You're going to have to speak to a lawyer in the Canary Islands about the registration of the property and any options open to you. Do this immediately. Call the UK Embassy there and ask if there is a law society/regulatory authority to which they can refer you.
If the person has bought the land in their name outside your instructions then it seems to me that your likely to have to make some form of application to Canarian Court in respect of the purchase of the property.
If there are no options available to you in the Canary Islands then you are left with the prospect of having to sue the person here in the UK and you will have to take specific advice from a UK litigation solicitor.
