New Andalucian Property Legislation aims to legalize almost 300.000 buildings
Almost 300.000 illegal buildings in Andalucia are about to be regularized as the New Andalucian Property Legislation comes into effect this month.
The decree, which affects all of Andalucia, aims to legalise many of the buildings constructed on rural land. Nevertheless this still leaves a large number of properties that for one reason or another will not qualify for the legalisation process.
This has attracted the attention of potential clients from Scandinavian countries looking to buy property in the Axarquia area, especially around La Viñuela reservoir, according to a report in local Spanish daily La Opinión de Malaga.

Health Center Of Talavera for Arch Daily's Building of the Year 2011 contest
Arch Daily, the world's most visited architecture website, chose Health Center Of Talavera for its Building of the Year 2011 contest.
Arquitecnica Architects Roberto Moreno Klemming and Peru Cañada Omagogeascoa, built the new Health center of Talavera de la Reina, Toledo, in the middle of a single family neighbourhood. A semi public path diagonally cuts through the building,ending in an open courtyard with the large staircase and the main entrance at the end. The main quality of this Plaza, however will be to led people into the building complex and provide orientation for visitors.

Dubai hotel chains come to Mallorca. Luxury Strategic Plans set in Costa del Sol
"As the pain of Spain's property crash continues to hit people hard, a nationwide movement is now fighting back", writes Tom Barridge, BBC News correspondent.
These words strongly crash, just like our Real Estate Market crashed, against "other realities" such as Dubai hotel chains coming to Mallorca and Luxury Strategic Plans in Costa del Sol.
Yesterday, February the 29th, thousands of citizens took the streets in protest. No need to explain why. Pure impotence could be registered by hundreds of images shared via facebook, twitter, flickr and other social networks.
Younger Spaniards for the first time don't believe parents who have told them for decades that they should always buy instead of rent and treat real estate as an investment that will never go bad. The age-old saying in Spain that prices never go down or not for long is now broken.
