I just received a large sum for the principal  today in my bank from White Boas. The legal costs and court expenses were dedcuted @ 16k euros.
 
The banco popular appealed full interest for 11 years and won & the court did not award us legal costs. So we have paid to take out an appeal for both as they add up to nearly 60% of the principal. I am told that will take time again .. but at least we have received a substantial part of our money back. Carlos thinks we have a good case - worth a go!!  Though the Bank could be awarded costs if we lose!!
 
The final court judgement was in mid November - so it took 6 months to get the principle back!!!
 
I was worried as our deposit was quite larger than most - we would struggle to get it back or the bank might go into liquidation with all these claims being paid now or just stall forever!
 
We had no Bank Guarantee.
 
So everyone just keep going or if you have not started legal action - do so now. I would recommend White Boas.
 
I hope 2017 is a better year for everyone!!
 
John

Congratulations John.  It was a long time coming but at least you have most of your money back now. With the euro to sterling rate like it is now you probably have received, after legal fees, about what you paid out and with the possibility of getting more back later.  The worse thing must be the years of worry and frustration that you would never get anything back.

Yes, well done John, it's heartening news.

i wonder why the costs are so expensive though, the court fees aren't that large, and the lawyers seem to work from a set template for most cases of this nature now, thanks to preceding cases.

i sometimes wonder if it's better to negotiate the fee with a lawyer and let the court know we are happy with each party paying own costs if deposit and interest is awarded.    It may save on appeal grounds?

Great news, well done John.

We used White Baos and were very impressed. 

I hope you do get the full interest, I can't see how the bank won their appeal. We were awarded full interest of 11 years and a proportion of the costs as we were part of a group action. 

Overall we came out about even taking into acount the interest I have paid on the money over the 11 years so we were very happy

Good luck on the appeal

Gazza

Well done John that's encouraging news for all,

We are with W B and just had a court hearing 9th May claiming back deposit from Banco Poular. Now have to have a second hearing in case the bank wants to appeal !! (really) Why does this bank and others put people through this instead of paying up. This is not their money they are holding, so wrong, Anyway bad press again for Banco P.

Well done John,thats great news for you.

We have finally been to court last week and now have to wait for the outcome.

We met Carlos at court he was very nice and we felt very confident,it was nice to actualy speak to him. He explained what was going to happen in the court and was very reasuring and honest,he went through everything with us and had everything in place for the judge, he was very professional which we were happy with. 

Ufortunately Its a waiting game now as we were told it cold take months to get answers. We cant wait for the day we get the email through with some good news, it has to come to an end soon and we get justice.

Thanks Trudge

We appealed for the legal costs - but lost.

We are awaiting to see if the Bank appeals the Interest again and then for the Court to calculate the Interest.So there will be a wait for the Interest payment.  I refused to spend any more money appealing the legal costs to the Supreme Court. It cost us about 1000 euros in costs to appeal in the local court. If we went to the Supreme Court - there would be extra costs if we lost - so I did not want to spend any more money this!

By the time we get the full Interest - then we will have just got a bit over what we spent on purchase and additional legal fees/other costs over the years.

I will post when we have an update on the Interest.

John

More Good News.

I have been using this site and reading the threads for a number of years.

I don’t often comment but as today is a special day I have decided to share.

Like a lot of you we spent our hard earned cash 13 years ago on a pile of rubble. For a long time I never thought we would ever see our money returned.

Every so often there was a glimmer of light on these threads with people talking about winning.

Well today we have received into our Bank Account most of the money we spent in the first stage payments !!

In April the court awarded us 1st stage payment all interest and all court fees. Banco Popular appealed !

So we have our money less the interest and court & solicitor fees.

We are appealing this decision !

However we have won our case and have a substantial amount of money back.

We had no Bank Guarantee.

We used Carlos Boas of White Boas. He has been really helpful from when I first met him 3 years ago.

If you have not started a claim, then you must do it. I would highly recommend using White Boas.

We are so happy !!

Hello Annm,

yes April this year we had the decision, the bank appealed about interest. Our solicitor then asked for the principle to be paid whilst we wait the outcome of the rest. 

So we have the 1st stage payment in our bank. We now wait to see what happens with the banks appeal over the rest. 

Did you win your case with interest and fees or just the 1st stage payment ?

Hi Madhouse

Well done on getting most of your money back. We also used White Baos and were very pleased with their services. The process was slow but this wasn't down to them.

We managed to get all our money back, plus interest and also some of the legal costs. Overall we came out about even with the Euro rate dropping.

Garry

Much the same position as many others. Our case went to court 9th May (we did not have to attend) Won the case in June. Bank has appealed the interest and costs and has to do this within 20 days. Which has nearly elapsed. We will get back for definate our initial deposit returned with no bank gaurantee. But wait and see if we get the Interest and costs added.

We will all get returned what is rightfully ours soon, keep up the fight.

and now that Banco unPopular have folded under and being taken over by Santander things may be resolved much quicker hopefully. Santander won't want this liggering over them and their good reputation!

Carlos is Brilliant.
