Default Junta de Andalucia Expropriates 63 Properties

Sorry if that title alarmed those of you of a nervous disposition!

The Junta has expropriated 63 properties to help people facing eviction in a period of just over one month since agreeing this new measure. It's good to see this actually being put into practice as so often I read of this or that new law being passed, and then nothing seems to happen.

Excellent move in the right direction.

However as with all such things there must be losers as well as winners.

Although banks, financial institutions and estate agency groups are mentioned, I'm not entirely clear who will lose at the end of the day by the expropriation.

The banks are already in a shaky situation and I would be surprised if the Govt gave them a kick in the teeth under present day circumstances.

The expropriations are only temporary, for a period of up to 3 years (at the moment, anyway). As they probably couldn't sell them anyway, may not make much difference.

So basically just a piece of sticky plaster ?

A good move for now, but I don't see too much changing within the next three years regarding the circumstances of most people,......... then what ?

Maybe so, but better than letting people bleed to death for want of one. We don't need any more suicides.

Is this the time for the government of Spain to enter into Social Housing ??

OK, everyone should pay their way, but we all understand from the UK experience there are many who have never and never will.

There are effectively more empty houses/flats etc than there are people who need somewhere to live. Someone has to take a stance on this, and surely with somewhere to live when jobs are available those who have a home to go back to rather than a hollow under a tree will count for more.
