What would you advise?
In January I received the first cheque for rental of my newly built Corsican holiday apartment from the managers. I banked it, knowing it could take up to 8 weeks to process. By April, the cheque still had not cleared & I queried this with the bank. They claimed to have presented the cheque to the French bank 3 times. on the first occasion the French bank refused payment saying the cheque had been cancelled. On the next 2 occasions the cheque was refused without explanation. I contacted the managers & after several failed attempts at electronic transfer with various excuses for failure, we managed to get the money sent to an account I held with a different bank. Needless to say the managers got very frustrated as I did too, Corsicans are not known for their laid-back forgiveness! I instructed my bank to cancel attempting to get the money from the French bank. I have since noticed that the payment was based on letting a 5 bed apartment rather than a 6 bed one & I want to get this corrected. Today I checked my bank statements and noticed that last week they had received payment for the cheque that was refused before. As an investor in the shared holiday apartments business, I want the situation right. I am one of 200 property owners on the site & one of 500 owners the managers work for. I doubt whether the managers will yet have noticed the error, but presumably they will do so at some time. How would you advise handling the situation from here?
