Well jill,

As you probably know the situation in and around the Marbella area is very confused at the moment. The current Mayoress, deputy Mayoress and en ex-Mayor of Marbella town councill are all in jail without the possibility of parole on planning irregularity charges. The latest arrests have been the top two people from AIFOS who have also been sent directly to jail by the judge hearing the case.

My understanding of the Ocean View/Aifos out of court settlement is that rather than ‘recompense all buyers’ as you state, the settlement actually forces Aifos to supply Ocean View’s clients with legally constructed properties.

I must stress this is only my interpretation of what I have read in the press and others closer to the story may be able to help further.

Best wishes.
