Beware of Juan Perdomo Century 21 My letter of complaint...please beware.

Re: Purchase of #18 Playa Laguna

On or around the middle of March 2005 I bought and made a transaction of a house from Century21 and Guido was the acting attorney for the sale of the property namely # 18 Playa Laguna, Sosua, Puerto Plata. At your head office in Guido Perdomos office Plaza Perdomo, Calle Pedro Clisante # 73, Sosua, Puerto Plata, Dominican Republic in the presence of myself Adrian William OCallaghan, My Now ex-wife Katy OCallaghan, Namibia Ciriaco Pea listing the property and the names Alex Leemans and his wife Anabela acting as realtor's & finally the seller of the said property at that time in March of 2005.

Unfortunately and regrettably it has come to light and has been noted on the selling of the house between myself and the prospected buyer with the help of the buyers attorney it was discovered from going through the process of selling and sorting out some paper work for exchanging contracts, someone has made a claim that they own the said property namely above in this complaint. [continued below]....

So it turns out that the attorney Guido Perdomos didn't check the title search and it wasn't complete and has now left me with a property I can't sell...!

I have made lots of contacts with this company and with Guido directly but with no reply to any of my complaints so my big question is what sort of company doesn't reply to your complaints? (THINK ABOUT THIS BEFORE YOU USE THEIR SERVICES) its no joke when you invest your money only to find out later that the company you trusted has neglected their duties in making and finding out all the information with neglected to look after the buyer when making the purchase at the said property above.

Here are some of my emails to give you an idea of what it is I'm up against.

Dear Guido/Juan Perdomo, 
As you are fully aware I have sent you a letter of complaint on the 27th Jan 2012 at 10:22 hours. This now has become critical and I will start thinking about taking further actions of my letter and will now give you notice of my said action.

(1) I will start by complaining to the professional bodies of you practice of licencing law/attorney and request on having your licence of attorney removed from practice and send them copies of the letter and all email communications from my witnesses.

(2) Then I will complain to the main office of Century 21 and give them my full details of the complaints that I have against your companies and send them copies of the letter and all email communications. I have already made communication with Century 21 and have a complaint number
to return any further communications to them.

(3) I will set up Blogs/websites and use other websites/blogs already in existence on are on the internet like the Century 21 complaint blog Dr1 website giving all of the details in full about the way you handle your clients and business practices and how you don't respond to complaints when one is being sent to you.  And will also put a copy of my letter on the websites/Blogs that I have made up or have become a member of.

(4) I will at some point in the future take you and your companies to court within the Dominican Republic and will have key professional witnesses (NAME LEFT OUT) / (NAME LEFT OUT) to help me with my case against you.Now as you can see when "NOT" if I do these things from steps 1 to 4 your company will be feeling some kind of loss and you will be having a "BIG" problem with handling the fluctuations of incoming concerns from your future clients.

I will make it my duty to have every given spare time in my life to make sure the above 1 to 4 will go ahead. And unless I hear from you or your company within seven days with some kind of compensation plan put together I will start using and taking these actions without notice to yourselves and, or your companies.

(WARNING) You have in your best interests to make communication to all parties concerned and are involved with this case and the selling of my house at the time of sale. I will wait for your reply email within seven days. P.S please find the copy of the letter I sent to you on the 27th of Jan.

Dear Guido/Juan Perdomo, 
I have sent you a letter in the attachments as I have just found out that the property I purchased from you is in fact now in a dispute and it is questionable to file a law suit against you because of your level of incompetence with inadequate Legal Work taking a deslinde title of 800 some m2 and a property that is just shy of 1300m2 and not wondering, verifying, taking measures to insure the property is as it should be or simply measuring his expertise since it would have been obvious to a professional like Guido who is dealing in real estate every day and should know his stuff in being a lawyer/solicitor that there was almost double the land than what the deslinde title says and made inquirers to see why there is a difference in land size!!! 

So anyone who is looking for honesty and professionalism in the DR real estate market, I would NOT recommend Juan Perdomo Century 21 In any way or shape..!

