This is a question we get asked a lot. Many people feel helpless as their maintenance costs continue to rise, and yet they either do not want the Timeshare they own any longer, or they are unable to get the weeks they want each year. Either way, our clients come to us searching for a way out, in the hope that with legal advice they can escape from the Timeshare trap.
If you have checked out our ‘What are your options’ page where we discuss some of the routes out of Timeshare contracts, you will know there are 4 main options. Click here to view the page again.
So, once you decide to take legal action what happens?
First of all we will work out if your case is valid, and has a strong argument for why you should exit your Timeshare. We will never take on cases that we don’t believe we can win. We will answer any questions you have and talk you through our fees and the way we work. We agree on all of the charges upfront, so you know exactly what you have to pay, and when this will need to be settled. We will not start a case until this is all agreed upon to give you peace of mind. We also offer a 14day cooling off period so that you have time to ensure you made the right decision in instructing us to work on your behalf.
This is when the legal processes start behind the scenes. We start by collating all of your documents, which we will use to understand exactly how you came to own your Timeshare. One of our Paralegals will then take a witness statement from you, which allows us to use your personal statements in the case against the Timeshare company.
This, along with your Timeshare documents, statements, financial information and other key pieces of evidence will then be used to begin drafting your case plan. This will be sent to you for your approval before proceeding to the next phase.
If required the Paralegal assigned to your case will then liaise with your designated Solicitor who will amend your case plan further to ensure it is perfect.
Our team will then be able to review the case with our barrister, and contact the Timeshare companies for either relinquishment of the contract, compensation for breaches of Timeshare regulations, or both!
As you can see the road to relinquishment is very complex, time-consuming and at times frustrating as Timeshare companies are often very difficult to deal with. However, our expertise and experience in this allows us to deal with them in the best possible way, giving you the best possible chances of exiting your Timeshare. If you would like further information about our Timeshare Relinquishment services, or how Timeshare Compensation works and if you could be entitled make sure you get in touch with a member of our team today.
