    The property development company Aifos, who own the five star Guadalpin Hotel in Marbella have proposed the Town Hall take over the management and running of the facility instead of it being closed down…………………….

    “Aifos claim that the option of public management would also protect the owners of the business premises and apartments within the hotel”.

    Don’t tell me Aifos has a heart after all and actually gives a damn about anyone else……
    Am sure the elderly English lady who committed suicide because they screwed her out of all her money is resting far happier in her grave knowing that.

    They are such a scamming crowd Aifos! We sold a proeprty it was an off plan resale, to a spanish chap about 2 years ago. He got a great deal and signed the transfer from the ex purchaser in Aifos’s office in Madrid.

    At the time they couldnt find the stamp and said they would stamp the original and send onto him in the post – the oldest one, its not cheque in the post, its contract in the post!

    Anyway as its been delayed, the buyer decided to withdraw from the purchase and wants his deposit back

    Aifos have refused saying the contract is not in order and theres no official stamp on it!

    They take the proverbial out of their own countrymen too!

    I just can not believe it! he got off scot free basically and they say they did not have enough evidence against them for fraud…that is totally rubbish! The judge hearing the case must by joking. There have been so many cases against them for basically “fraud” mine being among them , the judges know full well what is going on but I think that there are so many in the web of decepition that they all have something to lose …If one goes down then he will bring the others down with him.
    Unbelievable!!!

    we are in the same position. Transfered to another development because building license never obtained, they of course still have your deposit, then refuse to give you it back, because they have refused to sign your new contract. Nice one eh!

    Nothing is to low for them. Our current lawyer sussed this a while ago and acted on the obvious scam. They have shot themselves in the foot with a whole string of lies that don’t even match their earlier lies.!!

    Had our first lawyer been any good, this would have been nipped in the bud long ago.

    Try this one for a cheek!
    When our solicitor formally asked through the notary for our money back thay had the cheek IN WRITING to ask our solicitor why we were making such a fuss in getting our deposit back? thay said “after all we already had a house to live in …in another country” those were their words and they even wrote it in a letter can you believe the audacity of them? After my dealings with them I would belive anything out of them, they will say or do anything to avoid paying back OUR money. The trick with them is to be prepared for anything and not be fazed by it, they do it to make you lose confidence….but it wont work!

    could anything they try, suprise us i wonder?

    I don’t know who is worse?, them for trying it on, or those who give them the time of day, when it’s so obvious they have a habit of being in the wrong!

    It makes me furious. The only reason they have got away with daylight robbery in the past, is because they been have allowed to, by those in a position of trust by the public, not doing their job. (for a number of reasons!!) How often have we heard this!

    I think the tide is turning, as cases going against them are mounting, but for heaven sake, how long does it take?

    Have I missed something here
    What cases are going against them ?
    How many have had their money back ?
    Does anyone really think we are winning ?

    Betty Boo has summed it up perfectly

    The trick with them is to be prepared for anything and not be fazed by it, they do it to make you lose confidence….but it wont work!

    Many will indeed loose confidence and many will think they have won cases and then chase shadows.
    No one case will be the same and judgements will almost never compare even on the same developments.
    As Betty Boo states ..but it wont work . But they think they will as the system is mainly on their side. 😈

    Other ‘arguments’ used in court:

    1. They were only investors – this, despite the build being illegal/no legal docs. etc.
    This has nothing to do with anything, a contract is a contract and if the developer doesn’t deliver they should return the deposit.

    2.How do we know it is a real doctor? On providing medical proof from a UK doctor (on headed notepaper) that to retire to a warmer climate would benefit a purchaser who had severe arthritis, hence the proof they weren’t ‘investing’ but retiring to Spain for health reasons.

    3. They needn’t have bought in Spain – they could have bought anywhere that has a warmer climate… This was an argument used to the same purchaser who only wanted their money back because it was an illegal build. I never did understand the logic of that ‘argument’.

    You couldn’t make it up……but the developers did!

    Frank –
    yes, point made that developers will try and come up with anything.
    But in this case the judge threw all their stupid arguments out and the purchaser won.
    And the money is now in their bank. 😉
