The Patronato De Reducacion Provincial

Yesterday I received a demand from The Patronato De Reducacion Provincial for quite large sum of money.

I visited the office in Nerja and was told that the Valor Catastral of my house has been increased to comply with some law decreed by National, not Local Government.

The result is an increase of 38% back-dated four years.

I asked if mine was the only property affected and was told no, so far 1700 properties in Nerja have been re-assessed.

Next year more will follow.

When I asked how properties were chosen for re-assessment I could not get an answer.

Has anyone else been affected?
