This guy was the one who was going to buy our place last year (about 11 months after the begining of offending), but then decided he had no money........

It was all a bit odd really, he seemed to be buying the property for his wife as he indicated he would be away for a while. I wonder if that is what he meant?????

The contract went unconditional for about 4 days before he bothered to tell us he had no money. Seems his father was funding this whole business, but had a change of mind or something.

Don't know all the ins and outs, but it was a rather strange experience all around. So this latest piece of the puzzle puts a lot of it into perspective.

Yuck.

In my last job I had two guys I dealt with put away, one for historical sex offending against his (then very small) kids, and one for manslaughter of his stepdaughter which happened a few days after the last time I visited him. I felt sick to my stomach on hearing the news both times, but can't say it surprised me as both gentlemen used to give me the creeps. After you hear about it, you start to think about all the times you were on their property just with them, or whether you should have seen some signs (second case). Overall it just makes you feel sick [:(!][xx(] and makes you realise how prevalent this sort of thing is overall, and how small a community NZ really is too...

EEww

Know what you mean tigger, hindsight........intuition :(
A friend on mine told me yrs after the fact, that her father had done things, and when I thought back to when she was only a baby and my mum started babysitting her and her brothers ( I would have been about 5 or 6), I never liked the guy, there was just something I didn't like about the man.

Nasty!

Did you get any money out of him Ronnie?? I thought once it went unconditional they were pretty much committed to buy it?

In my opinion, these guys should NOT be given a second chance and should be locked away forever from society as they have given up their right to be part of it.

Oskatd, we kept the pittance of a deposit he paid. Once again, by not pushing for a proper deposit, we got stung for the second time.

Yes, once a contract goes unconditional, they are not supposed to be able to get out of it, but if he has no money, he can't (and didn't) settle on settlement date which left us out of pocket.

Still looking into our avenues of redress in the matter, but in all honesty, is it worth chasing him? We are fairly certain he is broke and now also in jail.
Hate the thought he could just walk away from the contract, but in all reality, is it worth all the hassle and stress to take it further to end up with yet another big bill (lawyers) which we just can't afford, when we know the likely outcome of such action.

Well I'm a firm believer that rights stem from responsibilities...either take both or neither[^]

How appalling, for you and for his family. I agree, I suspect you'd be throwing good money after bad, as now there is no supression, everyone will know about him - even after he gets out, he'll never get a job that pays enough I imagine.

I had a creepy customer when I mowed lawns, his partner was lovely but whenever I saw her she was always covered in bruises. When I asked, she said she'd fallen.
He was enormous and had really black eyes, like they didn't have a bottom. I was watching that doco on murderer Taffy Hotene last night and they said when you looked in his eyes, nothing stared back. This guy was like that.
I mowed this huge backyard and knew she had a young son (about 5 years old I think) but there were never toys, bikes or any sign of him in that yard.
The last time I saw her, she had a bruise shaped like a lump of wood across her arm. I asked her if I could help her in any way and she said no.
The next day he murdered her son (his stepson).
I always go with my gut now, if someone creeps me out or even gives me the shivers, I trust it.

Dont worry Kate, I will not name names. My brother manages a hotel frequented by truckies. One particular Co. has a reputation for A****hole drivers (my brother's description, a person who appologises anytime he swears!!). My brother couldnt think of even one of that Co's drivers he liked, and my brother gets on with everybody.
