Spanish Supreme Court rules that ANFI Timeshares were mis-sold and orders full refunds of up to €53000 to Timeshare Owners. Are you also affected?
The Anfi Group of Gran Canaria operates one of the most aggressively marketed Timeshare resorts in Europe and the ground-breaking Spanish Supreme Court judgment of January 2015, and similar cases that have followed, have set legal precedents with wide-reaching consequences for Anfi Timeshare owners.
In January 2015, the Spanish Supreme Court ruled in favour of Timeshare owner Mrs Tove Grimsbo, declaring that Anfi Sales SL were guilty of mis-selling Timeshare in breach of Spanish and European Law. The Court ordered that the contract was null & void and ordered Anfi to refund a total of €40000 to Mrs Grimsbo, including the original purchase cost and subsequent maintenance fees.
In this case, the Court ruled that Anfi had broken two specific laws. Firstly, Anfi had required that Mrs Grimsbo paid a deposit within the statutory 14-day cooling off period; and secondly, Anfi had sold the Timeshare contract "in perpetuity", which effectively committed Mrs Grimsbo (and her next of kin) to paying timeshare maintenance fees to Anfi for ever.
Further judgments against Anfi and other timeshare groups have followed, with additional legal precedents being set regarding upgrades/trade-ins, "floating weeks" and other instances of mis-selling, with Timeshare owners being awarded full refunds of up to €53000.
