WHAT IS A TIMESHARE?
A timeshare is an arrangement where people purchase specific weeks in the year, at a given resort, that guarantees them a high-quality holiday experience. Spain and Portugal were particularly popular destinations for timeshare scams, with the Canary Islands featuring prominently.
There are different types of products: points-based, weeks-based, or a combination, that offers flexibility and a variety of options.
However, with more affordable holiday options available, timeshares are becoming less popular.
HAVE YOU BEEN MIS-SOLD A TIMESHARE?
It has been said that a timeshare is not bought, it is sold. This is because people don’t tend to look into buying one. It will be most likely that consumers attended a timeshare sales presentation and are forced into signing up. Here are a few signs that you may have been mis-sold your contract:
HIGH-PRESSURE SALES TACTICS
LONG SALES PRESENTATIONS
PROMOTIONAL VIDEOS AND PHOTOS
ONE DAY ONLY OFFER
PROMISES OF CHEAP FLIGHTS
PAYING THE DEPOSIT IMMEDIATELY
WAS DESCRIBED AS AN “INVESTMENT”
UNLIMITED HOLIDAYS AT ANY TIME AT ANY RESORT
NEVER INFORMED OF THE 14-DAY COOLING OFF PERIOD
HOW WE CAN HELP
If your timeshare was mis-sold to you, we offer 2 distinct services:
We could terminate your timeshare maintenance contract. This could leave you free of your lifetime maintenance contract, meaning that you and your family will never have to pay another fee to your timeshare club again, saving you thousands of pounds.
We could claim your money back on a no win no fee basis if you paid on a UK credit card within the last 6 years or took a finance agreement within the last 10 years. This can be done under certain conditions provided under the Consumer Credit Act 1974, which is intended to protect consumers from mis-sold purchases.
PLEASE NOTE: If you have a claim, you can pursue it without cancelling your timeshare, however, we advise clients to pursue both to prevent rising costs.
