Our legal team have won two cases in court against Silverpoint Vacations during the past week.
Silverpoint is a Timeshare group with resorts in the Canary Islands, Spain. We’ve represented two sets of clients in the courts this week against the group. Both cases were heard in Arona court, Tenerife. The contracts that had been provided by Silverpoint were found to be unlawful. The contracts lacked accommodation details such as what exactly the clients owned and when specifically they could have access to their units.
We are pleased to say that on both accounts our well deserved clients were awarded by the judge, totalling up to £32,928. Needless to say, our clients are happy to be flying free from their timeshares.
On top of our victories we’ve also had further results in the courts. During this week alone we have won 7 jurisdiction cases, all against Club La Costa.
The contractual names being:
What this means is that Club La Costa have attempted to declare that their cases should not be heard in the Spanish courts under the terms of their contracts however the judge agreed with our reasoning as to why we believe their cases should be judged under Spanish law. Also as the clients are located in the United Kingdom it is their choice of where they would like to claim. Therefore denying their request and continuing their legal processes through the Spanish courts.
Club la Costa have several resorts in the Costa Del Sol, mainland Spain and in Tenerife, Canary Islands. There were a variety of different courts used to hear the appeals including; Fuengirola 5, Fuengirola 3, Fuengirola 2 all in mainland Spain and Arona 5 in Tenerife.
All in all, a prosperous week for the M1 Legal team. We hope to bring more great news to our victories page next week!
