21 February 2017 @ 12:28

Murcia – Trampolin Hills

As a direct result of the Preliminary Diligences procedure filed in the Mercantile Court No.1 in Murcia regarding Trampolin Hills, the following conclusions and evidences were obtained by the Costaluz-Decastro legal teams:

  • Existence of Special accounts in La Caixa, Cajamar and Banco de Sabadell
  • Existence of two guarantee instruments: (1) by Caixa, office located in Santa Catalina, Murcia, (2) By Swiss Financial Corporation, which is illegal as the entity is not authorized in Spain.
  • Possibility of making all companies of the Trampolin Group liable of same breaches.

Caixa plays an important role in regards to liabilities of off plan advanced payments in this development as, together with holding one special account, it issued a guarantee instrument for the refund of off-plan amounts. These instruments, according to recent Case law by the Supreme Court cannot have financial or time limits.

The last Court sentences in Murcia regarding “in vigilando” obligations of banks who received off plan amounts in their accounts are as follows. All of them mention recent decisions by the Supreme Court:

SAP Murcia 4 08/09/2016: STS 16 January, 30 April & 21 December 2015: It explains the full doctrine of the Supreme Court with regards to vigilance and due diligences that must be performed by Banks receiving off plan deposits.
