Anfi: Another Offer to Members

It would appear that Anfi has made another new offer to members, this time the Customer Services Department have sent letters to members explaining they are updating their database of Club members.

They have set a date of 31 January 2019 to complete the task, so what is this offer?

According to Maria Hidalgo of Customer Services, they understand that the personal circumstance of members may change which affect the title holders of the membership certificates. They may wish to add or remove names and even make other revisions to the certificates.

Now they are being very generous in this as they say that this will be done with no charge to the members.

This raises the question is this just to update the database or is there another underlying reason for this?

We must remember that when it comes to Anfi, not all is what is seems, for example in june 2017, they held a Special General Meeting regarding their contracts. Members were asked to vote for three resolutions:

  • Resolution 1: To establish occupancy periods for a maximum of 50 years duration, with an option for further recurring occupancy periods of 50 years.
  • Resolution 2: To limit the duration of the Timeshare Scheme to a maximum of 50 years.
  • Resolution 3: Total change of the Timeshare Scheme to adapt to Spanish Act 4/2012.

As we know this was a very clever ploy in their attempt to prevent any further legal action and court case against them for the illegal perpetuity contracts.

Resolution 1 was voted in, (see link below),  but they could not change the contracts without the permission and signatures of the members, if the member refused to change there was nothing that Anfi could do.

Anfi Special General Meeting, The Vote is In.

We also wonder how many members did change to the new contracts, not as many as they would have liked we think.

So is this another attempt to entice members to change to the 50 year contracts and again remove the possibility for those very members to take legal action against Anfi?

Will they try to issue new contracts as well as make changes to the membership certificates?

As always with Anfi, nothing is ever clear, they are very adept at confusing any issue that may affect the members. In the end many members have been mislead in their dealings with Anfi, from the initial purchase through to all the upgrades.

How it used to look!

Now what if the member does not make any changes before the deadline to complete the changes, will Anfi then introduce a charge to add or remove names?

As always time will tell, but think carefully about anything that Anfi says, ask yourself what is their motive?

If you have any thoughts or coments on this subject, then use our contact page and let us know.

Tomorrow we publish another article about another company that was brought to our attention by regular and concerned reader, it is once again revolves around the many “bogus” claims companies that have been popping up over the past few years. What makes this one even more worrying is the information that they had on our reader, they knew what he owned, when he purchased, how much he paid, how much his maintenance fees are and what his membership number is.

So join us tomorrow for another day in the murky world of timeshare.
