I am writing this report on behalf of my brother who purchased a property
in Atlanta from Property4peanuts company number 07384189 and run by
Emma Cornah. The property was sold with outstanding taxes which amounted
to over $6000. His contract stated that the property would be sold free of
liens and he paid $1100 for legal fees.
Property4peasnuts would not contribute towards the taxes unless my brother
signed an agreement not to post blogs about the company. However, it is
in the public interest that my brothers experience with this company are
He made the final payment for the property in February 2010.
Although the money was paid to \'The Foreign Property Shop.com\'
company number 06027122. Incidentally they have applied for the company
to be struck off from companies house. Although the money was paid to
The Foreign Property Shop.com the contract had the seller as
Oleksandr Abramovych, a citizen of the Ukraine. The question is did
The Foreign Property Shop.com use my brothers money to purchase the
property from Oleksandr Abramovych and what is the connection between
him and The Foreign Property Shop.com and Property4peanuts. They said
that the seller was known to them.
The contract stated that the property would be refurbished and tenanted.
In fact the refurbishment was not completed and my brother has photos to
prove it. They have not provided any proof whatsoever that the refurbishment was
completed. Their excuse was that the tenant moved in so quick that there
wasn\'t time to take photos. If there was a tenant he did not receive any
rent payments as the rent money was deducted from the payment made towards
the overdue taxes.
Regarding the alleged tenant, there were no obvious signs of a tenant
existing, they disappeared after two months for no apparent reason.
At the same time the propety management company Solutions Enterprises
informed him that they no longer wished to be his management company.
Although my brother paid for the property in February 2010, he did not
receive the quit claim deed until July 2012. The date on the quit claim
deed was 10th August 2011 and that date had been amended from 10/8/2012.
Even if the date is to be believed it means the document was missing
fro a year. It also means that Oleksandr Abramovych was still the owner
up to that point. The address given for Oleksandr Abramovych on the quit
claim document is that of Property4peanuts, Foxwood, Chalky Road,
Stockbury, Kent ME9 7QR.
From the period of his payment February 2010 to 10th August 2011 the
property belonged to Oleksandr Abramovych. He did not have the property
managed and consequently it was vandalised and a vagrant was living there.
My brother used a agent in Atlanta to visit the property and take photos.
My brother continually pressed Propery4peanuts to provide him with the
title deeds. They claimed it took time whereas he phoned the court house
that deals with them and was told it takes two weeks. He also asked for
the name of the title company and was told it was SouthEast Title
Corporation, 1409 North Highland Avenue NE Atlanta, Georgia 30306. He
contacted the company and they said they did not handle the title they only
acted as a messenger service.
My brother challenges these companies to answer the specific questions
that has gone unanswered:
Explain their relationship with Oleksandr Abramovych. Why was he the
seller when the money was paid to The Foreign Property shop.com
Why did it take 29 months from the time of payment to the receipt of the
Provide proof that South East title did in fact handle the transfer or
provide the name of the company that did. They should have invoices from
the Title company.
Explain the whereabouts of the quit claim between 10th August 2011 and
12th July 2012.
Provide proof that the property was refurbished, it can be photos, names
of contractors, invoices etc.
I challenge Property4peanuts to answer the above questions, but I doubt
if they will.
If they think my brother was in any way responsible for this mess then
My brother paid a lot of money for a house that was supposed to be refurbished
and tenanted but wasn\'t. The title was not give to him in a timely manner, in
fact it was 29 months before he saw any documentation that showed him as
being owner. On the date of the quit claim deed the property was empty
and vandalised not refurbished and tenanted as per the contract.
When the property belonged to Oleksandr Abramovych it was not managed
and was completely trashed. It is in a wrecked state today and will cost
a lot of money to repair. It is over three years since the purchase, he
has lost lots of money, had enormous stress and still has a property
that is wrecked and accumulating taxes.
