The SAAL cooperative Carlos Botelho belongs to the governmental initiative called GABIP and Ex-SAAL that tries to revive former SAAL initiatives.
Unfortunately defalcation of money exacerbates the process and it is unclear if the cooperative will surrender. In fact the situation now is that the ground of the buildings belongs to the municipality, whereas the apartments belong to the people. That leads to conflicting wonership relationships and to the degradation of frontyards and facades.
Nonetheless some of the houses are quite well maintained and facades were painted without municipal consent.
