Thanks Maria. I suspected every thing you point out above. It's not an uncommon practice BTW in any country. It happens.Basically it was a lovely idea but really badly built. Terrible architecture, the architect should be strung up. And part of that was that they didn't provide a big enough well for the development. And the developer set the maintenance charges are rock bottom, to sell the units. So you get cheapjack administration with zero budget. A lot of units bought by people who live in the US and just wanted to make money doing AirBnB. The bottom has dropped out of the AirBnB market, interest rates have gone up and now there's no water most of the time. So none of these owners want to put their hands in their pockets to come up with a solution. It ends up a complete mess.
Hopefully the developers held on to a number of the units and they too will need to dig into their pockets to save the whole big kahuna.
