I HAVE been contacted by a number of Londoners facing problems with property bought in Spain.
They have told me about how land has been taken away from owners and handed to developers, or how some owners face unexpected and unfair bills from municipalities, lawyers or developers.
I am working alongside MEPs in the European Parliament to put pressure on the Spanish authorities to clean up their act.
It shocks me to think that Londoners are investing their hard earned cash into property that can later be taken with little or no compensation. This is something we must stamp out before anyone else falls foul of it.
Readers who are having problems with a Spanish property can email me at email@example.com or write to me at Unit 11 Kingsmill Business Park, Chapel Mill Lane, Kingston KT1 3GZ.
SYED KAMALL MEP,
Member of the European Parliament for London, by email.
