Bufete Salmerón has reached an agreement with BBVA whereby the financial institution returned 94,893.54 of the amounts prepaid by a purchaser of an off-plan home in the Riviera golf development (Mijas Costa) once the claim had been filed and before the financial institution had answered the claim.
In the agreement, which has been approved by a court order, Bufete Salmerón demanded the return of the amounts paid on account for the purchase of a property, as the financial entity was liable, even though no bank guarantees had been formalised by the buyers.
In it, BBVA assumes its responsibility for payment and proceeds to make the payment into the Court’s account.
In 2015, the Supreme Court acknowledged the liability of financial institutions in this type of case. It is estimated that there are tens of thousands of off-plan purchase contracts in which the bank could be held liable.
Bufete Salmerón, which has a team specialised in banking and property law, fights for the defence of consumers against abusive practices in the field of mortgages.
Bufete Salmerón has already been a pioneer in obtaining judgments that oblige banks and insurers to return money and has a strong presence at a national and international level.
