Supreme Court Rules Against Anfi Timeshare Again
Clients of Anfi SL are celebrating another win against the timeshare giant this week in Madrid. This is just the latest in a string of successful cases for those who’ve been missold timeshare in the past, and not just against Anfi timeshare either.
Whilst Anfi has suffered many blows at the hand of the courts, they are not alone. Silverpoint, too, another large timeshare company, has lost at least five cases in 2017 so far alone, in which they were found to have either misrepresented or missold their timeshare products.
Both Anfi and Silverpoint are members of the RDO (Resort Development Organisation), which claim to ‘represent the best in European vacation ownership’ and are ‘bound by a code of conduct and an independent arbitration scheme, providing levels of protection beyond those required by law’. That may sound pretty reassuring, but unsurprisingly there’s no mention of these court losses by two of their largest members on their website.
Latest Anfi Timeshare Case
This latest case against Anfi timeshare, all of the contracts brought before the court were found to be illegal ‘in perpetuity’ contracts (which means the contract term exceeds the legal limit of 50 years). As a result, all the claimants’ contracts were deemed null and void, and Anfi was forced to pay back the total sum of the claimants’ original investment.
Crucially, claimants also won back all their legal fees and costs, which is an increasingly common move in the courts, meaning that more people will be encouraged to seek timeshare compensation knowing that it won’t cost them more than they can expect to receive.
Now a legal precedent has been set, more and more people will be coming out of the woodwork to claim timeshare compensation for their missold Anfi timeshare, or from other companies who have committed the same offence. In perpetuity contracts, floating weeks, fractional and points-based systems are now in the legal spotlight, all having been deemed illegal by the courts in case after case.
