Thank you for your reply – would you consider opening an office in Mazarron? 🙂
There are many, many people in Murcia being encouraged to make stage payments on off-plan properties that turn out not to have building licences, to make payments without receiving bank guarantees, to make final payments and take keys without the escritura and to sign the escritura without Habitation Certificates. It appears to be the normal state of affairs and many lawyers seem to have no problem with this.
The attitude is encouraged by purchasers who think that this is “The Spanish Way”and that to object is in some way an insult to the Spanish people.
Thank you for your good wishes.
