What happened in Albox is typical of the rest of Spain, corrupt local government cheating corrupt regional government, resulting in mostly British expats being cheated.
There are Alboxes all over expat Spain, tens of thousands of them. So far, as far as I know, the corrupt Spanish administrations have only demolished one ‘illegal’ house, the Priors. It has probably cost Spain millions in Brits stopping buying in Spain.
But when you sit in the sun overlooking the blue Mediterranean, you forgive, just about anything. And if you don’t, you screw your face up and post nasty things about Spain from the internet.
