Right the next day after renting the property the owner came claiming that he wanted HIS house. That the guy in charge had no authorization for renting the villa. The owner, an italian, just came to his house and threated me and my family to throw us out of the property if we did not vacate it in one hour time. THE GUY ISSUED A DIRECT THREAT REQUIRING US TO VACATE HIS VILLA OR ELSE... yes just like that.
We had to call the cops to prevent more troubles and they just persuaded him to cease. That's my experience in Villa Brasil Las Terrenas, Dominican Republic.
