FIVE more British families in Albox have been told that their dream homes could be destroyed.
They are set to join the `Albox Nine´ who are already living under the threat of demolition in Almeria.
The families were summoned to court in Huercal-Overa on 7th April to be told that their builder Osvaldo Ceferino Martinez has been charged with planning crimes relating to illegal construction.
The devastated British homeowners were given three days to appoint a lawyer so that they can defend their interests and claim compensation.
Now, the state prosecutor is seeking the demolition of the five houses in the La Molata area of Albox.
The builder Martinez will be expected to pay the 65,000 euro demolition cost as well as compensation to the homeowners.
His whereabouts is currently unknown to the families and there is growing concern about his financial status.
The case will now be sent to trial in Almeria.
