Timeshares are often depicted as a dream opportunity where you can go on holiday, take the family, relax and enjoy a beautiful property at a fraction of the full purchase price. However, the reality for thousands of customers that have fallen into a timeshare trap is that they find themselves locked into a never ending contract and stuck with a significant financial commitment that they cannot get out of.
Whether you have had a change in circumstances, are unable to afford the increasing maintenance fees or you no longer use the property, if you believe that you might have been mis-sold your timeshare, we can help. Our dedicated team are on hand to provide much needed support, guidance and advice to our clients and work hard to pursue timeshare mis-selling claims on their behalf.
How Do I Know If I Was Mis-sold My Timeshare?
There are many different ways that various legalities, contracts and situations can arise when entering a timeshare contract and if these are not handled correctly they can be deemed as misrepresentation or mis-selling.
If you believe that you could have been mis-sold your timeshare contract then you may have grounds for a claim if;
- You felt pressured, coerced or tricked into agreeing to and signing the contract.
- You were made false promises and guaranteed that the timeshare property would increase in value over time.
- You were told that you were free to cancel the contract whenever you want which has turned out not to be true.
- You were told it was a short term offer / only valid if you signed up that day etc.
- You were told that the timeshare would be an investment and that the value would increase, leading to significant financial profit.
- You have tried to exit the agreement but have been told you cannot or that you need to enter a new timeshare agreement to do so.
- You were not made aware of the cooling off period or were told that it didn’t apply to you.
- You were led to believe that maintenance charges were much lower than they actually are and were not told about the annual increases and additional fees.
- You paid for the timeshare, or paid a deposit for the timeshare, using a method of finance (finance agreement or credit card).
- Did they tell you it wasn’t in fact a timeshare or try to pass it off as something else?
If you answered yes to any of the above questions or have other concerns about other aspects of how it was sold to you, then we can help review your situation and determine quickly if you have legal grounds to make a claim.
