Find a reliable, experienced solicitor 

When you initially purchased your timeshare, there was lots of support and guidance, but now it seems almost non-existent. Sound familiar? Here at Athena Law, we have extensive experience with people who feel neglected when it comes to their timeshare. Timeshare contracts are complex and are becoming increasingly difficult to get out of. The contracts are designed specifically with this in mind, so it is important that you consult a real professional when beginning to tackle the in’s and out’s of the law surrounding your timeshare; to discover your rights and find the solution as to how you can fight back with the law on your side. 

Many people claiming to be experts when it comes to timeshare law, so it is crucial that  you check that your chosen solicitor is SRA regulated to avoid the hugely popular scams that are circulating the industry currently. Timeshare scams are so frequent these days but they can be avoided very easily if you request proof of your solicitors’ credibility. At Athena Law, we will happily reassure you with all of the correct paperwork and legal requirements, to make sure you know that when you work with us, your money will be well spent and we will get through your timeshare struggles together. 

A timeshare solicitor will understand the complexities of your timeshare contract and will be able to source the information needed to help you legally cancel without breaking the law. In many cases, a solicitor can file for compensation if you feel your timeshare was missold, or if you possess an in perpetuity (an illegal) contract.

We have ever-growing successful timeshare case studies, so rest assured that your situation, as impossible as it may seem, we will know the best way to tackle it immediately. 

What are my timeshare cancellation options? 

Trying to break the metaphorical chains of your timeshare contract can seem like an impossible task. With Athena Law, we are here to let you know that there are in fact, many avenues that you can explore to escape the pressures of your timeshare and get back on your feet again. 

A first option would be the simplest, try speaking to your resort and be open and honest, seeing if they have any recommendations and making sure that you are on the same page. It is never a good idea to just stop paying your fees, but if you are in this situation we can still help. Some resorts will allow you to give your timeshare back to the resort that you purchased it from; this is rare but there are extenuating situations such as poor health or inability to travel that they will accept. Always try and begin your timeshare exit with honestly, to ensure an easier and less stressful journey. 

Unfortunately, in most cases, your resort will refuse to let you give back your timeshare, or they will make it as difficult as they can to prevent you from going further with your exit. It’s important to remember that these are just intimidation tactics and that your options are far from at a dead end. You could then try and sell your timeshare on to someone else who is willing to purchase it. Very few people are successful with this, however, as timeshares are no longer as desirable as they once were. The timeshare market is so over-saturated that many would argue that this avenue isn’t the best as it wastes a lot of valuable time, all the while your timeshare expenditure is only increasing in the background. 

The safest, quickest and most effective way to cancel your timeshare contract, is the working directly with an SRA regulated solicitor. At Athena Law, our SRA professionals have experienced your situation time and time again, and know exactly the right way to approach your timeshare cancellation efficiently and promptly.
