Gentlemen/Ladies,
I would be more than happy to put your questions to the IBEX Head office and I agree that there appears to be a need to have some straightforward guidance/ruling on this matter.

mortgage

Generally Spanish banks don't simply rely on collateral, they are more interested in proven ability to repay the loan.

How about a few details please ?

Hey Beach, How about backing that one up ?


"They are insured with Gibraltarian insurance companies by dodgy brokers on the Costa del Sol."

Dodgy in what way ?

Which Gibraltarian insurance companies ( plural ) ?

I take issue with such a sweeping generalisation !
