Demolition victory for British homeowners Changes to Spanish property law prompts prosecution u-turn

Date: 2015, 24 October

By Emma Randle

FIVE illegal houses belonging to British owners in Oria were saved from the diggers earlier this month after the public prosecution withdrew its case in light of recent changes to Spanish law on house demolitions. The properties were all constructed in 2003 and 2004 in Rambla de Oria, Almería, on non-urban land without planning permission, unbeknown to the British purchasers who bought them.


Property rights association AUAN, who recently succeeded in changing the law to provide that no house can be demolished without prior payment of compensation, supported the owners throughout and emphasised the importance of the decision in "setting a benchmark" for other similar cases.
That is why Be Spoiled only deal with clients when they take a "good"  lawyer to help them. You just can't take that risk. Some lawyers cost only 1500 euro.
