Title: Expropriate of scrubland and pine.
Post by Robors2 on Jan 13th, 2016 at 8:46pm
Just had some news about the farm I am buying.

Is this common practice in Catalonia that government can take away part of your land just because nobody worked on the land for years and some pines managed  be seeded from neighboring natural park?????  >:(

I would advise you to speak to a solicitor.

A proper sytem for land registration is quite new in Spain. That is why a lot of land is not properly registered. Often land is used by a private owner, but not registred on his or her name. Formally the land will then be registred as owned by the government.

My finca was partly registered as private and partly not registred. The non-registred part was in a natura 2000 area and -because of the lack of private registred owner-, registered on the governement.

In the process of buying and registering my finca there was made a public delaration to give anyone the option to claim the unregistered part. No one made a legal claim within in a month and so it become legally mine.

As Rita already pointed out: a solicitor (or a notary) can tell you what to do in your case.

Good luck,
Mark

Thanks,

Apparently it's going to take about one month to get a certificate from  Department of Environment to asses the final boundaries of this finca.
In the meantime I will try to speak to Ton Battle see what he can do.

Cheers
Rob

Just to update and put closure to this topic.

Still on the look out for a decent finca with Legal house.
