Neither the builders nor the development company for the VPO’s (government subsidized housing) in La Caleta, Salobreña, have offered any explanation as to why the housing is not ready for handing over, as promised.
The 46 families, who have already paid over important quantities of money for these dwellings that should have been finished in 2009, have formed a pressure group, with the full backing of the Town Hall. However, the Town Hall says that it also recognizes the difficult times that companies are operating in, many of whom have gone down the drain (gone bankrupt).
It is of the opinion of both the home-owner pressure group and the Town Hall that the building company and the project developer should offer clear explanations as to what is going on, instead of the ‘evasive’ attitude shown to date. For this reason the Town Hall has called for a joint meeting in Sevilla to clarify the situation.
The Mayor, Gonzalo fernández Pulido, believes that as well as giving the said explanations, the company should put an end to the situation by finishing off the housing for handing over, or by returning the money that has already been put down by the prospective home owners; he prefers the former, given the advance state of the said housing.
