Hi everyone just wanted to give those of you who are still trying to recover your money back from off plan properties in Spain some hope and that hope is Maria at Costaluz Lawyers !
I purchased an off plan property nearly four years ago through Medsea Estate Agents and at the time thought i had bought the dream how wrong was I !!!
The property was never completed after the recession kicked in and everyone from the builders ,Estate Agents and developers disappeared off the face of the earth ( not to mention the lawyer who was meant to be working for me who was recommended by Medsea who incidentally worked for the developers as well ! ) and i was left with a shell of a building which i assume is still the same to this day ! I was also left about £34000 out of pocket .
As i had ploughed all my savings into the property at the time i did not have enough funds to fight for my deposit back throught the Spanish courts so i returned to the UK and thought i would have to cut my losses and move on ,as i said that was nearly four years ago and it wasnt until May this year i was put onto Maria at Costaluz Lawyers from a friend who had purchased a property in Spain ,he said she was excellent and highly recommended her
As i now had enough money to fight my case i decided to contact Maria and i am so glad i did !
From the first email I Sent to Maria she replied promptly and immediately set my mind at rest that i had made the right decision by contacting her,she also explained step by step how we would go about fighting my case and what the timescales and fees would be.
Any questions i had for Maria however trivial were answered usually within minutes ( not unlike my previous lawyer who would reply to me about four weeks after i had contacted him ! ) .
Well it brings me to last month when I received an email out of the blue saying the insurers of my bank guarentee wanted to settle out of court ! I think shock was not the word as i really didnt expect this so soon , i decided to turn down the first offer and they dually came back with an improved offer which i decided to accept . the money was transferred into mybank account yesterday and i cannot be more happy ! incidentally i did not have my original bank guarantee but i did mange to obtain a copy which Maria used when dealing with the insurers .
So people there is light at the end of the tunnel and if you are looking for a good Spanish lawyer then look no further than maria and Costaluz Lawyers .
Thanks again Maria my faith in the Spanish legal system has been restored ! you do a fantastic job and i wish you all the best in the future and hope you continue your fight for the many Britsh people who have lost out on thousands of pounds over the last few years .
