A LOCAL man is offering a business premises rent free to any deserving applicant willing to work their socks off during the present crisis.
The contract term will be either until unemployment, now standing at 4.75 million, has been reduced by one million, or three years, whichever comes first.
This inspired and patriotic move is in direct contrast to the general attitude adopted by some landlords who refuse to negotiate the often exorbitantly high rental costs or terms of repayment set in more affluent times, resulting in thousands of premises left standing empty, creating less job opportunities and loss of local revenue. Camps, aged 36, who lives in the Costa Blanca town of Denia, told the EWN, “We believe times are changing and we must dispense with our inherent attitudes to do our bit to help the country get back on its feet.
“At the end of the day we need to generate local wealth and we believe what is good for our future tenant will also be good for us and that at the end of the rent free period, our client will want to stay with us and pay a fair market price for the property.”
To date, Jorge has received hundreds of visits on his website advertising his195 m2 of shop space, conveniently located under an apartment block in the nearby town of Javea.
Last February, Javea government announced their own initiative in trying to attract new business to the town by reducing red tape paperwork formalities and cancelling start-up costs by up to €1,000.
The EWN contacted the local council requesting comment on Jorge Camps extraordinary support for both the town and his country’s future. Unfortunately no comment was available as the main town players were heavily committed with local fiesta activities
