I was on site last week. The offices have reopened, and I was told that Huma had received a phone call telling them that the licence would be issued very soon, but that they would only be able to restart building once they had started the access road. Viva – almeria is a slagging match at the moment, I prefer either this site or the owners area at almanzorarentals.com. Hope this helps.

Unless I am mistaken – limited access is available on the site almanzorarentals.com. It is OK if you are actually an owner where you can regsiter formally – not so informative if you are patiently waiting to see whether or not to consider becoming an owner!

You’re correct OliverB. The site is run by owners for the benefit of owners. Not a lot of use to potential owners. That said, neither is all the unpleasantness on the viva-almeria site – entertaining, but not helpful.

My solicitor said January (I laughed 😆 ) – but it’s all speculation. No one knows, not even the Junta. It will be issued when it is issued (along with the thousands of others that are pending).

Anyone got any news about progress yet? Heard there was to be a meeting on 5 December at the site – anyone know the outcome?
Have looked on the viva-almeria site but nothing constuctive has been posted since last week.
- December 6, 2005 at 6:08 pm #60164
Don’t know about any meeting on the 5th. When I spoke to Huma last week they said that the next meeting wouldn’t be until January.

We put down a 3000 euro dep in oct 05. This was where we where going to retire to. Spoke to our lawyer in Vera, she said to wait as she was sure they would be granted planning permmision. but like you have all said, its going to be a long time coming i think…
- January 12, 2006 at 1:42 pm #60492
Does any one have any idea when the next meeting is due to take place about the licencing and restart of building.
- January 23, 2006 at 1:45 pm #60621
it seems we are all in the same boat, we all hope they get planning permission, but how long is one willing to wait!!!

I bought at ACC October 2004 and have paid 3 instalments. My manzana was due for completion this June. Okay, so everything is on hold until the building licence is granted. This is Spain for God’s sake, and “most” developers go ahead without all the paperwork in place. Give it a few months and all will be sorted out. Huma have their reputation at stake and Parador certainly couldn’t afford to be featured on a TV programme such as “Holiday Homes from Hell”. If the worst comes to the worst (which it won’t) Huma will be in breach of contract and bank guarantees for money paid will be honored. I have friends in France and Germany who have bought at ACC through agents in their own country and none (at the moment) are overly perturbed by the present halt. They know all about Spain and the “tommorow, tommorow” culture and are prepared for a delay. They will not form action groups or whatever until Huma has categorically announced that they cannot continue with the ACC build. I was in Spain last week (20th to 27th Jan 06) and visited the Huma offices in Mazarron and spoke with the 2nd in command to head honcho Mr Vivancos. It is a very complicated situation and there are a lot of issues to be overcome. These issues are not necessarily concentrated on the Almanzora Country Club but on the General Plan for the Cuevas District of which the development is part, hence, it could take some time before the matter is resolved. I asked the Huma 2nd in command when he thought building at ACC would start again and his best estimate was April 2006. I believe him on this date, and have no other option but to hang in, be patient and wait.

sorry to say but have you not heard of them brainwashing you mmmmmmm 😈
- January 30, 2006 at 10:40 pm #60734
No, Mr/Mrs Guest I’m not brainwashed that easily. I am reporting to this forum what i believe to be the truth. It’s easy to come out with your “flip” one-line comments………… Next time join the forum with a username and say something relevant. Not the “mmmmmmmmmm” shit which mean nothing.
- January 30, 2006 at 10:49 pm #60735
Well, after having read many articles about the problems with this development I would say you are definately looking on the bright side, good luck, you need it.
- January 31, 2006 at 8:21 am #60736
You say that you have read many articles about the problems at ACC. The only problem that I can find (albeit a large one) is that there is no BL. Could you, please, tell me what these many other problems are?
- January 31, 2006 at 10:40 pm #60742
well with a name like RAMBO you will need more than luck on your side, do you not realise they are fobbing you of to get ride of you out of there office, you are going to need a barrel of luck, 😛 😛 😛
- February 1, 2006 at 9:45 am #60744
Have you bought at ACC, Mr Guest? I don’t think so. You never make a positive comment about anything on this forum. All you do is gloat, preach doom and gloom and hide behind the mask of being a “Guest”.
I don’t need luck and I certainly wasn’t given a ride by Huma. What are you babbling on about? A “ride?” Get a dictionary or else learn to type properly.
The latest news (not for your benefit, but for genuine ACC buyers) came yesterday from my 2 independent Spanish solicitors. Both have advised me that the regional government’s Urban Development Department for the Cuevas district is granting BL’s for the construction of 12,000 new properties. This is a dramatic cutback as various builders had applied for a total of 140,000 new properties. This is very good news for ACC buyers as Huma will be allocated 2,000 (of the 12,000) BL’s. Around 1,300 ACC properties have already been sold and the 2,000 figure is not far short of Huma’s original request.
- February 13, 2006 at 3:24 pm #60941
so when will these be granted. its alright to say they will be there but another is when??? I would like to know if they will be granted in two years time or now as that really doesnt help! 😕
- February 13, 2006 at 5:01 pm #60944
You seem well informed “rambo” my lawyer has been unable to give such assurances – who are your lawyers?
- February 13, 2006 at 5:13 pm #60945
it would be good to see that in writing rambo
