To Claim or not to Claim, Chapter 7, “We were told not to contact the resort…”

Many so called claims companies who also offer an additional service for relinquishment of timeshare; seem to cover all angles of this service in their agreement. More than the actual claims part the consumer attended the meeting for in the first place!

One of the clauses that are included in many of these agreements is the one where that say that you are not allowed to contact your timeshare or exchange company and discuss the agreement.

If the claims company has promised legal claims and /or a relinquishment service regarding your timeshare, check with your timeshare company whether they have received any correspondence from the company you signed up with or connected legal office.

Don’t wait until you receive another maintenance fees invoice and realize that nothing has been done!

Please note that there are a number of so called claims companies that have been misleading consumers regarding claims and relinquishment. Many of them using the following FALSE statements:

  • The company has 100% success in court claims & relinquishments
  • The liability for the timeshare will be forced upon the heirs of the timeshare owners (perpetuity clause)
  • All timeshares have been declared illegal in Spain
  • A “class action” is about to take place against your resort

If you have been told any of the above to persuade you to sign up and pay for their services, we recommend that you ask them to clarify such statements in writing.

Before making a decision, please always allow yourself a decent time to think things over (cooling off) which should be at least 14 days, with copies of the agreement you would be signing and sufficient time to read through it all in your own time and space, with your family lawyer and reconfirming certain statements made.

If you signed up already and think you might dealing with a company that is possibly not going to deliver any of the services, send us a message and we can advice.

    Good evening we have had a letter from a company called LRC representatives & claims telling us that we have to pay £380 to GR8 STAYS WHICH IS the accrued debt stemming back to Oct 2017 which apparently is when we allowed our annual subscriptions to lapse and subsequently breached our contract, in order to avoid further costs and more invasive action we have to pay within 14 days . I would appreciate your thoughts on this , do we ignore or do we pay, many thanks Ruth
