Hi there Mr Comber, Your cae is very comun in Spain lately. Most constructors are broken and the case in court could take several years. I suppose your atorney knows that he should sue not the constructor even the bank because bank is responsible for deposits of buyers in construttion and most banks try to avoid their responsabilities. If you contracted a good atorney ask him and wait. If you do not trust him, just change it asap. Thank you

This is very worrying for us as we have lost our life savings they told us it would take a long time but it's worrying us that we have never heard from them

I know how you feel, and believe that if the atorney do not take the correct way you could lose all your money

He has to sue the bank, no the contsructor

Thank you

We did confront the caja mar bank they didn't want to help us we were told that it was the banks fault we are thinking that the attorneys we have got have conned us
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
But we will contact another we really need that s money back

I see. The problem is that Caja Mar was enforced by law to ensure your deposit (all banks had ) and in fact no one made it

So, thats the way toi get your money back

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
They never gave is a bank guarantee will that be a problem

Yes I know. But law enforces the bank to make it as they did not do it, in court they should pay you

Here In burgos we have won several cases like yours

Contact Jesús Pelaez as I told you

Thank you
