Aifos loses the judgement against a real estate who spoke in the Sunday Times of the delays and bad practices of the company.
Real Estate Agent D.G received a demand for 60.000 euros on 13th March of this year due to article written in the Times by journalist John Arlidge.
The article spoke of the swindles and frauds concerning British investors.
The article affirms that around 2,500 British had undergone the bad practices of Aifos.
At the time of selling D.G. said that Aifos “takes the deposits and assures the buyers that a work licence is a formality.”
D.G put the case in the hands of Lawbird.

I was approached last week by this company to sell a development in Costa Blanca. I mentioned about anecdotal evidence that Aifos had a bad reputation and were leaving clients in the lurch – specifically on the subject of trying to force clients into completing withut LFO’s
I was even quoted the law of administrative silece which I contested and mentioned I thik they should keep up to date with their information because I dont theink AO is relevant anymore
I was assured that this was no longer the case and since moving to the UK Aifos have really cleaned up their act. It would appear that this is not the case.
There are many developers locally who do actually do a very good job and do not complete withut an LFO – they understand that it is wrong and wont force anyone. So I am thankful for the warning here although would have taken some convincing that theyhad changed their spots – I now will never be convinced.
Thnaks Dorothy for the heads up

If you want more reason not to deal with this company, have a look at the MANY pages and articles on
Also the Spanish site

……..well done lawbird, can there be any court in the land that has any doubt about the developers in question’s integrity?, you would think that any case against them would be a virtual foregone conclusion, with the huge amount of evidence agaist them!

I was at the property investment show at Excel London. Aifos was very much present there.
