José M spanish lawyer
You can no sue the spanish bank out of Spain, and the spanish bank has a hard work to sue you or seize you out of Spain
If you are sick and tired of them you could do nothing and forced them to spend money and time to sue you in UK. Probably they do not do it
In the other hand you could look for a lawyer in Spain who wants to take the job for a little money and only get the rest if successufull
I mean, you could deal with a lawyer to go to the supreme court just for a little cost and allow him a percent if win
In most cases lawyers take this kind of cases this way and you will be sure that the lawyer will do his best if he do not get pay if he fails
Think about it and ask for several budgets and decide what to do when you know the prices, riskes, and the rest of the information
At the end, if you do nothin or lose, the bank will get a hard way to seize you in UK
Ussually they do not do it
I could send you some names of spanish lawyers who could take your case dealing with you a price if winning and taking the case for a little money in advance
I will be here if needed
Hi Jose M
Thank you for your detailed reply.
My present lawyer is Costaluz Lawyers, Algeciras, Cadiz.
They inform me I must decide by 9 January (Friday) if I wish to appeal to the Supreme Court. The 20 days have elapsed due to not being informed of the Provisional Appeal Court decision until the 25 December and then not being able to contact my lawyers until the 6 January due to the Christmas holidays!
This now gives me no time to instruct a new lawyer to take on my case in the way you suggest.
If I do nothing what is the possibility that the bank (Banco Popular) will instruct a UK law firm to sue me for the outstanding money (57,500euro)?
You have no time really to decide and if you don not have it and you can no affort the expenses your lawyer requires, could be better to let it go
Banco Popular will find very hard to sue you in UK
I think your best will be let it go and wait
