I think the main difference re property problems in Spain compared to other countries is the significantly huge market there (probably causing a bubble).

Of course there are developer and build/legal problems etc in Bulgaria, Croatia and other places, but the numbers in Spain are magnified by comparison as it has been going on far longer.

The ‘dodgy’ agents, developers and lawyers have had longer and have had far more deals to ‘perfect’ their art of deception with little or no regulation or punishment by the Spanish Authorities.

Spanish property is also far more expensive generally than these new markets, and a bubble burst is being predicted along the coastal strip, which is a huge area.

It seems that to buy a property elsewhere at a quarter or half the price will be far less of a risk than in Spain.

My opinion only.
