Reply To: Lawyer Problems and Indemnity


Draken – Are you saying that any cash payment is not recoverable at all because it is not mentioned in the contract.

I was told by the solicitors office manager that everyone does it in Spain and was positively encouraged to make the cash payment. I also have a copy of the instructions on the solicitors notepaper.

Have I done anything that is illegal?

Shouldn’t the lawyer have told me “dont do this it is against Spanish Law”? Had I been advised properly I would not have got involved in any cash payment.

On the other hand perhaps I was foolish and should have seen through it!
