 By complete chance the sale  of my holiday home in Vera Playa was completed on 28 October 2021. This was two days after Spain's highest Court issued a decision that the method of calculating PlusValia was illegal. A few days later a new legal method of calculating PlusValia was announced by the Government and took effect from the date of the announcement. Five months after the sale of my property was completed my Spanish solicitor is still retaining almost €4000 just in case PlusValia still has to be paid. I cannot see how there be any legal basis for me to have to pay PlusValia now when it was wasn't payable at the date the sale of my property was completed. Is there anyone on the Forum who is in the same position as me or knows someone who is? Regards, Roy

Hi Roy

I was in the same position but did not need to pay or have any monies retained. As far as I am aware during that short period the law courts deemed it illegal and councils could not until the law was changed therefore your solicitor has no right to withold your monies.

Hope this helps

Hi Paul, thanks for your quick and helpful response. My property was in the Vera Council area. Where was yours?

Hi Roy 

Mine was in Murcia however if you are still in Spain I would suggest you go to your local council and ask them there 

Good luck Paul
