So why has the archaic unfair non public auction system not been stopped before now, or is the answer all too obvious ?

I dont know if there is additional benefit money to help feed children of the unemployed in Spain.......... somehow I think not.
Actually the benefits in Spain are pretty generous.

My BIL had worked on contract for 5 years earning about 25k per year. He got paro for 2 years at over 1,000 euros per month - and a payoff of 15k when he lost his job
My OH is on maternity leave, which is 850 euros per month for 4 months. She also gets free social security payments for 1 year
We get a child payment of 100 euros per month plus there are other tax advantages at the end of the year

Of course the problem is when benefits run out!

Be very careful before you answer.
No, not a lier, just mistaken!

If these properties exist I'd be very interest in seeing the URLs to them

You obviously only looked for the expensive ones in good areas

The ones I am talking about are in not particularly good areas, but for a family in need, you cannot be really choosy. It's a question of getting a ceiling over your heads and hopefully later you can move out to a better place.

Just run a search for 3 bed flats with lift in Valencia, and put the lowest allowed amount for searching as maximum limit, show the results in ascendant order. You will be surprised...

Someone in my family bought one like this in Barcelona for 500k a few years ago

jajjaaa.. I had actually put my eye on this one and several similar others! But not the time yet as it wil be some time before I'm back. I might well buy a cheap property such as this one and leave my better flat rented out when I come back.

For me, as long as it's got at least 3 beds, a lift, it's close to the metro and hopefully close to the universities... good enough. I quite like DIY and have learnt (by personal mistakes mostly) a few building skills...

This kind of thinking is just not British.
Hold on a minute, most of the thread is the argument that indeed there is no difference between British immigrants in Spain and those in the UK

If you ban the debate then you allow unhealthy opinions to rot and come out even more rotten!

You obviously have a high opinion of most English men, assuming that they will be actually speaking Spanish in Spain

Oh and by looks of your avatar and previous post, an obsession with pleasuring yourself

If they aren't selling at that price it just shows how bad things are. Could possibly be a lead in though and not listed when you go to view. Some on fotocasa state low price and then there is a mortgage to take over.

In Spain I would have had 400 euros per month for 2 years with interviews every 3 months... and it was extended because of the crisis when people couldn't find a job within 2 years, with or without kids. So yes, I think that much of the Spanish system is better. Not all, just as not all the UK system is better.
Bot of a contradiction....a few posts back you were spouting about the over-generous system in the UK

I am with yoU on this one, valid points. I know someone who is not getting dole because the low life scum of his employer did not pay the SS quota for him.
