Rich or poor, famous or not, more and more members of the European community in the Balearics are calling on the regional and local authorities to solve the mysteries surrounding the rules and regulations, especially in the property sector, and make it clear what the norms are. While the Balearic government and the Insular Council of Majorca are bending over backwards to accommodate the much-needed army of immigrant workers, without whom the Balearic economy will be unable to continue booming, European residents in Majorca are complaining that they have nowhere to go and no one to turn to for advice on their rights and on the regulations. From bringing a foreign plated car to the island or adding an extension to a property, it is becoming increasingly clear that very few people know exactly where they stand. The European Union may well have a free legal advice office in Madrid, with a new one opening in Barcelona shortly, but demand warrants an office in Palma. With the problems Virgin tycoon Richard Branson is having in his attempt to develop “the most beautiful hotel in Europe” in Majorca and the wrangling over German tennis star Boris Becker's Arta farmhouse obviously grabbing the attention, there are many other poeople fighting the same battles.
