in spain , there was a property law in 1994 , which allows any buliding company to make an appliction to build on any land with minimal consent and public enquiries, in practice what has happened is a builder crease the palm of a local council to build housing and take away properties from ( mostly british ) owners without compensation AND the owners are required to pay money toward the cost of building of utilities pipes , water and electricity interestingly enough the building companies can name their prices with some having to pay £200,000 in some cases, and the spanish courts dont care they frequently ignore "human rights" in spite of being part of the EU and signed up to the charter the EU is not going to do anything about it
now you see why im so mad at the injustice of it
Gibraltarian beware ! this is what the spics will do to you !
Another one to watch out for if you are thinking of buying a bar over in Spain, is that there is a 'protection racket' that goes on and you will be expected to pay for the privelege of not having your bar burnt down.
Dont see what all the fuss is about. Scaremongering by that rag the mail as usual.
I have had a property in Spain for 6 years and just recently sold it. My brother has a property there and a business. My sister has one there and a business. My parents have one there. Many of my friends have a property there. As was said you can get ripped off anywhere if you dont bother to do you research. Look at estate agents in the UK! Most of the real estate agents out there that attempt to rip you off are Brits.
Anyway, my brother is selling his place anyone want a 3 bed villa in the south east of Spain with its own swimming pool?
They may be a bunch of dagoes but they know how to chill out and not take life too seriously.
