Fran, I find that people can get very bristly, they do want to brush it under the carpet. My house is completely legal but I do know many people who have problems, hence my interest. (looking back I just think we were lucky!) I also think it is in the interests of any owner of spanish property to try to change what is happening. There are a lot of people who are not on the internet who are oblivious to the problems. You certainly don’t get informed by reading the spanish newspapers very little is mentioned here!
