We have produced an email which we would like you to forward to everyone who may be sympathetic to our situation. Remember, the greater our numbers the louder our voice will be. If there are people in your contact list who you think may be happy to sign-up as a Friend of SOHA, please send the email to them. Thank you.
You have received this email because somebody in your contact/address book thought you may be interested in our plight and has therefore forwarded it to you.
Did you know that the Juntas (regional governments of Spain) are challenging the legality of thousands of licences issued by numerous Town Halls over the last decade or so?
For more information please have a look at some of the articles about Helen and Len Prior on our website and also in national and international press.
These licences were applied for and issued legally with all fees and taxes paid but are now on the danger list.
The Junta claims that the Town Halls should not have issued the licences and therefore they are taking the local Town Halls to court and retrospectively cancelling the licences before going on to apply for demolition orders.
We are a group of private home owners here in the Axarquia region of Spain, who are affected by this process.
We live in the houses that are involved and we face the prospect of having our licences revoked and ultimately having our homes demolished even though we have acted entirely properly and legally throughout.
We have formed an official action group (SOHA) to help and support each other and to try and stop this action of the Junta.
There are a number of similar groups being formed across Spain as the Junta in other areas are also acting without any care or consideration of the innocent owners, who also face the prospect of their homes being demolished.
Our aim is to provide help and support to anyone who may be facing the threat of demolition, whilst continuing to campaign for an end to this unreasonable and devastating practice.
Obviously the more members we have, the louder our voice will be and the more difficult it will be for our concerns to be ignored.
For this reason we are trying to bolster support for our organisation by having a class of membership called “Friend of SOHA”.
Membership is free and open to anyone, from any country, who feels that we are being unfairly treated and would like to add their name to our list of supporters. If you would like to become a Friend of SOHA please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org stating your name, your location and whether or not you wish to be included on our mailing list for news and future developments.
We very much hope that you will help us in our efforts to bring an end to this unreasonable and potentially devastating practice.
If you would like any more information before deciding, please refer to our website at www.soha.es
Finally and if it’s not too much trouble, we would be extremely grateful if you would forward this email to those people in your contact list who you think may also be happy to sign-up as a Friend of SOHA.
Thank you very much for your consideration.
