Our lawyers are leaders in timeshare claims, winning compensation awards for their clients since 2016.

UK timeshare regulations were amended by the ‘Timeshare, Holiday Products, Resale and Exchange Contracts Regulations 2018’ to ensure that UK consumers purchasing long-term holiday products are afforded the same protections that they were before the UK’s departure from the EU.

UK Timeshare regulations govern the right of withdrawal from a contract, pre-contractual information that must be given to consumers before a contract is signed, timeframes for what counts as a timeshare, the exchange of money in the cooling-off period and stipulate criteria which would make the timeshare contract unenforceable.

In addition to timeshare regulations, consumers can rely on the Consumer Rights Act 2015. This Act imports minimum standards into contracts such as requiring goods to be of satisfactory quality and as described. It also applies a statutory test of fairness to contract terms and conditions included in a standard contract. As the Act applies to business-to-consumer contracts in general, it also applies to timeshare contracts.

The ‘Consumer Protection from Unfair Trading Regulations 2008’ can also assist a timeshare claim as it prohibits businesses from engaging in unfair commercial practices before, during and after a contract is made with a consumer.

As with any contract, you should always ask a legal professional who understands contract law to study your contract carefully to see if there is a viable claim.

We deal with all types of timeshare ownerships including:

  • Points based timeshares
  • Fractional Ownerships
