It was sometime before our 2nd trip that we found other owners of the Sianella apartments and to be quite honest I can't remember how it happened but one thing that did bring the owners out of the woodwork was a posting on a Bulgarian forum.  http://www.mybulgaria.info/modules.php?name=Forums&file=viewtopic&t=3487
to set the scene.
When we first decided to purchase one of these apartments we were told that there would be a parking space for every owner, something that we now know could not happen due to the space constrictions but thats what we were told or due to the translation between English/Bulgarian we were lead to believe.
Some time later we recieved an e-mail from the property company telling us that there were parking spaces for sale and would we like to buy one.
Immediatly a thread was started on this Bulgarian forum and we found more owners.
More importantly other owners found us and very soon we knew 14 of the 28 owners and what started off as a moan about being asked if we would like to buy one of these parking spaces, soon became the place to swap information and to see what everyone else had been told information wise, and as with everything else you felt that you were not on your own  if and when things went wrong.
As with everything there were going to be problems but I felt that this thread on the forum was helping to keep problems to a minimum as there were so many of us there to pull together.
