Sewage rising up into the shower, sinking swimming pools and houses without electricity or gas, these are only a few of the problems plaguing buyers of their so-called 'dream' homes in Mollina.
Patios unpaved, gardens strewn with bricks and rubble, and cracks and mould that keep appearing in the walls, to say the owners are unhappy would be an understatement.
But this is just what a series of neighbours claim they are left with two years after they took possession of their properties on the Mollina Hills urbanisation on the edge of the fast-growing town, ten minutes north of Antequera.
'We came out here thinking that this would be our dream home,' said Nino Bondonno, who moved into the four-bed property with his partner Pauline Bartlett two years ago.
'But what we are confronted with is a house riddled with problems surrounded by a building site. We are absolutely gutted.'

A group of 20 British nationals complained that the homes they had made down payments upon have gone unfinished.
Now, the two managing directors of constructors Grupo Mirador – brothers Enrique and Leopoldo Faura – will declare in front of judges on January 24 on charges of fraud.
Also charged was agency Palmera Properties, which was marketing the three-bedroom terraced houses.
The charges relate to the 90-home Mirador de Fuente Piedra complex near Antequera.
In April 2003, the group of 20 buyers paid deposits of up to 88,000 euros each on the off-plan property.
Five years later, the group has not yet taken ownership of their homes.
As part of the agency fee, Palmera Properties – which also marketed an uncompleted housing complex in La Alpujarra retained a commission of 3,500 euros when the clients made their initial down payments.
During the investigation, judges heard how the clients were offered a banker’s guarantee – a surety that protects the buyer in case homes go unfinished – with the Panama-based Caja Hipotecaria Centro Sur, which is currently under sanction by the Bank of Spain.
Fuente de Piedra mayor Cristóbal Fernández, the municipal architect and council secretary have been ordered to appear as witnesses.
