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.
This decision will apply to properties that were left uncompleted or where building never started at all.
The precise number of people affected by this legal development is unknown but could hit 6 figures according to a BBC report.
Slee Blackwell Solicitors have been working with Spanish Abogados (lawyers) based in Madrid and Alicante for some months to enable claimants in Britain to recover compensation in Spain on a No Win, No Fee basis.
