Mark, first of all congratulations on your new comment. You describe the situation with the necessary hardness and I fully agree that management should pay for their mistakes and not the beneficial owners. An administration who fulfills its responsibilities brings the image of security that the Spanish property market needs to sell out of Spain.
A fine tunning about the reference that you do on the responsibility of architects.
As an expert on this area, I ´sure that you know what are the responsabilities, duties and limits of our work.
For this reason I understand that in your comment you mean the architects working in the Administration (Local Town Halls and Autonomous Community), which report together with the attorneys if a license is correct about the plan.
It is true that architects also are responsible when we work as directors of illegal constructions, but in most cases you point out, the construction had the permits so it was “legal” at these moment.
As things are neither black nor white, it´s also true that:
-Regarding the architects working in the administration, I must say in his defense that often are under severe pressure and more than one architect has had major problems at work.
-Regarding some of the architects who worked in those buildings and knew the situation, there is a moral responsibility.
As I said, I fully agree with your comment. The first step to change the situation is that everyone, starting with the Community Autonomous Comumunity and local town councils, assume their financial , legal and of course moral, responsibilities.
