The bank must return to its customers what has been collected by opaque floor clauses with total retroactivity.

The European Court of Justice today ruled in favor of establishing a total retroactivity in the return of the opaque floor clauses of the mortgage contracts. The verdict is a tremendous blow for the banking sector, which must return all the money collected under these clauses.

The judgment of the Luxembourg Court establishes that in the case of ground clauses that are void because of their opacity, the bank must return the amount collected by them to its customers with total retroactivity, and not since May 2013.

But this does not mean that financial institutions are obliged to return the money ex officio.
