In The Midst of Changing Times, The Timeshare Lawsuit Pushes Back

The timeshare industry is changing. With the sudden flood of timeshare cancellation companies on the market, more and more unhappy timeshare owners are seeking ways to escape the financial burdens associated with vacation ownership. The rising dissatisfaction has led timeshare companies to revamp their industry. Not long ago, we wrote about the sudden resistance from several timeshare resorts to cancel or divest timeshare companies as an intimidation method to retaining guaranteed contract payments. Although a timeshare purchase agreement is a legal document, it can be nullified if the timeshare sales agent(s) used false, misleading, or deceptive tactics into urging unsuspecting consumers to sign on the dotted line. These large resorts often evade legal ramifications by using their unequal bargaining power in their favor. While these resorts have unlimited resources to collect their money by legal action, most timeshare owners cannot afford to stand their ground and fight for their legal rights, so they inevitably give in to the large corporations. It is traditional big dog mentality at its best.

Now, however, with the help of Consumer Rights’ Attorneys, thousands of Consumers are starting to band together to fight back. Consider this David’s sling against Goliath. Over the past few weeks, more and more Consumers have become impending Plaintiffs in lawsuits against these large timeshare resorts, publicly alleging Fraud, Misrepresentation, and Bait & Switch Tactics. Under the direction of the resorts, timeshare sales agents led thousands of innocent victims to the purchase of a deceptive, illusory, unwanted, and eternal timeshare. In some cases, the misconduct is so appalling that criminal charges are sought.

We all know the timeshare industry is one where dissatisfied owners have few means of redemption. Too often, consumers are targeted and pressured into unaffordable timeshare purchases that threaten their savings and retirement. Timeshare cancellations gave unhappy owners a way out of the rising annual maintenance fees and financial burden. Although timeshare cancellation or divestment can still be a valid resource for some timeshare owners, the new wave of relief for owners lies in the timeshare lawsuit. The trick is finding an advocate who will fight on your behalf and will not fall victim to the big bad timeshare resort’s intimidation practices.
