FOUR squatters occupy a farm between Inca and Pollença in the north of Mallorca with police unable to clear them.

When local police and the Guardia Civil showed up, the persons claimed to have bought the property for €2000, however, the owners of the farm, called Can Panxeta, say this is not the case and are desperate to get back into their property.
They are horrified because they have not been able to get the criminals out for three weeks, one of them said. This could take months, while they also have to continue paying for electricity for the squatters.
Meanwhile, it became known that several of the squatters had been allegedly terrorising the residents of an apartment building in Palma’s Pere Garau neighbourhood, demanding that the city and the police act quickly.
There have been reports of daily fights, thefts and acts of violence in the building on Joan Mestre Street.
In Spain, it is difficult to get squatters out of flats because of an unclear legal situation.

      “In Spain, it is difficult to get squatters out of flats because of an unclear legal situation.”
      In this respect Spain is a third world country.
      I’ve been married to a Spaniard since 1972. We’ve lived in Spain since 1982. The situation with regard to squatters in 2121 is as bad as it’s ever been so don’t tell me that Spain is not a third world country. If the owner of the property occupied by squatters was a politician it would take approximately 3 minutes to get the squatters out.

      This will only get worse once the furlough scheme is over, those with no job or income will be forced to choose between paying their rent or eating. Not all property owners can afford this to happen, it will kill the property market once it makes the UK tabloids if Brexit wasn’t\t bad enough already
