Hi I have recently been contacted by an ex-partner of almost 20 years ago!! aparently we took out a time share whilst on holiday and although I remembered nothing of this and have made no payments or had any use of it he now wants me to pay half the bill of canceling it!! He has used it so where do I stand??
Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you.
Have you seen any evidence please?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
I have no evidence just what he has told me, I do sort of remember something but like I say it was such a long time ago and obviously being on holiday I am sure alcohol was involved.
Ok. Then you are not liable. If you havent made any payment for 6 years then it is out of time anyway, as it is time barred.
20 years is too long to chase payment.
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
Thanks I just was worried that if I signed a contract i would be liable but like I say he is married to someone else infact they used the timeshare for there honeymoon over 10 years ago. So I can now tell him I will not be paying anything and dont need to worry?
yes indeed.
Does that help?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
Yes thanks so much
Good luck!
