€100 lost to property agent

I had agreed €50 a month to sell my foreign property. I terminated my business with the company but €100 has been taken since last March from my Laser. I get plenty of soft talk but no refund. Ed.

Hi Ed.  I presume you are dealing with an overseas property in this sale and my advice is to contact your Laser provider and stop this payment immediately.

 

As regards getting a refund of the €100, I would say the chances of your getting €100 back in an economical way would be slim because you would have to litigate the case in a foreign country with foreign laws, in a foreign language and with foreign lawyers.

 

If, on the other hand the agent is based in Ireland, take him or her to the Small Claims Court. www.courts.ie
