Spanish Legal Reclaims
Reclaim Money, Recover Off-Plan Payments
Did you buy off-plan in the boom years of 2000 – 2008 only to lose out when your home was never built and the developer disappeared with your stage payments, leaving you with nothing to show for your money? If so, help is finally at hand from Spanish Legal Reclaims.
Spanish Legal Reclaims (SLR) has already helped numerous people recover hundreds of thousands of pounds. They are geared up to take on banks defended by some of the most powerful legal teams in Spain. They have spent over a year putting in place a legal operation to claim back lost deposits and stage payments from banks all over Spain.
You are not alone
SLR estimate there are 130,000 people in the UK eligible to make a claim with a total pot of £5.3 billion to recover.
Like Malcolm Young, 56, from Northamptonshire:
“After putting down more than €130,000 in 2004 as a deposit for two apartments in Marbella, I was looking forward to spending my holidays in the sunshine with my family. However, I soon learnt that the entire development had been built without the appropriate planning permission, meaning my investment was completely worthless.
“Fortunately, I stumbled on the right Spanish lawyer, now working for Spanish Legal Reclaims, who guided us through the process and got all my deposit back plus the accumulated interest. The exchange rate movement did me a favour too!”
How long do claims take to win?
Valid claims take on average 12-15 months to process from initial consultation to clients having the money back in their bank account.
What’s success rate?
98% in off-plan deposit recovery claims handled by Spanish Legal Reclaims
How much can you get back?
Successful claimants get back their deposit back plus legal interest of 4.5% per annum, minus SLR’s fee.
Luis Cuervo, CEO, Spanish Legal Reclaims, says:
“Brits have to fight in order to claim their money back, and that’s where we come in. We’ve had huge success helping people secure the funds that are rightfully theirs and urge the thousands of people who haven’t yet made a claim to start the process. Our team of specialists across Spain understand how to win, and importantly, how to make the process easy and transparent for clients trying to recoup their money.”
How much will it cost?
SLR charge nothing upfront, just a percentage of the money they get back for you if they win (no-win-no-fee). Because successful claims often come with legal interest accrued over time, many clients can expect to get back more money than they lost, even after fees are deducted. Note, however, that if you lose your case, you have to pay court fees, even if you don’t have to pay SLR anything. But SLR will not take on cases they don’t think they can win, and also offer their clients the option of ‘no costs whatsoever’ in return for a higher success fee, for those who don’t want to take any risk of court fees, no matter how small.
