What the site failed to mention was that many of them had been built illegally due to corrupt mayors, lawyers and developers and that unwary buyers could end up buying a house that would eventually have to be demolished.

There have been stories in the UK press about people being evicted and houses they bought torn down, through no fault of their own.
Has this same fate occurred to other nationalities such as the Dutch, Germans, Scandinavians etc. who have invested heavily on the Costas?
