    Paying in $ for an apartment still under construction

    Hello, I left the apartment and got my money back in half $ and half cheque. Deposited it in the bank and withdrawing it at 3900. In the current situation it's a bad idea to buy an apartment unless you have CASH USD. If you do, then you can negotiate easily.

    Paying in $ for an apartment still under construction

    Not really because you cannot get your money from the banks and you never know if you will ever get them. However, every 2 months or so, I am buying a $2000 cheque for $760 in cash. - $760 x 7500 = 5.7m - $2000 x 3,900 = 7.8m So saving your cash, getting cheques, withdrawing them at 3900 is...

    Paying in $ for an apartment still under construction

    Hi guys. Sorry for being away. Just an update for you: I decided to drop the apartment for 2 reasons: - I don't want to continue paying in $ or put 1,500 in the notary and later go to the court. - He is so slow in construction. - I got a new job with fresh $. I got my money back in cheque. I...

    Paying in $ for an apartment still under construction

    Thanks everyone for your input. It has been great and useful. I decided to switch to a smaller apartment in the building. 2 bedrooms instead of 3. Not great, but better than nothing at this stage. I asked him, if I don't want the apartment what will you give me? He said I will take $12,000...

    Paying in $ for an apartment still under construction

    Thanks a lot guys for your input. Thank you @Abou Sandal always useful replies. However, if I pay him in cheques now and he refuse to take it, he will break the contract. What if he will give me my money on the 1,500 rate? Perhaps he might give me 50,000,000 which is less than $10k at the...

    Paying in $ for an apartment still under construction

    Actually I paid him April, May, June ($250 and 375,000). I wanted to buy him $ so I asked for his ID to go to Serraf and he said, he wants $500 now. I said our agreement was half/half. He said from now on, as you can buy $ you have to bring it to him. But our agreement was half/half till the end...

    Paying in $ for an apartment still under construction

    Thanks guys. I know $500 is not a lot, but for now: I rent another house, I pay all the bills as I am a single child taking care of my mother. So I am the only one who is working. I don't want to pay him 750,000 LBP, because that's not fair to him. But I guess I will give him a cheque of $600...

    Paying in $ for an apartment still under construction

    Thank you. I agreed with him to pay half USD/LBP, So $250 in cash and $250 in LBP (375,000). In that way we split the amount together as long as the official rate doesn't change. If it does, then I have to pay him fully in USD. Now, I tried to pay him half and he said he cannot accept it as...

    Paying in $ for an apartment still under construction

    Hello, In mid-2018 I bought an apartment. The owner (his first project ever) told me in 1.8 months he will finish it. 2 years has passed and he is still working on it. The work is quite slow due to the shortage of $ and the crazy rates of $. However, I paid him $40,000 at the beginning as a...
