    Unhappy San Jose

    I recieved a letter yesterday from my Spanish Lawyers which states the following:

    We have been notified by the committee,appointed by the Mercantile Judge of the Province of Alicante,that the Group San Jose have presented an application for bankruptcy proceedings,which has been admitted.

    Due to the above mentioned we would be obliged if you could contact our offices as soon as possible in order to have a meeting with a Lawyer and obtain information regarding this matter.

    I purchaced my property last year and can only think it has to do with either the title deeds or the fact the maintenance contract has been stopped ie:swimming pool/gardens!

    I have tried all day to contact the Lawyer but been put on hold each time,wiil try again later but if anybody has any ideas,please advice!

    Unhappy san jose

    Have been informed today that the Title Deeds ARE the reason for the above letter,apparently the Lawyers have been trying to obtain these from Madrid for the last 12 months without any success and now that San Jose have gone under they still hold them and this presents a problem with ownership and they could after a Judge ruling seize any assets to pay of creditors.

    I obtain the property via Atlas International and been informed by them that a lot of others are in the same position as myself,if anybody else is in this position I would like hear there opinion.

    Worrying times ahead I feel for the property market as a whole!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Dear Joe:

    As a background commentary so they do not feel so stressed, please say to them that they will not be losing their properties. Do they have power supplies connected?

    Please ask them to contact me anyhow so they can be more assured on your situation.

    Best regards,

    Maria

    Dear Joe:


    Please have answers below in bold green ( same text of your message):



    Q; Hola Maria,

    I have seen your posts regarding the San Jose situation and the information you have given. I have a property on Playa Golf III which was built by San Jose. We are lucky that we do have our deeds and a certificate of habitation, but some of the other residents that completed at the same time as ourselves have not yet received these documents.


    Their worry is that the administrators will list them as creditors and so, even that they have paid for the property, have completed and moved in, they might still loose the property without the deeds being issued to them.

    Can you give any advice or help as to the legal status of these owners who are still waiting for the deeds please.

    A; They need to formally request from the Administrators on their deeds. We would be pleased to assist them on that. Please ask them to please send an email to us at mldecastro at costaluzlawyers.es or marialuisa at costaluzlawyers.es. Deadline for doing so expires on the 5th-9th of August depending on if the company they bought from was Herrada del Tollo or San Jose.





    Thanks.


    Thank you in anticipation of your reply.

    Joe Dembinski (Sping)

    According to spanish law. anyone that is buying of plan is entitled to a bank guarantee of all their moneys paid until they sign their deeds.
    In case th builder goes bust, all your money paid out would then be reimbursed form that bank.
    Do you have one of these? If so you will not loose your money. If the building is finished but you havent got your title deeds, then you wont loose your property, but it could take time before you can get your deeds and becasue of that you wont be able to get water and electricity.

    Hi Nalle,
    In the case of Playa Golf III R3; we are all connected to the water and electricity supply, we have an urbanisation president and committee. But only some of us have our deeds and I think all of us have the habitation licence.

    I have today spoken to the lawyer and they a posting me the necessary documents for me to sign given them the go ahead to apply to the Judge appointed in this case regarding the application for title deeds.
    I also spoke to Atlas an they said its the first time its happened to builders they are associated with!

    My apartment was paid in full just over a year ago and water/electricity was connected just after moving in and I have the document regarding "habitation licence".

    The Reason I did not chase up the title deeds over the last year because the lawyer/Atlas said at the time they have known cases that deeds have taken up to 3 years so my advice is if anybody is waiting for there deeds make enquires NOW!!!!!!!!!

    Thanks Sping and Nalle for feedback.
