Two successful claims, one happy client;

Read our latest success story…

There were  two  elements  to my claim.

Instant  access  properties  advised  me  to  re-mortgage my residential home and to purchase three properties, two in the UK and one overseas, using their property finding service.  I sent  off  all  the  information  I  had,  Laura  and the team then gathered all the missing information and presented a claim to the FSCS.

In November 2016 the judgement went in my favour and I was awarded £40,041.30.

The second claim was against three Spanish banks, with total deposits of £28,000.

Nick handled  the  claim at the beginning and I was represented in court by Martin, the Claims Bureau’s Spanish solicitor.

I cannot thank Martin enough for the way he presented the claim with the limited paperwork I still had available, the purchase being over a decade ago.

The judgement again went in  my  favour,  the  award  being  €51,000.

At  the  time  of  this  testimonial  I  have  received one payment with the other two pending.

They say that, in life, timing is everything.
If I hadn’t taken that first call from Peter at The Claims Bureau, I would not have been able to access the wonderful service and financial outcome that The Claims Bureau provided.

Mr G

Mr G lost his hard earned pension investing with Harlequin and had abandoned all hope, until one day his solicitor referred him to the Claims Bureau.

Mr D & Mrs J-M

Mr D & Mrs J-M replied to a newspaper ad to invest with Harlequin in Caribbean property, only for it all to go horribly wrong. That is until we got them their money back.


We cannot thank the Mortgage Claims Bureau enough for all their hard work in getting us back the money we had invested in an overseas property via Harlequin Investments.

Instant Access Properties and Fuel Investments

Mr & Mrs A

Mr & Mrs A were referred to the Claims Bureau by previously successful clients. They were ecstatic to join our ever growing list of happy customers when they were awarded £79,000 by the FSCS.

Mr E

Mr E was advised to re-mortgage his home to raise enough capital to invest in UK buy-to-let property, but when the market dropped he was left in negative equity and eventually forced to sell at a heavy loss. He was delighted when we managed to get a significant amount of his money back.

Mr & Mrs C

Having lost their money in a badly advised property investment and suspicious of being caught up in another scam, Mr & Mrs C very nearly didn’t claim at all, but they were glad they did when they won their money back.

Dr & Mrs N

Dubious at first, Dr & Mrs N needed a lot of gentle persuasion, but now they’ve been awarded £76,000 they’re so glad they took the decision to return their forms to the Claims Bureau.

Mr & Mrs M

Mr & Mrs M were close to losing everything after re-mortgaging their home to invest with IAP/Fuel, but they have now been given a second chance after being awarded £100,000 thanks to the Claims Bureau

Mr W

Mr W went through 9 years of a personal hell trying to recover his lost deposit in the USA before he was referred to the Claims Bureau and now he has his money back!

Mr & Mrs C-H

We recovered money for Mr & Mrs C-H after their dream home in Spain was never built and they’d made a failed attempt to claim through the Spanish courts.

Mr & Mrs S

Mr & Mrs S lost money when they re-mortgaged their home to invest with IAP. After initial doubts they worked with us and received their FSCS pay-out in just 24 days!

Ocean View Properties

Mr & Mrs M

“We can now move on with our lives and put this horrendous episode behind us thanks to The Claims Bureau. From the bottom of my heart I thank you and we will be indebted to your professionalism and expertise forever.” Mr (& Mrs) M after their lives were shattered by advice to divert their savings to Ocean View Properties.

Mr & Mrs C

After taking advice from their IFA, Mr & Mrs C invested in their dream home only to come close to losing the roof above their heads, until they spoke with the Claims Bureau

Off-Plan Property Investments

Off-Plan Investor

Thanks so much to the team at The Mortgage Claims Bureau. It was a long slog over 2.5 years…. and to be honest I didn’t hold out a great amount of hope. I’d always wanted to become a property investor, but didn’t know how to, so I was an easy catch and had been mesmerised […]

– Mr Martin Smith and Mrs Christine Smith

My wife and I worked hard to build our own house… And having almost completed it used a large amount of equity generated in it to invest in some Off Plan properties in America and Spain based on the financial advice to “diversify in different countries as one country may suffer recession but not all”.  […]


Successful Claim

We were introduced to the Claims Bureau after we had been persuaded to join an “investment opportunity” which actually cost us more money as time progressed, with no apparent prospect of a return of any dividends or the original deposit. The Claims Bureau were diligent in tracing historical actions to the smallest detail before investigating […]

Reclaim in Spain

Mr & Mrs Whickman

Mr & Mrs Whickman had good reasons not to want to rake over 11 years of bad memories and chase what they believed was nothing more than a slender hope of reclaiming money they lost when investing in Spain. Now they have it all back and more besides.
