Here we go again …
 
 
 
 
Note the words
 
'within walking distance of the magnificent Santa Maria 18 hole golf course and its golf shop selling items such as …'
 

Buyer Beware couldn’t be more apt.

 

None of the photographs are of the development. They are nothing to do with the development. Completely different apartment in another area – the one we were shown around as being an example of the quality of an Eralia build and which lured us in.

The golf course also is nothing to do with the development. Google Earth it and you will see.

Nothing changes – all you cynics out there are absobl..dylutely right.

Hi Ruth

I don't think this is the developer selling directly.

It seems to be an Agent called - Odyssey Property Investments Limited.

"As the leading specialists when it comes to purchasing properties in Santa Maria Green Hills we would like to welcome you to our comprehensive website, totally dedicated to this superb development.

As an established and reputable real estate company, we operate from offices in both Spain and the UK.  We are also accredited members of AIPP and NAEA meaning all members of our staff adhere to a Strict Code of Ethics and act in a professional manner at all times."

They say on the website that they are  members of the NAEA and AIPP.

You could report them to the NAEA and AIPP:

http://www.aipp.org.uk/

http://www.naea.co.uk/complaints/

This was always the problem with many of the off-plan developments.  It was not always the developer selling directly.

Many off-plan purchasers reserved through third party agents.  These agents, like the developers, were not controlled or supervised.  This now causes a problem regarding taking action according to LEY 57/68 against the developers bank as much fo the deposit money was paid to these agents & Lawyers.  The money then needs to be traced to the developers bank account.  That is not always easy as many agents & lawyers are either bankrupt/disappeared or if they are stil trading will not co-operate and provide the details.

In the future the Agents, Lawyers, Developers and Banks all need much stricter supervision and regulation.

Keith

Thank you Maria for your link to FACUA and Keith for the links to AIPP and NAEA you gave.
 
I’m fully aware that this advertisement was not the developer’s own but their agent’s. However, it will have been (or ought to have been) vetted and approved by the developer. If not, the developer should be suing the agent!
 
This particular advertisement is a total MISDESCRIPTION – and has been for the last 8 years. Nothing, absolutely nothing, is being learned by the property industry in Spain. Nothing is being learned by the government. They are a complete laughing stock and should be discredited on every count.
 
Has anyone reading the Forums had any dealings with the 3 organisations mentioned? Do they have teeth? Do they use them?
 
Some of us have virtually written ourselves into the ground over the years. And to no effect. I could be wrong here, but I want to put my energies now into approaching the government. Nothing will change until something happens at the very top. And if the Spanish government will not take the simple and reasonable actions we have been asking for, and taking them immediately, - special fast track courts to deal with property issues which clog the judicial system and banks taking legal responsibility for their bank guarantees/non-bank guarantees – then it really is time for the European Parliament to step in and withhold further grants or aid as called for by Cashman, Aitken, Helmer, Andreasen, et al for the last 5 years.
 
Enough is enough.
 
ruth

Thank you Keith for your all your good work and for educating us on the Spanish laws which are there for our protection and which the Spanish chose to ignore!  

I agree that this needs to be addressed at UK Government and European Parliament level.

We are the INNOCENT  victims of  the GREED and the CORRUPTION of Developers and Council Officials!

It is now 2 years since I lost my Lower Court case and having now lost in the High Court, I have written yet again to  -

my local MP and MEP, David Cameron PM, the Foreign Office and Alex Salmon, Scotland's First Minister.

Thanks for your kind words.

Yes, the Spanish Government continue to ignore LEY 57/68 and judges continue to have a poor intepretation of LEY 57/68 and therefore provide inconsistent judgements.  There is still a great lack of understanding regarding LEY 57/68.

Like you, many of us are the innocent victims of this scandal and we must continue to do everything possible to recover our money.

Keep the faith and keep applying the pressure.

Kind regards

Keith

Can anyone shed any light on this blog please?  It appears to have been posted on 26 June 2011.  The case?  Who, when, where?  What happened?
