Twenty-seven of the apartments are in Mallorca. | Pere Bota
On Tuesday, the Balearic housing minister, Josep Marí, signed the authorisation for the expropriation of 56 properties belonging to large owners. These are apartments which have been empty for two years or longer, are owned by banks and real-estate companies and have been registered as empty with the government; 27 are in Mallorca, 23 in Minorca and six in Ibiza. Once relevant procedures are completed, the properties will be for social rent by those who are on the Ibavi housing agency's waiting list.
