The article talks about the new plans of the goverment to demolish properties built in illegal places. http://property.timesonline.co.uk/tol/life_and_style/property/overseas/article2781085.ece It is worth mentioning the web page of the AUAN association created to try to stop this scandals in the Almanzora Valley (my mother was born there): http://www.almanzora-au.org/ About the plans to demolish properties I am sure that the fact that the british dont vote in spanish elections make them more vulnerable to this type of actions. Politics are very predicible!

Who really knows in Spain though?, can anything suprise us anymore? Author Posts The forum ‘Real Estate Topics, News & Discussion’ is closed to new topics and replies.
