We’re here to make the process as simple as possible for you and help claim your money back.
We have a proven track record in property claims
We are the only company to combine the expertise of a Spanish legal team who have a 100% success track record on law 57/68 claims and a UK claims team. Our UK claims team have recovered over twenty-million pounds for UK residents who lost money in failed off-plan property developments.
We take away language barrier challenges
You won’t need to travel to Spain to speak to us. We will keep you up to date on the progress of your claim from our UK head office – and you can call us any time that you wish.
Our fee structure is transparent
Our success fee stays the same, regardless of whether we settle your claim at the First Instance Court, the Appeal Court or even the Supreme Court. It doesn’t matter how long the process takes or how complex the case becomes, you will pay only one court fee of 500 Euros. If the courts do not find in your favour, you will not be charged.
We are a UK company regulated by The Claims Management Regulator
We understand that the challenges of the internet can often result in not knowing who to trust. As you can see by the statement in the website footer, we operate as a fully regulated and compliant company. You are welcome to visit us in our offices, based in West Sussex, where you can meet our team of experts who will show you how the process works.
You are not alone
Our team currently represent more than six-hundred couples or individuals reclaiming in Spain – so the chances are, that we already have clients on your development who deposited money with the same bank. We understand what you are going through and have the knowledge to help recover your money and make the process as straight-forward as possible.
We’ve changed our name!
At The Claims Bureau, we had such a high volume of Spanish property claims, that we set up a separate company of Spanish Claim Specialists rebranding as Reclaim in Spain. That’s why some of our testimonials refer to us as The Claims Bureau. Same people, same service, different name.
We think we do a brilliant job here at Reclaim in Spain, but don’t just take our word for it, here’s what our customers say…
“I received my full initial capital outlay plus 50% of the interest! Obviously, I am delighted with the outcome and would have no hesitation in recommending Reclaim in Spain to progress your claim”
“Reclaim in Spain was a light at the end of a long dark tunnel for us.
After nine years of anguish, they fought our corner and won our case in eighteen months.
We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend this efficient, friendly legal team.

“We were very sceptical. We had accepted the fact that we’d made a huge mistake and we’d never see the money again. We hadn’t even mentioned the loss to our two grown-up daughters. But the Claims Bureau were very calm and told us that they would never make any promises they couldn’t keep and wouldn’t have to pay a penny until our claim was successful.
Because we had invested cash and not re-mortgaged our home, our claim was a little more complex than usual. But they told us that they wouldn’t give up and they’d keep in touch. Then a few months later they called us about a new development in Spanish Law. The bank that took our deposit should have kept that money to one side, but they didn’t and instead paid it over to the developer, who went bust. Now we could use this new ruling to make a claim against the bank in Spain.
When it was explained it all seemed very confusing but the Claims Bureau made the process so smooth. They told us exactly what we’d need to provide and when we’d need to provide it. At last, we had a glimmer of hope and people who really did want to help us.
The solicitor in Spain was amazing. He was so confident and both he and the Claims Bureau were always approachable and reassuring. Then we received the phone call and I’m still in shock mode! The Spanish Court had awarded us all our money back plus an amount of interest to be paid on top! It was at long last an end to all those years of stress and a huge weight from our shoulders.
The whole process was much quicker than we’d ever imagined and we still can’t believe we have money back that we never thought we’d see again. More than that, we’re no longer living with any bitter feelings of being ripped off. My husband has early stage Alzheimer’s and so we’re going to take a nice holiday, something we can appreciate and enjoy together and hopefully create some strong memories that can be clung to in the future.
If anybody still has a little doubt, believe me, you can’t be anymore doubtful than we were but the Claims Bureau made it all so easy and now we have our self-esteem and our money back. Thank you the Claims Bureau.”

“We cannot praise them enough for their work in retrieving our deposit, in particular, Martín in his professional manner with a friendly face. Would recommend to anyone.”
“We paid a large deposit for an off-build property in Jumilla in 2005 and thought we would lose all of it when the build hit major problems. However, we are about to get most of our money back thanks to the help and persistence of Martín. Although it is doubtful that we would purchase a property again, we would definitely not hesitate to employ or recommend Martín in the future. Thank you for being there every step of the way”

“In 2005 we put down a deposit for an apartment in a complex in Denia however, the developers went bankrupt before the apartment or complex were completed.”
We got in contact with Martin de la Harran and he has recently managed to get an excellent out of Court settlement for us from the Spanish bank involved – so not only have we got a substantial amount refunded but we didn’t have to wait for a lengthy Court process to take place.
Throughout the whole process, Martín was amazing – he replied so promptly to all our emails and queries and kept us informed all the way through in clear and perfect English. They were worth every penny of their fee deducted from our settlement. We simply cannot thank Martín enough for recovering our money which we thought was lost for ever.”
“Nine years ago we received the devastating news that not only was our dream house at Santa Ana del Monte unlikely to be built, but that we would also lose our deposit with seemingly no way to recover it.
Last year our friends told us about Martín de la Herrán, who had succeeded in recovering the money for many clients in a similar situation to us.
We have been impressed by the professionalism and persistence shown by Martín. There were a few delays along the way, but he kept us informed at every stage and showed a lot of patience when dealing with my impatience!
Thanks to Martín, we won our case and the bank has now returned our deposit, so this story has a happy ending. If anyone else is in a similar situation, we can’t recommend Martín highly enough”
