It doesn’t need an expert to see that the papers they send out are exactly the same as the ones for Inmo Leon an openly fraudulent resale company claiming to have guaranteed buyers and defrauding timeshare owners of large amounts of money!

Inmo Leon have a much elaborated “Modus Operandi” of cold calling the timeshare owner and warming up the stage of the guaranteed sale. They start off with a small holding fee but soon start demanding more money for taxes, legal fees and all kinds of fees which are “justified” by the fact the buyer has deposited the money into an Escrow account and is paying an amount you wouldn’t have dreamt of to get for your timeshare. Mi Casa Real Estate is going the same route and uses exactly the same paperwork, wording and dubious promises.

In their introductory letter to the company they claim the following:  “since 2001 we have been registered with the “Registro de la Multipropiedad” in Madrid which regulates and licenses companies to sell and resell timeshare rights under current EU regulations”.

PLEASE NOTE THERE IS NO SUCH REGISTER! This is pure nonsense, and apart from the fact this register does not exist, how do they explain to be working under the current EU Regulations when asking for substantial upfront fees?

Our main advice is to be extremely cautious with these two companies. If they call you, all alarm bells should ring!! Do NOT pay them!

Have you been called by InmoLeon or MiCasa Real Estate? Please let us know.

    I have today (29th Jan 2013) been contacted by a Sian Evans of Mi Casa (she indicated they are located in Mijas, Spain) with what sounded like a decent offer for our Infinity points, however, when I said that they were under by £6k, she took my e-mail address and then said that they would see if the buyer would be interested at the new price and would e-mail me with any firm offer. Thankfully, I immediately conducted a search online and came across mindtimeshare and the comments from others. Bearing this in mind, I will not be entertaining Sian Evans or any other representative from Mi Casa. Thanks for the warning.

    I was contacted by John Priestley from Mi Casa on 21 July. He said he had obtained my details from INMO Services and that he had a client interested in buying my Diamond Resorts points for a fairly substantial sum of money. This was to be organised via escrow and part of the process was a requirement for me to pay a ‘contract security deposit’ of 9% of the sales amount. Is this consistent with previous information you have received? I have made no commitment so far, though obviously the offer was tempting since I would like to sell my points.

    • Dear Michael,
      These companies are openly fraudulent and use fake paperwork in order to get more and more money out of people.
      We strongly recommend not to deal with them and not to pay them a penny.
      Kind regards,
      Customer Care

    We negotiated with Aston Reed and Adam Granger. We too thought them to be genuine as they seemed really interested in us and always phoned us when they said they would and gave us a realistic price for what we were selling etc. Unfortunately we paid the 9% and then another fee for land registry costs, as soon as the money had cleared that was it, we never heard from again!!! We now realise they are totally bogus and we feel really stupid and robbed, and there’s nothing we can do about it because it was all paid in cash.

    • Dear Carly,
      Thanks for your message. I am really sorry to read you paid this bogus company a lot of money and they got away with it. But please don’t give up yet! You should report this to the police of course and we will send you an email with further information.
      Kind regards
      Customer Care

    I am currently negotiating with Aston Reed of Inmo Leon. He says money for my TIMESHARE will be deposited in an escrow account in my name tomorrow. I have to deposit approx £400 in that account to show good faith to the buyer before the money can be released. I looked up the company online and they seem legitimate.

    • Dear Maria,
      Thanks for your message.
      Paying money upfront “as a gesture of good faith” is not a good idea! This company is not to be trusted.
      We strongly recommend not to pay them any money.
      Regards,
      Customer Care
