Quite often, one’s signature on a timeshare contract is obtained by fraud. And the debt that it creates generally outweighs any benefit to the owner. But to address it properly, it is imperative that you retain a licensed attorney.
You can complain ad nauseum about the pack of lies that you were told during the high pressure sales pitch, how the ‘hour-long’ presentation became four or five hours, about how they wore you down emotionally, and about the rapid-fire signings of ‘routine’ closing documentation presented, as the salesman riffled through page after page.
And you can go and on about the rude awakening when the first bill came in the mail, and the shock you felt when you finally had the chance to actually read the sales contract at home. And then there was the awful frustration of actually trying to book their vacation, only to be told that you didn’t have enough ‘points’ or some other excuse.
But going over this disturbing series of events is not likely to carry much weight legally. After all, it’s your word against there’s, and that contract you signed is chock full of waivers and disclaimers to protect the developer.
But experienced, competent counsel will know how to exploit other points of vulnerability. For example, the developer may well be perpetrating an ongoing conflict of interest. Improper handling of trust funds are also a major issue.
This is where the developer is most vulnerable. This is where your leverage is. And by far the best way to leverage this is through a licensed attorney, who will have subpoena power over books and records.
So call us free of charge to discuss your situation, please. Your problems are not insurmountable.
