Sorry to be the bearer of bad news for any of  you who have bought off-plan on this complex.  There's an article on the This is London website (part of the Evening Standard newspaper).  Have copied and pasted the first para of the article, but have a look for yourselves.  (This forum won't allow me to attach the link as I haven't posted enough messges or something). 

'An exclusive Spanish development where up to a dozen British celebrities own properties could be bulldozed after being linked in a corruption scandal, it emerged today.

The Valle Romano complex -where leading Premiership stars Paul Robinson,   Michael Brown and David Bentley have homes - is being investigated as part of   Operation Astapa.

The scandal has so far seen the resignation of the Estepona mayor and 40 arrests,  including the boss of Valle Romano Luis Linares.'

Sounds pretty serious to me.  Had a bad experience with the Football Village last summer and after lots of aggravation and many months, managed to get our money back.

Diane

Thanks - this is more or less word for word what was said in the article that I was referring to.  It's stange though that the Village Romano website is still up and running as normal with no announcement made.  Also, as far as I am aware investors have not been notified formally.  A friend of mine who invested last year found out when I sent him the article and was absolutely stunned!  Not good practice I say.

I'm trying to write a PM, that's why I was quick.  I've got two EOS pages open to check up on threads as I'm writing.

Just click blue link for Valle Romano & add development then post the same as you do on here. It's pretty straightforward. 

Good luck.

Above this thread on far left you'll see "forums", hover on that & it shows "off plan development forums" (2nd down) click on that then on the Valle one you've just added. Post as you do here, on a thread already started or start another.

Hi

Just come across this blog site.

I have been reading some of the posts and I can confirm that we were told that as the development was given a tourist licence it was a condition that the Hotel Management was put in place. There were 2 rental guarantee schemes apparently.

the first one offerred a higher rate with no personal use and the second one offerred a lower rate with (I think) 8 or 9 weeks personal use which is the one I was going to take.

I understand that the Insurance policy would pay out if the development started late or was finished late but the Insurance company's argument was that it should only have to pay out if it finished late. However, accroding to Lexland the Court has agreed that it should pay out for starting late. My apartment was due to complete Spring 2009.

I have used Lexland for a business transaction recently and it has not gone well. Thier fees appear to be extortionate and I cannot see how the fees they wish to charge for actioning an Insurance policy can be justified.

Has everyone who bought used Lexland or are there other solicitors who have been used and are familiar with this case?

I would have expected it would have been pretty stratighforward to action an Insurance policy once the Court has decided the Insurer is liable. I was also told by Lexland that we would be entitled to recover costs and interest and compensation for (stress!). If the Court has decided that the Insurer is liable then surely it would be a simple matter of submitting a claim form to the Insurer? 

Stuart
