“IT WILL NOT HAPPEN TO ME”
Many people do know someone with a house in Spain or someone who is looking for a house. Of course not all homes are problem cases, luckily. But let’s not forget that because the Spanish housing market has a culture of illegal building and renovation we are talking huge numbers, from entire apartment buildings to chalets in the top segment. Many people who initially thought “it will not happen to me, because I am guided by good and reliable professionals”, meanwhile have to face the facts.
That relatively little comes out is because of the aforementioned fear, or perhaps even shame. As long as fear and shame reign, we will never break this vicious circle. And that must happen because Spain is perhaps the most beautiful country in Europe with lovely inhabitants!
