Thread: How to contact Maria de Castro

Hi Gill,

We have still not heard from our lawyer regarding the result of our court case on 20.10.2020 although they did promise to contact us within a few days of it taking place.

Quite honestly, since they did not send us any details of the place,time and case number , I am inclined to think it was cancelled because of the pandemic. 

We were told that our attendance was not necessary and because of the COVID situation we were happy about that.

We too saw the offer of a discount if we joined forces with other claimants but we thought the whole procedure was complicated enough without adding to it. 

I can only imagine the struggle you have had over the past years and the effect it had on your mental health. As you say they are aware of the stress we claimants have been under. They talk the talk Gill to any prospective clients or potential advertising agencies but it is action we need.........and the full return of our funds. After all we dId nothing wrong except have a dream.
Take care Gill and stay safe.xx

On Tuesday 20th October 2020 the Judge has scheduled a Final Hearing in our case against Banco Popular. 
In April 2005 we paid our initial deposit to Banco Pastor (who were subsequently taken over by Banco Popular) for an apartment that was promised to be completed by Christmas that year.

In June 2008 after a visit to the local planning department we cancelled the contract and engaged Maria at Costa Luz Lawyers to take up our case for the return of our deposit plus our substantial stage payment..

We were on the verge of selling our home to meet the cost of completing the purchase when, after the  visit to the local planning department, we discovered that all the assurances given by the builders of the imminent  handing over of our property were far from the truth. 

Funds (obtained via a charge on our home) that  we transferred to Spain in readiness for the move were swiftly repatriated and the legal process started for return of our deposit. We had had enough of the delays, excuses and downright lies from both the developer and our crooked lawyers who failed to obtain the promised ,and contracted, Bank Guarantee.

It has been a long, stressful  and expensive slog to get to this stage.
Our retirement plans were completely destroyed but we are now hopeful of a  fair and final judgement and most of all closure to the whole debacle.

“Just imagine you go to the bank and get a personal loan for €40,000 can you have the money there and then and promise the bank you will come back in 30/40 days to sign the paperwork.”


Yes, just imagine!

I have come to the conclusion that the banks dictated the the Supreme Courts latest ruling.
