That it PRECISELY why we are not going down that route. It is costing us more money as it is with new lawyers to try and get OUR money returned to us. (ludicrous)! We have been advised (right or wrong?) that even though we should win the case, we are unlikely to have all our (getting bigger by the day!)costs paid to us…unlike the same scenario(which under UK law would not happen) in the UK.
As Paul says, it is down to the Spanish government not legislating against these people and enforcing the law. It is a joke!! But then why would they? they get a huge revenue from us. !
