Last week we had another triple win against Anfi group.
1: In the court of first instance in Maspalomas, Gran Canaria it was revealed that the contract did not reveal minimum requirements regarding the acommodation details, and ruled in favour of the clients of M1 Legal. The judge ordered that the contract be deemed null and void and Anfi to pay £31,810.
2: Again in the court of first instance in Maspalomas, Gran Canaria it was revealed that the contract did not reveal minimum requirements regarding the accommodation details. Furthermore, in this instance, the clients had taken out a Finance agreement with Hitachi and this along with the initial contract were deemed null and void. Anfi were ordered to pay the client £9,882
3: In the third case, again held in the court of first instance in Maspalomas, Gran Canaria the contract did not reveal minimum accommodation requirements nor did it reveal an end date and for this reason the judge awarded the full amount. Anfi were ordered to pay the clients £11,468.
A fantastic triple victory totalling £53,000 for M1 legal and their clients.

During the Timeshare sales boom of the 80s & 90s, potential buyers were lured in by the promise of affordable exotic holidays, flexible exchange programmes and the impression that Timeshare would be a valuable "investment".
In an industry with little or no regulation, high pressure sales tactics were rife and contract smallprint was often glossed over and explained away by sharp salespeople.
Many Timeshare buyers were therefore unaware that they were actually making significant, long term financial commitments on behalf of themselves and their families.

For many Timeshare owners, annual maintenance fees were barely considered token amounts in the early "honeymoon period" of ownership.
However, year-on-year increases imposed by the resorts over time now mean that the maintenance fees have risen to become substantial sums.
Owners are also facing the prospect of ongoing yearly fee increases and realising that they (and their families) are often committed to long term contracts for generations to come.
Please try our Future Fees Calculator to estimate your liabilities over the term of your Timeshare contract, based on an annual increase of 7.5%.

Recent comments from RCI Timeshare owners who have come to us for help with contract cancellation:
“We 'swapped ‘another place in Tenerife for this in order to move to the points system. Since then, getting exchanges to desirable resorts proves almost impossible, irrespective of in-season or off-season.”
“I purchased my timeshare in 1999 and have been a timeshare member ever since. More often than not, I have not be able to go where I wanted and have ended up giving a few weeks to Friends, etc to book somewhere they wanted in order not to lose the weeks. I have then stayed in a hotel!! I am desperately trying to get rid of the timeshare and am now paying Timeshare Shop in Manchester to get rid of it for me.”
