It's normal when dealing with any overseas anything to get photo copies of documents notorised as it's easy to forge info on a copy, not normally required on original documents.

We have decided to change to another agent as this morning we tried to speak with the person dealing with our property and she wasn't available.  My husband asked if the person who answered the phone could pass on a message but was told "No, I work in the Lettings Department".    With regard to the link kindly sent to me about someone managing to sell a house that they didn't own, it would seem that the fault would like with existing information not being verified properly.
