S.L. Mortgage Funding Nº1 LTD Responds to Claim

Surrenda-link Sell Your Endowment

Surrenda Link Mortgage Funding has formally responded to a claim filed by a number of victims of the Equity Release and have, fundamentally, denied any responsibility in selling anything but an English loan guaranteed with a Spanish mortgage.

Surrenda Link argues the following:

  1. That the victims were not resident at the time of taking out the loan.
  2. That the “product” is not a complex one but a type of “reverse mortgage” that almost all Spanish banks offer -without them being accused of tax fraud-.
  3. That claimants were correctly advised of associated risks by their lawyers and financial advisers.
  4. That the “product” and its promotional literature was offered to financial advisers (IFAs) based in Spain, who were hired by the claimants, at their own peril.
  5. That SLM and Premier did not offer, via joint venture, any financial product to the claimants.
  6. That this mortgage loan is fully valid for IHT mitigation purposes, in accordance to a report prepared by a “prestigious” lawyer, Carlos Albiñana, who has dreamt up a theory whereby if you take out a loan on your house to acquire a Ferrari, your children can certainly deduct this loan for IHT purposes. In his defense, we can argue that he was just too lazy to submit an enquiry to the Tax Office, as ERVA did in 2013.
The Court has ordered the parties to appear at the Bilbao Court of First Instance on the 11th of November of this year.
Lawyers for claimants are currently analyzing the allegations submitted by the defendant having noted that the acting lawyer, Gunter Helding, boasts in his published CV  being the
designer of a financial product involving mortgage loans for a British investment firm.
Can we safely presume that he is referring to THE PREMIER GROUP and SURRENDA LINK? We most certainly can.

Rocco CAIRA, lawyer for clandestine SL Mortgage Funding

ERVA could have not found a better word to describe the client that Mr. Caira represented in Spain: clandestine.

From his Bilbao office, this “contract negotiator” expert had wholly ommited the fact that his client, Surrenda-Link Mortgage Holdings, had no authorisation to operate in Spain because it lacked the required license by the Bank of Spain…without exception. This means that it was in breach of EU mandatory regulatory compliance with the host country, among other minor legals of obligatory observance.

Together with his pal Javier Bicarregui Garay, another submissive lawyer who in turn represented -remotely- the victims of this fiasco devised by Charles “Charlie” Walton (without ever meeting them, talking to them or even the basic thing such as checking out the operation), with a power of attorney, tens of mortgage loans were signed off on distant properties via a servile happy-to-please Bilbao Notary…all of them, without exception, for an illegal investment purpose to evade Spanish taxes.

Mr. Bicarregui Garay was granted, according to the press, the Order of the British Empire.

It is strongly recommended that anyone that had given a power of attorney to Mr. Bicarregui Garay inmediately revokes it by formally signing a revocation of power of attorney public document, at the closest Notary Public.
