Homeowner of Andalucia unite against the Juntas Decree
13 February 2012 @ 14:03

Associations representing some 40,000 owners of illegal homes from across Andalucia announced the creation of a federation to fight against the Regional Government’s Decree to regulate and clarify the situation of houses constructed on rustic land, because they believe that “it doesn’t solve anything”.

For the first time, the homeowners, made up of both Spanish and foreigner residents, met in Cordoba in a meeting organised by the Platforma de Afectados por Inundaciones del Guadalquivir, a group affect by the flooding of the Guadalquivir river.

The meeting was attended by the Federation of Associations of La Lagunas de Chiclana (Cádiz), la Asociación de Afectados por Sanciones Urbanísticas (the Association of those affected by Urban Sanctions) from Cádiz, Abusos Urbanísticos Almanzora No (AUAN) from Almería and from Malaga the Asociacion de Viviendas Irregulares (APVI) and Save Our Homes in Axarquía (SOHA). Residents groups from Cordoba were the most numerous with representatives from La Altea, La Gorgoja II, Las Perlas, Córdoba la Vieja and Fontanar de Quintos.

The associations described the meeting as “very positive” and announced that they will be seeking meetings with political parties and public administrations to look for “a solution, once and for all, for everybody”.

In addition, they announced a protest march which will take place in Sevilla on the 28th of Februrary (Andalucia Day), organised by APVI from Malaga. Paco Leon, president of the groups from Cordoba called for as much support as possible for the march.

What purpose would dissolving the decree to regularise homes in Andalucia solve? They would stay be there whatever happens. we are talking 40,000 families with homes......

The reason, I believe, to dissolve this, is exactly as described. It WON'T solve anything! Do you know that they intend to fine/charge innocent owners who bought in good faith with all legal paperwork, to "Regularise" their homes? The homes are connected to utilities, the owners pay IBI, the paperwork is all in order.....So what are they charging you for? NOTHING!!! Just another corrupt form of extortion. Only Spain could do this. The "Illegality" is just a label they have made and they want you to pay several thousand euros per household to erase the label. NOTHING will change. They will take your money for doing NOTHING.
