Suzanne , Mark contributed several articles to a Sunday Times supplement this week,regarding the Costa Azahar region ,all very absorbing stuff ,however one article did provide a link to two UK based solicitors ,one of which Irwin Mitchell are dealing with several cases In the Almeria provence in respect of illegal build,both practices listed have Spanish offices and may be of use to people thinking of buying in Spain ,to contact in the first instance.
Both firms have very informative web sites which are listed as follows ;
http://www.irwinmitchell.com, and Davies Arnold Cooper at http://www.dac.co.uk ,might be worth a look. By way of a diversion I came across a truly superb web site devoted to Spanish wild life titled iberiannature, extremely well detailed and readable ,and provides a fascinating insight into the quite exotic wildlife that is a bit closer than you think !!.
Appreciate however, that for some at the moment , they have probably had more than enough exposure to to exotic wildlife.
