Do you have Timeshare or points based property?

Customer: replied 5 months ago.
We were advised to go to Spain and legally paid £5,000 to get free of our two Time shares. We have not heard back from them since now this company say we can claim back the fee we paid plus maintenance cost which are due back.
Expert:  Jamie-Law replied 5 months ago.

There are companies that are genuine and others which are not.

If you are asked to pay anything up front, say you are happy to do this as long as it goes into Escrow.

That that is a third party service which holds the money. When and only when the company has completed the work and you are happy do they release it to them.

So if any payments are asked for - then you can agree as long as its on Escrow.

Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
