I would just like to say a big thank you to Maria del Castro and her team for helping me with a difficult legal matter regarding a Usufructo recently. They were friendly, professional and couldn't have done more to help! 

(NB Usufucto is sort of like sitting tenant, where they have bought the right to use the property for their lifetime and the actual 'bare - or freehold' owner cannot force the leaseholder to sell their share not be forced out to live somewhere else.)

I am sorry to say that my experience has not been so good. The judge gave the banks more time, as such, my case has been waiting an additional three and a half years, that is, after wainting a long time to go to court in the first place. Has anyone else experienced this? Is there a way to appeal this to get the case into the courts again or push them somehow?

What level are you at in the litigation process? First instance, appeal? The procurator should be keeping your lawyer informed and I assume your lawyer has the facility to bring any major delay to the attention of the General Council of the Judiciary, who I think are bound to reply following a complaint. But you need to ask your lawyer exactly what is the reason for the delay. 

What region is your court? Some regions appear to be suffering worse delays than others.

The court is Estepona, this was the first hearing and the bank asked for more time, which the judge gave, that was over three years ago now. I have asked Costa Luz on several occations to compain and push this, they say they sent a letter but they also say they cannot push otherwise as there is no mechanism to.

Estepona is sadly one of the worst in terms of timeframes I'm afraid, which is why I was suggesting the need for this to be reported to try and gain additional resources for this particular region.

Only when this is consistently reported through official channels will there ever be the possibility for a case for extra Government resource to be made available, to accommodate the ever growing lawsuits coming before the judiciary in this region.

Governments are bound by rule of law thus:

1. Accountability
The government as well as private actors are accountable under the law.

2. Just Laws
The laws are clear, publicized, stable, and just; are applied evenly; and protect fundamental rights, including the security of persons and property and certain core human rights.

3. Open Government
The processes by which the laws are enacted, administered, and enforced are accessible, fair, and efficient.

4. Accessible & Impartial Dispute Resolution
Justice is delivered timely by competent, ethical, and independent representatives and neutrals who are accessible, have adequate resources, and reflect the makeup of the communities they serve.

If this level of delays is now deemed contrary to the rule of law, is this being consistently reported and recorded by lawfirms to higher bodies?

If the current reporting and monitoring system is not working effectively to gain the necessary additional resources, (to the benefit of all, judiciary, court administrators, lawyers, clients alike), then surely this needs to be reported to the powers that be?
