Not a cold caller but still a company who approaches consumers without them asking for the information. Timeshare Legals has done an e-shot to Club la Costa members offering their services.
In the email they present themselves and state:”…We are a UK registered company and use UK Law Panels who specialise in this field.
We are proud to confirm that we have successfully disposed of many Timeshare or Holiday Club Memberships. This has saved our clients thousands of pounds in annual service charges, and the continued burden of perpetuity clauses….”
They continue:”… The process is handled from our legal offices in Manchester. The membership is firstly terminated, and once that process is complete (after approximately three or four weeks) we can start on the reclaim of funds. This final stage can take up to six months via the banks and the ombudsman under British law.”
All sounds very interesting if it wasn’t for the fact that this company is not really registered as such at the Companies House. As mentioned on their website the company Timeshare Legals is actually a brand name of RJP Asset Management Limited. This company was registered in March this year so very recent, the same as the web registration.
Company activity / nature of business: Agents involved in the sale of a variety of goods
Not really something you would expect from a “legal” company.
There is no mention at all on the website of any genuine legal company being linked to these people and we suspect there isn’t any.
The website www.timesharelegals.co.uk includes “testimonials” from happy customers which seems to be hard to believe taking in mind they have only been around for 3 months.
Further research has shown that the company Timeshare Legals has direct connections with other so called Claims companies who were actively cold calling in the past for supposed claims that never happened either.

If you received an email from the company Timeshare Legals offering their services for claims and disposals, we would like to hear from you.

I too was cold called by Time share legals. They arranged a zoom meeting shortly followed by a home visit. They took a deposit and all my paperwork, Since then I have not had any correspondence except for 22 emails demanding full payment. I asked them via email, for information about t progress on the case before I paid he balance. Again, heard nothing except for another demand for the 12,900 Euro balance.
Recently contacted by this company, who did not bear scrutiny when investigated. The have not filed a tax return, yet charge VAT. Only one director, whose other company sell used cars – you could not write a better warning line!
High speed, high pressure sale that went from no win, no fee, to give us a five figure some to get someone else to litigate for you. The person we spoke to was not even an employee of the company…
Just received a call from the call centre trying to get me an appointment for a Timeshare Legals rep to help us get all our money back. We’ve been bitten before, and now I see comments on this website that indicates that this is not a legitimate firm or service either!! Are there any legitimate companies out there??
i had there email,had a home visit all signed up paid deposit,they took my paperwork to copy and return.i have not had it returned,and not had deposit either.
S*** company. Never do claims.
TimeShareLegals rep came to our house. All very plausible; took copies of all documentation re Time share company, £4000 and a ‘promise’ we would be extricated from our membership and claim money back. That was mid 2018. No contact from them for a year. We are now chasing up their fr******** activity. They l** about every aspect of their work. Their high turnover of staff is something they ‘hide behind’. HAVE NOTHING TO DO WITH THEM.
Firstly I received telephones call from two Legals Ltd 01923 750 958
The first call Was to set the scene for compensation for my timeshare. And the second one was to fix up a meeting in My home. These calls were approximately 4hours apart. In which this time I had decided not to go ahead with the meeting at my home as I had been to two very similar meetings and although there had been example’s and testimonials shown I found them out to be not true. I spoke with a lad call Craig who was supposed to take on my claim. I explained to him that I had changed mind and didn’t want to said his time. He was really Rudd to me. I gave my reasons and he hung up on me. Basically what I can confirm has been happening in Tenerife with same type of claims with s company call Centurion Mediations in Los Christianos. You pay between £6k and £15k up front. They cancel your timeshare but don’t follow up the compensation. When you contact them for s follow up. They say they’ve done there part with the cancellation policy. But another company would be doing the compensation. People don’t see anything. I was told by them I was rather young to be a timeshare owner as they normally deal with the elderly. Who have money and pay thousands upfront.
These companies all sound genuine. But I believe their ni truth in them especially when they want so much money’s upfront. The sad thing is all the staff working for these companies home and abroad are British workers. So very very sad
I employed timeshare legals in April 2019 to extricate me from a timeshare in Gran Canaria ( ANFI) and also to sever my contract with staycation lodges which I was conned into by ABC lawyers who are now wound up. Since then I have had no concrete progress despite a verbal promise to deal with the ABC lawyers part within 6 weeks and emails to them result in a promise to phone me which does not happen.
How is this case going, are they any closer to getting you out of this, we are in a similar situation and not sure which way to go
I had a communication with Timeshare Legals back in Nov 19 and they told me the claims were now being dealt with by Olton Alexander. I have had nothing from them despite a promise of an update and fear this is just another sc**.
We have had a visit from their rep. It all sounds very plausible, taking Hitachi to court to get our money back from misselling of timeshare. (CLC)
But slightly worried that despite his claims of successful prosecutions against Barclays for similar, they’re not able to produce any info about the people who won their cases already. Citing Data Protection as reason. But not seen anything in press about it either. Is it real?
Got a phone call from Timeshare legal saying I could claim back money arranged a meet next week !
Is this a scam are they genuine ??
same here. wants to meet. been caught before so holding off awaiting members views and comments from here only
I have had a visit from timeshare legals and they have taken a
