The ruling seemed a logical consequence of a blatant contractual default.
Hercesa Inmobiliaria S.A. has lost a case brought against clients of this firm that intended to force them to complete the purchase of an off-plan property on a property development that was just that, a property development.
Never mind that Hercesa failed to build promised additional facilities, as noted on expensive promotional literature: 3 Golf Courses (2 of which were 18-hole facilities), football grounds, Club House, horse riding premises, restaurants and, if you were still skeptical, a luxury (could it be otherwise?) 6-star hotel boasting business center, spa, gym equipped with
hydrotherapy and several pools.
The Court deemed the intervention of the gone estate agency Andalucian Dream Homes ex-sales rep “crucial”, who swore that selling these units with those brochures was a “piece of cake”.
The Judge addtionally states that, on reviewing a photographic report invoked by the defendants’ counsel (we), the development is far from being in perfect conditions, as a consequence of which article 8 of the Consumers and Users Protection Act is fully applicable.
