“I heard the Spanish housing minister proclaim the other day that in future every house sold in Spain will have to be totally legal. I suppose he’s looking at a very long future”.
An interesting quote from the spanish housing minister and one which could be interpreted in different ways. If implemented in accordance with its literal meaning and without any substantive relief in the current planning laws, then the oversupply of property could be resolved overnight because any property currently classed as illegal could not be offered for sale. (well I suppose in theory it could be offered for sale but in practise couldn’t be sold)
