Back in rainy England
03 June 2008
after a great week at our apartment. This is the second year we have been on holiday with my sis and her family, who had to rent the apartment downstairs because our second apartment has never materialised.

Our completed apartment, bought in 2004, completed exactly two years ago - and boy, is it great. The site and area (Vera Playa) have matured beautifully. We have met some great people and the apartment has rented out really well, although admittedly this year is harder due to xchange rate. We have been overjoyed to get return bookings and also excited to read the lovely comments left in our 'visitor book'.
It was with trepidation, yesterday, that we drove to Palomares to visit the other apartment, purchased on the same day in 2004, finished in October 2006, granted a FLO for a brief 10 days earlier this year, but now facing a possible demolition order. The future rests on a decision to be made by the Junta of Andalucia, or a test court case . . . .
Two apartments, same cautious and well researched buyers, same solicitor, same area, different but well established developers, . . . .we didn't leave our brains at the airport! Buying in Spain can be, perhaps, down to luck more than just judgement.
More to follow . . .
