 deposit, undertook to pay rent until the end of the six-month settlement date in November 2009 and moved in.
In October 2009, although he did not own the house, Mr Sourios listed it for sale. Prospective buyers have said the initial price asked by the agent was $900,000, although this was later reduced to $840,000.
Ms Papp and Mr Pall were overseas visiting Ms Pall’s sick 91- year-old mother in Hungary and only found out their home of 10 years had been put on the market again when Mrs Pall’s daughter found it on the internet.
“My advice now is no matter what they say, do not let someone who wants to buy your home into the house until the sale is complete,” Ms Pall said.
“We were too trusting.”
