CATALÀ REINÓN’S FINANCE LAWYERS IN BARCELONA – FLOOR CLAUSES’ ECONOMIC CONSEQUENCES

Banks’ floor clauses exist from the relationship between the Euribor and the interest that must be paid to a bank when one requests a loan. The banks set price limits to prevent the loans’ interests to match Euribor’s. This led to a great price difference when Euribor was below the floor clause interest limit. The limits of these clauses ranged from 2 to 3 percent when this percentage was considered to be the average Euribor value. If you have been affected by this kind of clause, contact the team of finance lawyers at Català Reinón in Barcelona; we will study your case in detail and provide a quick and efficient solution.

GRUND CLAUSES JUDGEMENT’S AMENDMENT

Judgment of the High court of Justice of 15 February 2017 in relation to floor clauses

The Civil Division of the High Court of Justice amended the legal doctrine of May 2013, which determined that banks shall return the amounts collected through floor clauses from that date on, and obliges banks to return all amounts collected through a retroactive clause, i.e. to return all amounts collected through such a clause and not only those collected since May 2013.

The High Court of Justice implements the ruling handed down last December 2016 by the European High Court of Justice, which considers that this type of clause has not been applied with complete transparency and therefore obliges Spanish financial institutions to repay in full the money they have received for its application.

In 2013 a judgment was passed against the BBVA bank and it was bound to return the floor clauses after May 2013. This ruling, which dictates that all money shall be returned to customers, opens a window to all the BBVA customers affected by this type of clause, who can now individually claim that they should not be subject to the 2013 limit and that the full amount paid for this type of clause should be returned.

An appeal was filed before the same Civil Chamber of the High Court of Justice by Caja Rural Teruel. In this case, it has rejected the claims of the clients, since it understands that there was negotiation of these clauses and therefore there was transparency.
