Spain again is in the spotlight over what has been described as the zig-zag application of laws on property ownership. This time from their own MEPs’ who have woken up to the fact that in terms of property investment Spain is becoming a pariah state.

Spain's contempt for human rights is hardly a bright move when there’s intense competition for northern European investment: At a time of economic crisis, when green shoots are desperately needed, their stance is weed killer.

Of equal concern is the corruption; what can only be described as property owning apartheid mirrored in properties being seized whilst adjacent hotels are left untouched.

Such has the effect of branding Spain immoral, commercially incompetent, and institutionally corrupt. Sadly this negatively effects everyone in Spain who has an interest in property here.

This confirms what many of us already know and what several people on this forum have been in denial about.

Actually, Tish; I had intended tailing the comment by writing: 'I cannot wait for the usual band of brothers to leap to the defence of the indefensible.' I thought better of it but yes, seemingly some posters seem to take pleasure in swimming against the current'. It is perhaps their only way of standing out from the crowd? A bit like the child who shouts a naughty word to get a reaction. As I remarked on another forum they invariably keep their identies secret. Says it all really!

La ley de la costas probably affects more Spaniards than foreign owners. I agree that there is no uniformity in the way in which it is applied. How can you have a house on Mallorca, built by the owners great,great,great grandfather, demolished ( Nov. 9th 2009 ) & the 300,000€ bill given to the Spanish traffic warden owner for demolition, whilst in the La Manga area an eyesore of 2 partially built apartment blocks on the beach nets the developers12,500,000 € & the gov. foot's the demolition bill? Why, in some places ,are they still building within 40 metres of the high -tide line ? Yes , there's corruption in Spain , personally I thought everyone knew that, but it is no different from any other country where it is just far better hidden & they've had a head start due to the years of dictatorship here.

Anywhere that you have people in positions of power , you will find corruption.

I wasn't being critical of you, Tish. In fact I was underscoring your earlier comment with which I agreed. There are those on forums who will always find a way to defend the indefensible. Your take on my original posting was spot on IMO. My aside was that in other forums it is notable that posters who display bloody-minded viciousness at worst, nasty minded comment at best, choose to keep their identities to themselves. We all know that anonymous letter writers are worthless:
