The latest news from those intrepid lawyers at Canarian Legal Alliance is again hitting the papers. El Diario has published the news of two Supreme Court sentences, these are against Puerto Calma Holiday Club Finland and Tasolan SL at Palm Oasis.
The ruling against Puerto Calma was made for breaches in the selling of fractional ownership, the court ruled that this was not property as indicated by the sales division, but was indeed timeshare. It also upheld previous rulings that contracts over 50 years are illegal. In this case the client received a tremendous award, £235,542 plus legal fees and interest.
As for the Palm Oasis ruling, again it was the over 50 years contract, as yet no indication of amounts awarded have been published. These ruling are becoming a regular almost weekly event, going to show that the laws will be enforced, and the decisions made by the Supreme Court will stand.
In another article on their website, CLA have told the story of Mr & Mrs Grant. Their case went to the Supreme Court in July, their Anfi contract was declared null & void as per the over 50 years ruling. Mr & Mrs Grant took time out from their holiday to visit the CLA offices and personally thanked the team for all their hard work and efforts. This must have been appreciated by the members of the CLA team, who must have also had great big smiles like the Grants in the photograph.
News was also published on 22 September that another Supreme Court ruling had been made, once more this was against Anfi. The court again upheld previous rulings that contracts over 50 years are illegal. So another UK family have had their contract declared null & void, with an award of £31,548 including legal fees and interest being made.
Once again congratulations to the legal team and to all the families who have been victorious, to those waiting for their cases, be patient, the law and the courts are on your side.
