One comes to Spain wants to buy a home, sees one advertised in the real estates window, views, likes, makes an offer, sees a lawyer all cleared as legal, planning permission etc to buy, pays and then months, years later are told that although planning permission WAS granted it now has been revoked and the villa will be pulled down. Is that not like the government giving you a driving licence then years later your stopped by the police , checking your licence you find it's been revoked although you've done nothing wrong? YOU COULDN'T MAKE IT UP!!

IN TODAYS UK PRESS: These type of headlines do nothing to help the struggling real estate sector to recover: The 100,000 British expats whose Spanish homes could be bulldozed any day HERE IS THE READS STORY: Three months after Brian and Lynne Reade(see photo) moved into Zurgena, a neighbour invited them to an emergency meeting. There, the couple from Banbury, Oxfordshire, were told the local government had deemed their home illegal. An immediate halt was called to the development of other properties and planning permission issued on those already built was revoked.
