    A Promotor has been ordered by the court to pay 78000 euro to owners of 7 villas in Estepona. There were various defects including ceilings that collapsed. 35 British owners were affected but only 7 decided to proceed with legal action. Took a few years but they got there 😀

    good news indeed, but what a shame only 7 took action? The developer might think that 20% complaining wasn’t a bad result for them either?

    Forgot to add in the quick summary…..The Developer liquidated the Company shortly after completing the villas, he must have known there were defects!

    They always know about defects, in civilised countries one can have access to the construction blue book where any building omission is detailed. But I guess in Spain that would be Top Secret. 🙄

    Yes, great news indeed.
    But how sad these crooks have to be dragged kicking and screaming to court before they pay any form of compensation that is rightfully due.

    And no doubt now will be the next party game – Appeal.

    exactly. Where are the common sense regulations to stop this kind of rubbish being built?, and where are the penalties that would make a developer think twice about even trying to cheat and con people out of more money?, and where is the common sense that says appeal should not be an option in this instance?

    Once again I despair of the Spanish system, it really is bloody pathetic in cases like this, and just encourages the low-life we all know about. If Spain still wont do the right thing after having so long to put its house in order, then surely EU intervention must be considered?

    and where are the common sense people who don’t hand over £50K/£100K/£150K on the basis of a glossy pdf brochure and a quick looky around a field?.

    Perhaps EU ‘plonker’ legislation should be introduced, their passports should be stamped ‘plonker’, so when they enter the country the Spanish police could identify them, stop them, and make them turn back if they are going within 10 miles of field with a sign up saying ‘luxury homes’ and bulldozer on it, they could also have their bank accounts frozen and credit cards removed.

    In that case i know a few Spanish plonkers then who bought in a new block of apartments. All looked fine until they started to use the air-con and found that the pipes lead into the…..walls. Lovely indoors rain effect and stained/damp patches everywhere.

    That developer wrapped up his company just as the building was completed. He has since retired and doesn’t want to know anything more about the building. There is not one British owner in the building.

    It’s not only the British who suffer in these types of cases.

    yes, a good point. The whole corruption/lack of regulation/poor justice thing has effected Spanish as well as English and other nations. So many have clearly been cheated that new reports and evidence come out almost every day, and what’s being done? Those on here who still prefer to blame the victims really haven’t got a clue, or if they have will stoop to any level to peddle their lies about who’s really guilty. All to familiar to those wronged.
