On 6th April 2016 Canarian Legal Alliance posted their latest victory in this ongoing case. They received yet another favourable judgement from the Supreme Court. In this announcement the court has declared that its previous decisions to find Floating Weeks Illegal is upheld. In its rulings the court has declared that selling weeks without a room number or week number specified is illegal. (see link at end of the page).
With this ruling it puts into doubt ANFI´s and the RDO´s assertions that the previous rulings were wrong. We now wait for another statement from these two organisations as to this latest ruling.
So what does this mean for other resorts that have also sold Floating Weeks?
Obviously it will affect them in the same way, the court has again stated these contracts are illegal in Spain. Any resort or company that has sold them is now open to litigation and the contract declared NULL & VOID. The consumer in Spain at least is now getting the protection that the original EU Timeshare Directives sought to give. It is now up to other countries within the EU to do the same. After all, there are many owners who have been sold the same product, but have no redress due to the country they purchased in.
