Hamilton & Leighton Solicitors, selling your timeshare out of the blue…

Captura de pantalla 2015-11-27 a la(s) 13.04.42

Cold callers Hamilton & Leighton Solicitors approach timeshare owners with the direct good news of a buyer been found for their timeshare.

This supposed lawyers company, based in the posh and high up Puerto Banus in Marbella, will process the sale and arrange all the paperwork.

A telephone call received out of the blue from Hamilton & Leighton is of course strange, but when they come with the news that your membership has been sold for close to 20k what more can you wish for?

The follow up email of Hamilton & Leighton reveals the company has been around since 1983. That sounds like a long time for a company that was never mentioned to us before.

They also display the “SL” in their name, which would indicate they are registered at the Spanish Companies House but we have been unable to find such registration.

In the follow up mail they also explain the buyer has already paid a deposit for the purchase into an escrow account. Obviously they now want to secure the sale and in order to do so, they need the paperwork of the owner. Logical..

But what isn’t that logical or better said: LEGAL, is the fact that until they receive the paperwork, they require a “security deposit” payment of around £600 by bank transfer.

That is where is goes completely wrong for Hamilton and Leighton as obviously they claim to be “lawyers” but with no knowledge of the current legislation where exactly the request for deposits in timeshare resale’s is forbidden?

Contact details for Hamilton & Leighton Solicitors are email hamiltonleightonsl@representative.com and telephone: 0560 384 8352

We certainly would recommend a lot of caution when receiving a call from Hamilton & Leighton Solicitors SL!

Cold callers and upfront fees requests are never a good sign and certainly have never resulted in a resale of a timeshare!
