It is the end of another week with Inside Timeshare, we began this week with an old story, that of Mrs B and her long-running battle with MacDonald Resorts over maintenance arrears for a timeshare she no longer legally owns. We also highlighted two new companies who have begun a cold calling campaign, Timeshare Refund Calculator and World and European Marketing Ltd. Once again these have been supplied by our regular readers who have been contacted by them. Another major article this week was the article Lopesan Sue Apollo Capital Management in UK Courts, a story that has aroused the interest of some of our US readers.
There was also some very good news from the courts, these were mainly sentences against Anfi. Many of these were judgements from the High Court of Las Palmas, GC, these were appeals by Anfi against the rulings from the Court of First Instance, in every case, the appeal was dismissed with the original sentence endorsed and returned to the original court for execution of sentence.
Considering the number of appeals that Anfi is making to the High Court, with all of them being rejected and sentences endorsed, it makes Inside Timeshare wonder why Anfi continues to appeal?
We suspect they are playing for time and just delaying the inevitable, possibly to deter any new claims being filed using time as a tool. After all, we know how devious Anfi can be!
We finish this week with news of another court case, this time it is not Anfi, but Holiday Club based in Gran Canaria.
The Court of First Instance Number 4 of SBT, has declared the clients contract null and void, they have also awarded over 20,000€ plus legal interest and legal costs.
This amount also includes the payment of double the amount of the deposit taken within the statutory cooling-off period.
Apparently, this is another case where the judge decided that a full trial would not be necessary and issued his sentence at the pre-trial stage. This means the case has been dealt with within a very short period of time, from filing with the court to the sentence has only been 6 months. It certainly is speeding things up now judges are dispensing with full trials.
This case was brought on behalf of the Norwegian client by Canarian Legal Alliance, with the Lawyer Eva Gutierrez preparing the case and representing the client in court, with Claims Consultant Michael Gadman assisting the client during the process.
That is all for this week, join us again next week for more news and information on the murky world of timeshare.
Remember, do your homework before engaging with any company, have a great weekend.
