On 21st December 2016, the European Court of Justice (ECJ) ruled that the minimum interest rate clauses contained in some Spanish mortgages were “abusive” and therefore invalid. This opens the opportunity to claim back the excess interest and capital that were taken during the mortgage.
These minimum interest rates are what are known as “Floor Clauses”, and following this judgment, the government has recently established an out-of-court procedure to claim the money back from the bank.
