Problem

Exploitative property development

Incidence:

In Brussels it is a common practice for developers to buy blocks of houses (at low prices compared with land zoned for offices) and leave them to decay for some years. They then apply to change the land use to offices, persuading the public inquiry the houses are too decrepit to repair.
