I watched the programme and had exactly the same thoughts as Claire, as I’m sure did any sane viewer.
It was obscene to hear how everybody involved – developers, builders, solicitors, estate agents, local town councils, the police, all conspired to do absolutely nothing and were happy to take their profits, percentages and back-handers–until the Brits had been relieved of their money.
If you can’t trust solicitors and government officials, who can you trust? To blame Brit purchasers is naiive. Let’s face it, at the end of the day Spain is still little more than a banana republic.
I know I will not be buying there– I have somewhere much safer and nicer in mind. But I’m not telling you lot or you’ll all be there and they’ll have a property boom.
