Highly competitive and saturated markets have made sales representatives in the Timeshare market dishonest and deceptive. In a bid to drive sales, the sales representatives, sometimes in connivance with management, trick innocent citizens into buying timeshares. The terms and conditions will eventually turn out to be loaded against the interests of the consumer. Ignorant of the laws, many consumers do not initiate timeshare termination procedures. Here’s a quick look at some of the commonly resorted to practices that can legally take you out of an infructuous contract.
Concealing facts regarding clauses permitting the company to change terms arbitrarily A contract is always between two or more parties. Changes in the terms and conditions should not be unilateral, and without the consent of the other party. Many timeshare companies have been found to be notorious on this front. Clients/consumers who have been taken for a ride by such entities, can take heart. It is possible to get the contract terminated, depending on the reasons cited.
Non-disclosure of compulsory lifetime association which binds inheritors to the contract Timeshare contracts may be drafted and designed to bind the customer for a lifetime of charges and fees. The same contract may also bind the inheritors of the client to the contract, after the demise of the client. If deliberate and malicious intent can be proved to have been the reason, then the contract can be legally terminated.
Misinformation regarding nature of timeshares Another common ploy adopted by unscrupulous elements is to entice and deceive the clients into believing that timeshares are an investment. Far from the truth, timeshares are not an investment option. If clients have been induced into believing it, it is easy to get an order for timeshare contract cancellation.
Concealing the fact that online rentals of timeshares are possible without membership Online rentals of timeshares do not require any kind of membership. However, sales representatives make a pitch so as to cleverly conceal this fact and create an impression that membership is a must. Proving such deliberate concealment can result in a favorable order for the customer.
Consumers need to be aware of their rights. With a miniscule section of advocates practicing in this domain, it may become difficult for clients to look for suitable advocates. Look for advocates through suitable platforms and fight for your rights. Never be intimated about clauses, the same wrong clauses can turn out to be best cause for termination of contracts.