Update 28th Apr 2015

AUTHOR: - ()

"UPDATE" date: 28th April 2015

I'm letting all readers know I'm still haven't resolved the issue of Guido Perdomo and still trying to sell my house and having to get help from a person who I am in full contact with.

As it turns out he and his partner Namibia Ciriaco are holding my Delinda house deeds to ransom. I have requested my Deslinda documents to be presented to my power of attorney as he needs these papers to fight in the courts. They are refusing to give these important documents to my power of attorney unless I give them money.

This would prove all along just how bad and incompetents they have been and there were in the wrong by selling me land and property without any full research beforehand. Furthermore Guido Perdomo hasn’t come forth or has 100% refused to help resolve or act with any help to courts when needed by my power of attorney.

Remember people, I’m the unhappy customer of this company acting the way they have.

subject: Complaints.

Dear Mr. Callaghan.

We have seen the letters you have sent to complaints.com and according to the message the Lawyer Namibia Ciriaco has sent you, those declarations you made there are not true. The real truth is that you could sell this house at any time but for that you must count with an assembly in which your former wife authorizes the sell and also bring your company up to date according to the new Corporate Law and also pay the Corporate Taxes which have not been paid in several years in violation the the laws of the Dominican Republic.

We are here informing and demanding that these publications are retired within 24 hours, that is, by wednesday March 14th. before 2 pm. USA Eastern Time, otherwise we will proceed to sue you for defamation in the Dominican Courts, in order you can prove there your allegations, and to ask for a compensation of Fifteen Million Pesos (RD$15,000,000.-) for the damages you have caused to our more than 26 years with correct working reputations, a lien will be placed immediately to your property in order to cover the compensation the dominican courts may entitle us.

Thanks for your attention.

My reply email to Guido Perdomo. Namibia is now the acting attorney for the buyer.

Dear Guido,

Before you consider in taking action against myself may I send you some emails from the attorney Namibia Ciriaco proving that indeed I have full accounts of my facts and further more will/would be asking the courts to use Namibia Ciriaco as a witness to these true allegations made against you Guido.

So Mr. Guido Perdomo as you can see I had given you plenty of warning of my actions and what I would do if I didn't get any response/compensation from you or your company.
Moreover these actions against yourself and your company is only the beginning as this is step # three of what I will do to give full accounts of my actions to what I said I would do in my communications with the company by emails.So please check your emails again very carefully and may I add that unless I receive the full compensation of $180.000 dollars from you Guido or from the company then I'll start with steps # 1,2,and4 to my email sent to your office on the  7 March 2012 10:16.

Here are my communications with Namibia.....please read carefully as it does state explicitly what is made in my letter of complaints and I'm not the kind of person to be making false accusations.
And my name is Mr. O'Callaghan "not" repeat "not" Callaghan call yourselves a professional company when you can't get the name right to whom your making email conversation with.

email # 1. from Namibia/Gesa

Hello Adrian, 

I just had a conversation with Gesa a few minute a go, today I spend the morning in Puerto Plata reviewingthe consultation room of the Register of Deeds. She was considering another property beside yours but after what I talked with her she gave me  an idea.
I read also the mail you have prepare for Guido, and there's some point that I'll like to talk about this. 

1- As I told you before when Guido did the transfer to you, the title had already a deslinde and taking this as a reference, instead of being mad with him the best idea is trying to get him involve in the situacion because if there's is a problem he was also cheat as he finish everything with a Title with a Deslinde on it.
2- I have the idea that you are confuse about me I was not the person that sold the property as a sales agent, it was my partner Anabella and her husband Alexander, yes, you sow me becasue I was involved in the proces but I do not remember being in the closing mostly considering that at this time I had already my daugther wich means that I was not married with Martin ( my ex husband that also work in the company). I'm the black woman that help you out with your residency at this time I was lawyer already but I was not working as a lawyer just as a Realtor.
3- I think we can find a way to fix this situation just let me talk to Guido tomorow and inform him about Gesa idea and I hope we can end all this in a good way.
Any question you have feel free to asked it, I want to help you in any way possible and Gesa also want to buy the property but she want to be sure that what ever she is buying is something that won't bring any problem to her later on.

Have a nice day.


