JANET HAYDEN, a 70-year-old British woman who is due to be evicted from her home in La Viñuela on April 4, has announced that she is now on hunger strike, claiming that her bank has failed to even discuss the subject.
Ms Hayden, who featured in last week’s Euro Weekly News, owes thousands following a series of problems with the property. She is asking her bank, Sabadell, to allow her to pay rent to remain in her home, and says she cannot afford to find anywhere else to live, but they are refusing to negotiate.
She bought the land on which the house was built in 2003 and was immediately told that the land could not be built on, but her legal advisers informed her of a loophole that could be exploited if she paid a small charge.
Having been quoted construction costs of €270,000, she was astonished when the final price turned out to be €536,000, forcing her to take out loans with the bank in order to pay for her home.
It subsequently emerged that the house had been built on unstable land, and it was soon plagued with structural issues such as cracked walls and even a sinkhole under one corner.
Ms Hayden was then shocked to find that the standard 10-year new build insurance had not been arranged by her legal advisers.
Already suffering from a potentially fatal heart condition, hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, Janet, has not eaten since March 1 and says she “will continue indefinitely until Sabadell agree to a meeting.”
