Back in the day when I was listing properties, we used to have to go there.

You know, to measure the place, inspect it, stick a value on it, get rid of the corpses...

How things have changed.

Buyer finds mummy in Spanish flat

A man in north-eastern Spain has made an unexpected discovery after buying a new home without seeing it first.

Inside he found the mummified body of the previous owner.

Gordi Giro bought the flat in the Costa Brava resort of Rosas at an auction after the previous owner defaulted on her payments.

He told police that he was shocked on going into the flat for the first time to discover her dead body sitting on the sofa.

It seems that Maria Luisa Zamora failed to keep up payments on her mortgage because she had in fact died in 2001.


Police believe the body has been preserved by the salty sea air.

Coroners said Mrs Zamora died of natural causes.

But questions are being asked about why no-one has been concerned as to her whereabouts for the last six years.

Police say neither her estranged husband nor her children in Madrid registered a missing persons report for the 55-year-old.

Neighbours say Mrs Zamora had bought the flat as a holiday home and told AFP news agency that when the garden grew over they assumed she had simply stayed away.

This article is shocking. I am stunned that she could have been left there for 6 years and nobody reported her death. Not even her own family even put out a missing persons report.

This property was reposessed, valued, auctioned, sold and then bought again with nobody looking at it? How the hell can that happen?

I did some work experience for an estate agent while at college and going around some of the repossessed houses was the worst. One we went too had been abandoned and the previous owners had left in such a hurry that they had forgot they owned two cats. The smell was terrible, not just from the mess the cats had made, but from two cats that had run out of food and failed to escape.

Once the house was checked a professional cleaning company was sent in to sort it out before it was sent to auction.
