hey watchy, thanks for making my morning!

each to their own and all that, but the final 6 words of your rant had me spitting coffee over my brunch!

do you have a chill pill I could borrow until I get back to the asylum?

Thread: is it wise to move to Spain post Brexit

Dear ads & maria,

As a layman, am I right in thinking that there may be some compensation available from ATLAS because of the financial and emotional trauma caused by them, even if it was 11 or 12 years ago?

It's a shame that the boffins, legal eagles and champions of the robbed weren't as high profile or prevalent back in 2005 when Atlas stitched me up.

They took a £38,000 50% deposit for a 2 bed apartment in a Benijofar complex called Triana(?), next to the Citroen garage.

With completion due for Dec 2004, we were happy to wait. But, guess what, the place was never built and despite promises and free flights to inspect the area and look at possible (dearer) alternatives, the builders never did more than cordon off the area with tape.

It took visits to exhibitions and threats of upstaging them at the Place In The Sun Exhibition to make any progress. After writing to every property programme on TV and outing them on every forum going, they eventually relented and returned the £38k - if we signed a gagging agreement.

The gagging agreement was a point of annoyance, but the lack of interest back on that money and the fact that decent properties were so much more expensive because of the ever-increasing property bubble just rubbed salt into the wound. I'd love to know about the 47 other families that would've also been ripped off.

Thinking back, I was a fool to fall for the patter. However, it's difficult to comprehend that so many people and so many companies were in on the ruse. When you're looking for advice and support from your fellow man, it's a shame on humanity.

johnzx, you raise a valid point which I hadn't thought of previously (the fact that non EU folk own and live or rent in Spain) with the same issues as Brits.

So, how would it change, if / when Article 50 ever comes to fruition and the loonies that voted for it get their way?

It's a tricky one, as no other country has left the EU before the way that UK is having to. Maybe it will be more difficult to get a driving licence?

I, for one, can't wait! I've had a place in Formentera del Segura for over 10 years. Love the village, love the lifestyle, love the climate, love it all!

Let's just hope that Theresa May takes an age to get Article 50 kicked off. For the time being, the status quo suits me fine. Although it would be nice to see a return to pre-Brexit exchange rates!

heyhey, just thought I'd revive this old thread.


It's been a few years, but I wonder if the likes of Twinmummumy and other posters that were active on this thread earlier are still around. I still have my apartment in Formentera, although SiChez is now just Si since I've divorced from Chez!

take care, all the best!

Thread: any opinions on Formentera del Segura ?
