    Hi ck1

    Sorry to hear your difficulties.

    A comment that I have experienced from..

    Whilst waiting for a development at Los Lagos to be built we rented a property which had this central passage of ground that was owned by the Town Hall.

    Originally, from owners comments, the town hall did maintain it quite well but some 4 years down the line, it became a wilderness of long grass and graffiti on walls etc.

    It also was a public right of way ! which while we were there a set of buglars decided this was good access and escape route.

    We noticed that several of the owners had formed an exit from their garden area and were maintaining the public area outside their property themselves.. why they didn’t group together and do them all I don’t know.

    From comments by our lawyers on something else, it may well be considered that a pool is a pool and unless the specification of the build project depicted the build size / dimensions I doubt this will be a reasonable argument.

    There may need to be a considerable difference between the build specification generally and the actual finish for you to be able to have any legal case.

    You do not state whether you are looking for financial recompense or intend to back away from the purchase. I expect the latter.

    My own build specification for Los Lagos was a simple sheet with a very broad outline, nothing in any detail.

    Perhaps we are all too trusting or lax ( excited even, and forgetting how long and hard we worked to provide this additional money ), when buying these Spanish properties and should request proper plans and full bill of quantity type specifications so that we are better armed for builders and evelopers problems.

    You do not say where the site is, maybe if you did someone else involved would be of mutual support, you’ll hopefully be surprised with the support this forum gives.

    My wife and I are seriously thankful 🙂

    thank you both to take the time to reply to my/our problem.

    it really isn’t about any form of laxity or hindsight it is just for advice. the apartments are in antas near garrucha,vera,mojacar etc. i signed in july 2003 and just want to complete now.

    i dont want to spend any more money on lawyers, i haven’t go what i wanted but it seems that off plan what will be will be.

    Hi Cliff,
    As promised in my PM I asked around for any info for you but I didn’t have much luck. What I have found out will probably make matters worse!
    It seems that the developer probably did intend to buy the ”green area” in the center of the complex to use as the pool area. They allegedly have a good relationship with the mayor and thought that they would be able to get around the ”problem”, but the ”problem” is to big for a lowly mayor to solve. Apparently under no circumstances can you put any kind of development, including a pool, on a graveyard. Yep, many years ago it was it was a graveyard, all the bodies had been removed a long time ago, years before the surrounding area was sold for development, but the ground remains sacred. Next time your there pop in to Olivers early one afternoon and ask for Ray and Layla, they live in the complex next to yours,they are really nice people and they’ll know all the latest news.
    Sorry I couldn’t have had better news for you, but if I find out anything else I’ll let you know.
    P.S. personally I don’t think the developer or the mayor will allow the area to fall into disrepair once the development is finished.
    Martin.
