The High Court of the land has rejected the appeal lodged by the company that built Carmenes del Mar on Cerro Gordo (La Herradura).
Thus the H.C. has ratified the original court findings (Granada Provincial Law Court 2017) which made the construction company responsible for putting right all the deficiencies on the urbanización.
The 425 dwellings belonging to the urbanización were sold between 2001 and 2005 for around 100,000 euros a piece but since then some of the houses, as well as the access road, have been seriously affected by landslips.
It is very important to point out that only some of the houses have had structural problems and it is not the whole building complex that is on the move.
Now, with this Supreme Court findings the judicial process has come to a close with the Provincial Court’s sentence standing. That doesn’t mean that stabilisation work and repairs will begin immediately but it does mean that there will be no more judicial delays.
However, it is now a case of the Junta de Andalucía getting its finger out and putting into effect its own decree (2016) that classified the stabilisation work as an “emergency.”
