Our Story

AUTUMN 2017


Welcome to ecc’s Autumn newsletter

In this newsletter we bring you up to date with what is going on at ecc, so here are a selection of our most important developments and news stories that relate to the timeshare industry.

This issue covers our move to our new headquarters in Spain and, more importantly, details some of our latest successful claim cases that we submitted on behalf of our clients. All of which adds to the momentum to meet the challenges of the timeshare industry and contributes to future success for our clients.

LATEST SUCCESS STORIES

Palm Oasis
A number of success stories have recently hailed from the courts in Gran Canaria where one of our client's timeshare was deemed to be null and void for numerous infringements. These included the perpetuity clause which was included in the contract. The judge ordered Tasolan to repay the sum of £42,462.41. The case was submitted by our legal partners CLA in Gran Canaria.

Salina Wharf
During the last quarter, we have successfully processed 8 separate clients claims totalling £50,000 against Club Salina Wharf. These only took a number of weeks to process and each client has already received refunds into their bank accounts, plus interest.

Grandview Las Vegas
Following extensive work by the legal team at M1Legal, we are pleased to announce that El Dorado Resorts (USA) has agreed to cancel our clients purchase contract at Grandview Las Vegas and to release them from any further obligation related to the timeshare interest. This includes the cancellation of the finance loan signed for $17,091.00

Congratulations to all our successful clients and we look forward to sharing more success stories with you.

INTRODUCING M1 LEGAL, FORMERLY EUROPEAN CLAIMS CHAMBER

Since its inception in 2016, the European Claims Chamber has made unprecedented headway within the field of timeshare contract law. In order to support their ambitions to deliver greater breadth of legal services, they have recently undergone a new brand identity.

Senior lawyer for M1 Legal, Patricia Criada Navas commented:

“This new brand identity will help reflect the value our firm is bringing to the legal industry. Although the name, look and even location of the team has changed, the fundamental people, practices and quality of our legal department remain unchanged as the basis on which we were built. Moreover, the latest developments strongly position us to continue to achieve more for you as our clients and our future as a business.”

INDUSTRY NEWS

Industry bodies across many sectors perform very important roles and when they succeed in supporting and regulating their industry to ensure both the customer and the organisations are treated fairly, they are invaluable.

Unfortunately, the timeshare industry has a tarnished reputation caused by years of malpractice and a lack of truly independent regulatory bodies. There are those who claim to be governed by alleged “codes of practice” however in reality they exist to protect the best interests of the timeshare developers rather than the consumers.

For example, The Resort Development Association (RDO) and UK based Timeshare Association for Timeshare Owners and Committees (TATOC) both claim to independently monitor and regulate the industry on behalf of the consumer.

This is however simply not the case; they are both controlled and funded by some of the timeshare industry’s most powerful companies. As such, their independence is not guaranteed and their interests may not lie primarily on the consumer’s side. We therefore advise that any information you receive from them is checked by an alternative independent third party before taking further action.

In fact, earlier this year TATOC went into administration following a judgement against them for defamation, further reinforcing the fact that the information published was not considered factual.

We hope you enjoyed reading this newsletter and found the information useful.
