Well, it’s that time again, the end of another week and the start of a well deserved weekend break. Today’s article is a short one with only two new sentences being issued, we also give a quick warning on another new cold caller and website which has just come to our attention. So far we do not have much information but as soon as we have more we will publish the full story.
News from the courts.
Now that the courts annual August break is over and have started to catch up on their backlog, only two sentences have been issued from the Courts of First Instance of San Bartelomé de Tirajana. Both of these are against our old friends Anfi Resorts SL and Anfi Sales SL.
The contract was declared null and void with the court ordering Anfi to pay back 41,909€ plus legal interest. In issuing the award, the judge also included double the amount which the client had paid as a deposit. As we have stated before it is illegal to take any payments within the statutory cooling-off period, even by a third party, the law has made it quite clear that any payments made which contravenes this will be awarded double.
The second case again involving Anfi Sales and Anfi Resorts was also conducted on behalf of a Norwegian client by Eva Guttierrez with Claims Consultant Michael Gadman assisting the client.
The court declared the contract null and void as it was over 50 years in duration and contained floating weeks. The client has also been awarded 30,153€ plus legal Interest, this amount also included double for the illegal taking of a deposit.
We suspect over the next few weeks we will be seeing many more judgements being made, as they are Inside Timeshare will publish them.
We now move to a warning to all our readers.
Inside Timeshare has been informed of a new cold caller contacting timeshare owners regarding the termination of contracts and claims.
The name is Timeshare Closure, we cannot call it a company as we have so far not found any reference to them on UK or Spanish company records. Their website shows no company information at all and it was only registered on 26 June 2020 and is set to expire on 26 June 2022.
The caller also uses the name Timeshare Data who then transfers the call to Timeshare Closure. The only contact with Timeshare Closure is a telephone number 0800 048 8387, the contact form and this email address: [email protected]
As we get more information it will be published here.
Once again we hope you have a great weekend and remember to do your homework before engaging with any company that contacts you or that you find on the internet.
