A Scottish grandmother, at the age of 66, is being kicked out of her own home…by her son.
Flora Dempster claims she has lost almost £200,000 after a bitter row with Stuart Dodds turned into a nine-year legal fight over the ownership of her Moray bungalow.
Mrs Dodds had used her son as a guarantor for the property. She then went on to say that after he moved to America he became hungry for money and decided to put the house on the market. Her son Mr Dodds, claimed half the value of his mothers home in West Park in 2004.
The dispute began in 1999 after he claimed he was entitled to 50% of the property as he had acted as the guarantor to allow his mother to buy out her former husband’s share of the property. The home was then put on to the property market yet Mrs Dodds claims that her son had not invested a penny in the property and had no rights to it.
Mrs Dodds had to concede defeat after spending £80,000 on legal bills alone.

There is a new trend in the property market at the moment for companies to buy property direct from owners and quickly, without hassle and for cash. The only real drawback is they offer less than the market value for the property, but many people in certain situations accept this as they need the sale to be completed quickly.

The companies will usually make you a cash offer within days of viewing the property. They will cover legal fees and using them in the first place will eliminate estate agent fees you would normally have to pay. The whole process is more discreet as you do not have to display a “for sale” sign in front of your house for weeks or months that can lead to unwanted attention.
There is also a sell and rent back option that a lot of firms offer that still allow you to get cash to pay off debts but still will then let you rent back your property from them at local rates, which is a great option if you do not want to leave the area.
Alternative quick property sales are not for everyone, but for the people who need to move quickly and need cash they are a god send.