Email # 2. very important this one :)
Hello Adrian,

Today I had a meeting with Guido, to explain the situation you are presenting your house and showed mesomething that surprised me a lot.
I always thought that Guido had done the survey of the terrain, but it turns out that when buying the house was the fact Delinda.
Guido did not participate in that operation.
Being so if there is a legal problem regarding the ownership of the land, is a product of Delinda from "Gavinet" as he was called to the boundaries that were made before the new law.

Still I have a very important question. When I say that Guido did the survey, I discuss the transfer of title or the operation of individualization of your field?
What if you made guido was the transfer of land to your name but according to the document you showed me the defining posterity had been done to it.
Tomorrow I have to check in the Consultation Room and compare some data that I have to verify the information that Guido gave me.I hope that in the consultation room the results are good.

I keep you informed.



Email # 3

Hi Adrian, 
I just got off the phone with Namibia and she took the opportunity to verbally confirm to me what I read up on on that website that I had quoted you. We are running into a small problem. 

The company's capital was quoted at 100,000 pesos in the company papers. The company was the owner of the house and land. The land titles office does evaluate the value of a property using a formula based on the area that house is in and not on the quoted companies capital.
Since the new company law came into effect in 2008 companies have have a minimum of 500,000 pesos as company capital and have to pay 1% of the value of the real estate held by the company in annual property taxes. Therefore, Namibia will be contacting the tax office tomorrow to see what they have the house valued at and then figure out how much the retroactive taxes that the company owes on the property are. In other words, lets say the tax office values the property at $100k then the company would owe taxes of $1,000 for 2008 and every year thereafter until the company gets closed. So there is probably somewhere in the neighbourhood of maybe $4,000 to $7,200 (my guess based on $100-180K) that the company owes in past due property taxes from 2008 until today before the company can get closed. In other words, you saved the stamp tax of 3.7% at the time of purchasing the property in 2006 when you opted to have it held by a corporation but because the property ended up  being held by a corporation and the corporate laws changed in 2008, the corporation owes property taxes from 2008 until now. Needless to say that the company can not be closed or for that metter sell the property until it has squared up with the tax office on the past due property taxes. I guess if anybody was to blame, it would be Guido Perdomo that should have followed up with/contacted all the clients that he set up property holding companies for when/before the corporate laws changed in 2008.
As per Namibia's legal advice today, we will pay the property purchase taxes/stamp taxes of 3.7% based on the supposed value (as per my guess between $3700 to $6660) and then we will hold the property privately. That way the property will be exempt from paying any property taxes (I think for 10 years) provided the property is valued at less than $150,000 (which will then again be up to the land titles office and their area formula to determine the property value).
Make a long story short, Namibia finally got a copy of the title today (she was not able to open the zip file that you sent me before and I forwarded to her). With a copy of the title in hand, which gives her the exact legal description and probably the number of the title, Namibia will go to the appropriate authorities first thing tomorrow morning to figure out how much exactly the company owes in retroactive taxes from 2008 until now, so that it can be closed asap to stop the meter on the property taxes from running and she will also apply for an updated property title to establish that the title is free and clear otherwise at the time of sale. From there the retrocative property taxes need to get paid to close the company and the property is sold as the company closes, at which point we have to pay the purchase price, stamp taxes (see above) and as we had agreed to all the lawyers  and corporate fees (Namibia told us today that the chamber of commerce also gets an annual fees that we will cover) so we had thought the company needed to be upgraded to meet 2008 legal requirements as per Lisa's letter to you when in fact it should have been closed there and then to avoid incurring any further property taxes being charged on it.  So Lisa is the next bad or rather incomplete advice you got. 
Lets hope tomorrow will bring better news and some miracle happens that will minimize all impending property tax doom and gloom.
So long, hoping for good news and that all these obstacles will go up in smoke tomorrow and disappear miraculously.

Now Mr. Guido Perdomo I could go on with these emails as proof of my problems with buying the house from your company and we wouldn't be talking or emailing each other today if there wasn't a problem with the house boundaries.

I wait for your reply email giving details of my compensation plan and once I have your compensation I will then take down the complaint letter on Google because it has been resolved....!

Best Regards.

Adrian O'Callaghan.
