FLOOR CLAUSES, MORTGAGE EXPENSES AND OTHER ISSUES WITH YOUR BANK
Banks in Spain have become the number one cause of litigation all around the nation. From the floor clauses on your interest rate that impede you to enjoy the lowest Euribor rates in decades, illegal multi-currency mortgages, excessive penalty interests, to the unjust imposition of mortgage expenses on the consumer.
The list of abusive clauses the banks have been using is somewhat long and refunds can be claimed back. The whole litigation process might require one or two years, depending on the area and Court, but the delay will be worth it to enforce your rights and reclaim any amounts unlawfully paid.

Plusvalia is a tax paid to a Town Hall when selling a property. It is based on the cadastral value of the land, its increase over the years and the number of years since the property was purchased. Murcia and Orihuela Costa Town Halls including Torrevieja, Orihuela, Torre-Pacheco, San Javier or Cartagena, among others, have been demanding payment even when the loss in value is obvious. Thus, consumers are entitled to claim a refund, backed by various rulings, including several Supreme Court rulings.
This procedure might take a while because most Town Halls are not refunding anything
without litigation. However, we offer affordable quotes to make it worthwhile, don’t hesitate
to contact us for further information.
