THE Andalucian government has taken temporary ownership of four apartments to save the inhabitants from eviction.
The owners of the properties, in Granada and Almeria, have been served eviction notices by their banks after falling behind on their mortgage payments.
The council said it is acting in line with Spanish law, which states it can intervene in cases where families are at risk of social exclusion and they are registered with the social security services of the Town Hall.
I wonder what would happen if a poor family were in a house earmarked for demolition? Having your house demolished would surely qualify for “social exclusion”.
