World Cup legend Sir Geoff Hurst is among thousands of British citizens given fresh hope of recouping money feared lost forever following the Spanish property crash.

The Spanish property market was booming when Hurst bought the off-plan property as a retirement home.

He says: ‘We loved holidaying in Spain and it was a natural step to buy.’ But when the bubble burst in 2008, the developer failed to meet bank loan repayments and went bust, taking Hurst’s deposit with it. The bank failed to protect his down payment – a practice that became routine once banks sensed the impending crash. Hurst, 74, had ‘written off’ his loss until he heard of successful claims made by Spanish residents who also did not have bank guarantees.

A court ruling in 2013 in a case brought by Bufete Salmeron now means banks must return deposits. This decision has been reinforced by the Spanish Supreme Court.

Some 100,000 Britons are said to have put down £4billion of deposits on off-plan properties, where the developers went bust.
