Return of Lost Deposits
If you have lost a deposit in Spain or in Florida and the developer has defaulted on the contract, by failing to build your unit within the agreed time, you have a right to the return of all your money PLUS interest on that money from the developer.
In the US the judgements against the developer remain in place for up to 20 years, and it is a criminal offence to misappropriate your deposit money.
In Spain you also have the right to bring a criminal action against the developer if they have misappropriated funds.
