Yesterday 25 May 2016 Canarian Legal Alliance announced another massive win for one of their Norwegian Clients.
The court in Maspalomas Gran Canaria, used the recent Supreme Court rulings that contracts in perpetuity are illegal along with the floating week system. This court also ordered the payment of double the deposit paid within the cooling off period.
This is another blow for Anfi resorts as the amount is a staggering 189,000€. It is also a blow for the RDO as Anfi is a member of this organisation, they have backed Anfi in suggesting that these rulings are incorrect and that the contracts are not illegal.
So far since the 4 April 2016, Anfi have been ordered to reimburse CLA clients around 661,101.32€ in respect of illegal contracts. These contracts have also been declared null and void, thereby freeing the clients from their timeshares.
As stated in the article published on 24 May 2016, this is just against one company, how will they be able to sustain amounts such as this at the rate the courts are ruling against them? It would seem that the prediction of the million euro mark being reached before the halfway point of the year is right on track.
Congratulations to the client and the legal team at CLA for this huge victory.
