The authorities in Mijas town hall have announced plans to seize the real-estate holdings of people within the town that have failed to pay local taxes and fees.

The embargoes are aimed at people who have repeatedly ignored requests for payment, officials said.

Over 2,000 properties are facing the embargo including homes, business premises and garage spaces.  “There are more than 2,000 properties in this situation in Mijas,” said the town hall in a written statement.  Affected owners have been notified of the pending seizure.

“We don’t like these types of measures but we must guarantee the provision of municipal public services,” said the councillor for the economy and taxes, Mario Bravo.

Bravo also added that the affected owners “still have time to avoid the embargoes” by paying their debts.
