Development units at Corvera are probably built on alluvial soil in the valley, not solid rock which provides generally better resistance to quake damage.  Much will depend on the adequacy of the foundation concrete (quality?) rafts or foundation footings. One might might some wall/ceiling cracks of no great structural significance, but  general effects on structures quite near each other can differ widely within short distances from epicentres.

Buildings in Lorca seen in photographs on the Internet display varying degrees of damage, the older structures seemingly suffering more than the modern ones on the ,as one would expect.

Not sure whether Murcia building regulations demand quake resistant new buildings. They shoud do, as the area is an active earthquake zone with known active faults..

I think Corvera is within about 25 miles or so from the epicentre near Lorca.

The onsite man who posted earlier will I am sure report back.

I have now spoken to a number of people onsite and the tremor from the earhquake was quite strong, especially noticable on upper floors of the apartment blocks and I arrived back to find one vase sitting broken on the floor where it came off the shelf

I have now checked more than 30 properties and there is no evidence of additional cracking internally on any walls or ceilings and no obvious immediate damage to external paths and paving around pools and gardens

The office have not been called out to any leaks so I will continue to monitor and will be checking another 30 properties later today and updating the owners
