Why do I need to use a specialist timeshare solicitor?
So, you’ve decided now is the time to act to try and leave the timeshare agreement you no longer want but you may be asking yourself if you can do this on your own or if you should use the services of a specialist timeshare solicitor. At this point, you have probably already looked into your timeshare contract, and you will have realised that the technical language can be difficult to understand. We strongly advise that you get help from an expert timeshare solicitor to improve your chances of successfully leaving your contract. For many people, the stress of dealing with an unwanted timeshare is enough alone without having to deal with uncompromising timeshare companies who will know the legalities of the contracts and could leave you feeling lost.
For you to leave your contract, you will need evidence of the misrepresentation or unclear advice you were given when you were first sold your agreement. An expert will be able to find unlawful clauses and spot irregularities in your contract that can help to nullify the timeshare agreement, however, to someone not trained in timeshare law these irregularities can be difficult, if not impossible to spot if you don’t know what you’re looking for. It can be challenging to make a compelling case as most of the evidence is tied up within the contract itself, but this is where a timeshare solicitor can really help you as they will know exactly what to look for.
Without the help of a specialist, timeshare companies can try and convince you that you will never win the case legally. In some cases, people trying to leave their contracts have been told they will be filed with a countercase or have faced intimidation tactics from companies who will try anything to get you to stop trying to leave your contract. On your own, it could feel worrying and be difficult to know your legal standpoint. A specialist solicitor will be able to tell if these are merely false claims being used as a bluff or if they are indeed something to worry about.
It may be that it is the money that is your biggest concern when thinking about using a timeshare solicitor. You’ve already been stung by the timeshare contract hanging over you with its increasing maintenance costs – not to mention the sum of money you had to hand over initially when you signed up. It’s no wonder that further spending on trying to get rid of it would cause worry. The good news is that not only will it speed up the process by hiring a professional but many companies will work on a no win no fee basis if they feel your case is likely to win and there is a high chance that legal fees will be paid as part of a settlement agreement.
A reputable company will thoroughly review your case to see if they think you have a high chance of being successful. This means that they will only take on your case if they think they are going to win it for you. It’s essential to do your research and go with a company that is professional and has a high success rate and trained experts. Unfortunately, as with every industry, there are some companies out there who do not have your best interests as a concern and could trick you into losing even more time and money.
It’s important to remember in all of this that you are not on your own. Across the world, people are in the same position as you and have felt just as cheated and frustrated in their timeshare contract. Many people are winning successful claims against their timeshare resorts and companies and are saying goodbye to the worry and stress that has come with them.
