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!
