“Back in 2008 I invested in a two bedroom apartment in Cape Verde; it appeared to be a sound investment at the time. The completion of the construction was written in the contract to be 2010 with a 180 days grace period. The construction on this site did not start until late 2010 and it became obvious that the completion date and grace period was going to elapse.
At this point I didn’t know where to turn I had already paid out £34,000. I tried contacting the Law Society to no joy and didn’t know what to do next. Then a friend put me in touch with Neil Heaney of JC and it was a relief that there was a company out there that dealt with overseas investment and understood my situation.
