The place is still abandoned and getting worse to look at. About four o'clock yesterday all I saw was two security guards having a chat (change of shift?) and and old bloke who looked like a gardener. Meanwhile the weeds continue to grow.

thanks cubsur...
meeting our solicitor next week. we decided to go the legal route recently...you seek court protection for your investment so that our apartment can't be auctioned off in the future. in the 6 months since we were at court...we have managed to get a court number...why do things move so slowly!!!!
i think there is a public action on 2nd june selling one of the retail units...

Looks like they have stopped some basic maintenance and weeds are taking over. They've stopped watering the grass also.

If Cubby says there are cracks beginning to show, maybe that is why it was not granted a habitation license, maybe it is actually not built to a satisfactory standard and not safe!

Went for a walk this afternoon. Included Oceanville in my itinerary. Creepy. Sprinklers are sprinkling, grass is being cut. Not a souls to be seen at 4pm, no security, no nothing. The site seems to be in good order generally but a close inspection reveals that, literally in some cases, the cracks are starting to show.

You know me so well Poli LOL...
 
You are right Avril of course, that would be the sensible thing to do, but I think somewhere along the line the developers stopped scratching the right backs, and suddenly their project became a problem. They probably already made enough money to cover their expenses on the project, so they are in no hurry to make it up with whoever they have upset, because that would mean someone admitting they were at fault, and anyone who knows the Portuguese knows that just isn't going to happen...

Avril I am sure Perry will have a comment to make about your latter comment. I too think its stupid and agree with you, but thats the Portuguese beaurocracy (spelling) for you. I just feel so sorry for folks who have invested their hard earned money into this project only to see it go belly up.

Good god! We put our savings into a second home in albufeira and funded the difference with a mortgage, luckily for us it has worked out very well. However, if we'd have bought in oceanville (and we were approoached by, I think MRI at the time, though I may be wrong) we'd have probably been in financial trouble by now!! The place does look well kept and would it not be in the camara's interest to pass the habitation licence and start to get money from the owners as opposed to nothing?
