The world is full of ‘experts’ and we have heard any number of instances where people bragged that they had ‘handed back the keys’ and they have not heard from the Bank for years.
Invariably these people then come back to us and say ‘oops’ the Bank or Solicitors have chased them for a huge shortfall balance after handing back the keys.
Ignoring a Spanish debt is not wise as debt does not go away. In fact very often it grows and then your UK assets, home or Pension, come under threat.
This chase by the Banks and or their Solicitor is then fuelled by the Bank’s annoyance that these people did not engage and ‘did a runner’. This annoyance is based on the time it takes in the Spanish Courts and the non-engagement of their client throughout the legal process. They are motivated and annoyed – not in a good way.
The next point these ‘experts’ face is the enormity of the amount claimed. However, the amount due will have ‘ballooned’ because of the following:
To conclude, ignoring any debt is not ideal – it does not go away.
Do not listen to those ‘experts’ and do not live in fear of the unknown.
If you did ‘hand back the keys’, we may understand your reasoning at the time, but do not think the problem has gone away.
