Brits to Claim Holiday Home Deposit Compensation from Spanish Banks

The dream of owning a Spanish holiday home in the sun turned into a nightmare for thousands of British people when property developers across Spain went bust during the recession.

However, the British investors who lost substantial deposits have now been given hope of recovering their money by the Spanish courts.

Judges in Spain have said that people who lost money when ‘off-plan’ developments failed to be built are entitled to claim financial redress from the Spanish banks who failed to protect the deposits.

Property Law: Seller's lawyers owe duty of care to buyer

Professional negligence lawyer, Emma Slade, looks at a recent court decision in which a firm of solicitors dealing with a property transaction were held liable for negligence and financial loss suffered by a party who was not their client.

Legal protection for cosmetic surgery patients

The General Medical Council is introducing new rules designed to offer greater protection to patients undergoing cosmetic procedures in this country.

The rules, which come into force in June and apply to both private clinics and the NHS, are aimed at ensuring patients are not rushed or pressured into having cosmetic surgery.

Marketing promotions such as two-for-one offers are to be banned and any doctors found to be in breach of the rules will face being struck off the medical register.

Recently, a Welsh gentleman pleaded guilty to bigamy following his second marriage. He had apparently used an online divorce service for which he’d paid £600 in fees and believed that he was divorced.
