International Property

Cubism Law has substantial experience in advising clients both in the UK and overseas on property disputes and mortgage mis-selling and on the resolution of such issues, particularly involving properties located in Cyprus and in other foreign jurisdictions such as Portugal, Spain, Brazil and other South American countries.

We advise typically UK based investors on a range of problems concerning investments in properties in such overseas countries. The problems often concern mis-sold mortgages (frequently foreign currency mortgages), misrepresentation, investment fraud, invalid bank guarantees and problems with related financial products. The objective generally is to protect the value of the investment, to resist possession of the property or to make claims for damages based upon a variety of misrepresentations, negligence, mis-description of properties and fraud.  Often steps should be taken promptly to secure the client’s position and to avoid the client becoming ensnared in litigation in foreign countries which can be very expensive.

Whilst negotiation in relation to such issues can occasionally be effective, it is essential to understand the legal position in order to secure the best results. Negotiation alone by unqualified brokers or claims handlers rarely secures the best result.

At Cubism Law our expertise in overcoming foreign law issues has frequently proved invaluable, as has our substantial experience in the techniques of successful litigation and mediation. We also have a long and enviable track record of successfully conducting class actions, brought by multiple claimants as well as conducting claims on behalf of individual clients.

Amongst the actions we have successfully brought are claims against:

  • Banks and other money lenders
  • Mortgagees
  • Developers
  • Financial intermediaries
  • Lawyers
  • Architects and other professional advisors

We will give you clear and frank advice on the prospects of successfully suing all such parties.

We are pleased to offer an initial consultation free of charge with a senior lawyer experienced in such cases.
