Re. the Spanish illegal properties (We don’t talk about them very much now!!) Another Mayor is in court this week. The mayor is charged with granting licences on protected land. It is stated the properties will have to be demolished as they can never be legal (Cómpeta). Mayor of Manilva also in court this week.

But will the Judges order the Mayors to pay compensation to those whose houses have to be demolished, the ones ie. Brits who bought in good faith…probably not!

Although the judge ordered to pay, he probably will avoid it, but remember that the licenses are issued by the City Council (not the Mayor, the Architect or the Secretary). In this case, the economic claim of those null licenses, should be against the City

Yes, you are correct. I think that’s what the Priors did (not that it did much good 🙁 )

In the case of Priors, the Judge didn´t say that they had no reason. He said that the claim against the City was premature because there had no final declaration of nullity of the license.
Not a good court decision for them (for all in general ) but they have the door open to a new demand that must solve this unfair situation.
But although the result was bad, for now, not everything went wrong. The judge forced the City to provide a home that had satisfied the conditions and characteristics of the demolished or, alternatively, satisfy the amount of 800 euros per month in rent for a house in the same conditions until the appeal was resolved.

Katy, the news I have about the case are from the press. You probably have your right and they continue to live their own nightmare… but one thing is sure, the responsibility of the City is clear and finally they will win the battle (and therefore, the lawyer and the costs will be returned by the City).
Moreover,I can not understand that the City execute a demolition if there is not a final declaration of nullity
Returning to the origin of this conversation. The evidence that the municipalities are responsible and the courts recognize this responsibility is that a the judge forced the City to provide them a home or…. until the appeal was resolved.
I hope that the process will be short and finally exemplary judgment give them the reason and the City pay (demolition, accommodation costs, interest, lawyers, etc …). It would be very good for everyone….even for City (although the City don´t know it)
