Squatters Terrorise Village

Vélez de Benaudalla has a squatter problem that has been going on for a while and is causing quite a bit of consternation amongst its inhabitants.

COS Velez Benaudalla Panoramic 400x250The Mayor, Francisco Gutiérrez Bautita, confirms that at least four houses have been taken over by family clans that literally have the 2,870 inhabitants seriously worried.

For this reason he requests that all absentee homeowners in the village check that their property has not been taken over and if so denounce it before the Guardia Civil immediately.

He also recommends that if the house is not inhabitable, for the owners to brick up doors and windows. For houses that are inhabitable, the owners should acquire security alarms.

I spoke to one young woman, whose identity we won’t mention, and she told me how these same people that have taken over houses and refused to leave them, also come knocking on people’s door asking for food and that many people out of fear won’t even answer the door.
