Timeshare Mis-selling

If you have been pressured into buying timeshares as an investment by a company or through buyback or resale schemes, you may be able to claim compensation.

If you have been sold one of these schemes we urge you to contact our specialist solicitors for legal advice on a potential compensation claim, and to advise you about ways to escape the management fees agreement.

What is Timeshare?

The term ‘Timeshare’ is commonly misunderstood by the general public for a number of different reasons, however timeshare is a description of a form of holiday ownership. Once acquired by a consumer, you own a right, (either directly or through a club) to use the timeshare for a week or two, (depending on the agreement) in an apartment complex, boat, home, villa or holiday resort in accordance with the contractual period which could be several years. 

Types of Timeshare

The term ‘Timeshare’ has a bad reputation so timeshare sellers and scammers have migrated away from the use of the word to disassociate themselves from the discredited image. Many timeshare companies have started to use other terms to describe what in essence, is a timeshare. Such migrated phrases like “Holiday Club”, “Fractional Ownership”; “Destination Club”; “Vacation Ownership” are common but in essence, all are types of timeshare.
