5 years ago, perhaps “the agent/lawyer/developer scam thing” wasn’t so common knowledge, but all the more reason that extra care was needed.

Can’t you see the contradiction in your statement?
If you acknowledge the corruption wasn’t such common knowledge, why would we have felt a need for that extra care?
Most criticism we purchasers receive here on this forum – and I’m not necessarily including you in this, mg – for example: we should have done more research, stupid to trust a lawyer (?), we deserved everything we got, our greed got us into this…..blah blah, comes from EA’s who had the advantage of living and working in Spain for many years.
Hindsight (or ‘inside knowledge’) is such a wonderful thing…..
