MEP Michael Cashman has slammed an official property roadshow, which is promoting Spain’s million-plus empty properties abroad.
The former Eastenders actor, who represents British expats in Spain, insists that the official drive by Spain’s Minister for Public Works Jose Blanco in London this week, is inappropriate, unless Spain protects those who have already bought here.
In an open letter, he writes: “I have received literally hundreds of letters from distraught European citizens who after having legitimately acquired homes with proper legal advice and the green light from officials, mayors, lawyers and developers, have been evicted and their house and life savings demolished with absolutely no compensation.”
And he added: “I would not advise any investment in Spanish property until this problem is resolved”.
Meanwhile Keith Rule from the Bank Guarantees in Spain Action Group said: “This is an insult to all those of us who stand to lose so much due to the corruption and negligence in the Spanish property sector.”
