Eye on Spain Newsletter 29 January 2008

Buenos dias

Last week's newsletter was rather distressing as we looked into the case of Len and Helen Prior whose house was demolished in Vera this month.

This week we're on a more positive note as we look at the reasons why you should still consider buying in Spain.

But before I move on I just wanted to let you know that I spoke to Len Prior today (very nice chap) and we discussed some ideas how we could take some action to stop further demolitions going ahead.  I've put, and will continue to add, updates to the thread on the forum:

Vera house demolished

I hope everyone will support us on whatever action we decide to take.  Thanks to all those who are already showing support.

And finally, for various reasons we are really behind with getting our backlog of articles and information out to you so we may send you a couple of extra emails next month to make up some time.  Hope that's ok.

Now, let's move on with today's articles:
