    mijnheer verteld er niet bij dat hij wel kan leven met een 30 euro schadevergoeding.
    blijkbaar zou hij dan wel tevreden zijn wat ik zelf niet zou zijn wanneerhet mijn gekochte kavel zou zijn.
    ik stelde hem voor het kavel terug te nemen en de koop hiermee ongedaan te maken waarna hij met het voorstel van 30 euro kwam.
    aan mijn bereidwilligheid heeft het daarom niet gelegen.
    jammer van deze Feedback
